Liberty sales climb 40%

Sales at Liberty, the iconic department store and fabrics business, rose 40% in the first four months of this year.

The growth of the AIM-listed retailer’s fabrics division and online sales, as well as the landmark shop, helped bring the sales total to £26m in the period to April, compared to £18.5m in the equivalent four months last year.

Talks about selling Liberty for £32m to private equity house BlueGem Capital Partners are ongoing. Parent company MWB said it would make a further announcement about a possible sale of the business at an “appropriate time”.

Liberty yesterday completed the sale of its iconic Great Marlborough Street premises for £41.5m. It also signed a licensing deal for a range of Liberty of London menswear.
