Dune sales up after festive boost

The Dune Group has posted a 5.2% rise in retail sales for the 52 weeks ending 27 January, after seeing a festive boost.

The footwear retailer said its Christmas trading period saw sales grow 7.2% on a like-for-like basis in the six weeks to 30 December.

Its autumn 17 season saw retail sales increase by 6.5%. Retail sales in overseas markets accounted for 26% of sales.

Executive chairman Daniel Rubin said sales in January continue to be strong “despite a challenging retail environment” in the UK.

“Our strong results over Christmas and throughout 2017 are testament to the hard work of our teams and our strategic investments in product, our omnichannel proposition and brand marketing,” Rubin said.

“Our focus on delivering exceptional customer service and offering a point of difference at great value has proved popular with our customers and we have successfully maintained our gross margin despite the impact of sterling’s relative weakness during much of the year.”
