Strong Christmas lifts Jacques Vert

Like-for-like sales at womenswear retail group Jacques Vert rose 1.9% in the 11 weeks to January 8 despite trade in the three weeks before Christmas being “significantly” down.

The group, which includes the Jacques Vert, Windsmoor, Planet and Precis Petite chains, said sales to the end of November were strong, but that overall performance was impacted by poor weather in December.

Although sales were down in the three weeks to December 24, they rebounded in the two weeks after Christmas.

Gross margin during the period was lower than at the same time the previous year as Jacques Vert reacted to higher levels of discounting by competitors.
