Festive fever follows sales rise at Arcadia

Wallis unveiled its Christmas window display (pictured), designed by Elemental Design, in its six top stores last week, coinciding with parent company Arcadia Group’s annual results.

The group’s operating profits rose by 1.6% to £293.3 million for the year to September 1, despite one of the wettest summers on record.

Arcadia owner Sir Philip Green said that total sales rose by just over 5% to £1.86 billion. Topshop remained the jewel in the crown, achieving 4% like-for-like sales growth over the year. Miss Selfridge made a profit again after falling into the red last year. However, Evans, Dorothy Perkins and Wallis are all understood to have struggled since the year-end, with sales reported to have fallen by 5%.
