Christmas sales soar 20% at Dr Martens

Dr Martens has reported strong Christmas trading figures with total UK retail sales up 65% on last year.

Both UK and global like-for-likes rose 20% during the month of December. Total group retail sales were up 69% and group retail like-for-like sales rose 15% compared to last year.

Online sales were also up 36% year on year.

The news comes as the £300m deal in which Permira Funds acquired R Griggs Group Limited, the parent company and licensee of the Dr Martens brand, is completed.

David Suddens, chief executive of Dr Martens, said: “We had a good Christmas in all regions and all channels and didn’t have to discount early to get growth. The New Year has started well and the rest of the year looks set to be strong.”
