Dune Group Christmas sales sparkle

Footwear business The Dune Group, which comprises the Dune chain and the former Shoe Studio Group fascias, recorded a 17.4% rise in like-for-like sales over the Christmas period.

The footwear group notched up the rise during the nine weeks to January 2, when total sales for the group increased year-on-year by 153%.

The retailer said in a statement that the “exceptional performance” was achieved despite delaying the start of the winter Sale by four days.

Margins during the period were maintained and the integration of Shoe Studio Group “far exceeded expectations” and has now been completed, said the group.

The Dune Group said in a statement that “despite the macro economic uncertainties the group remains positive about the prospects for 2010.”

Shoe Studio Group, the former Baugur-backed footwear group, was bought out of administration by Dune executive chairman Daniel Rubin and chief executive John Egan in March last year.

The Dune Group comprises the Dune chain and Shoe Studio Group brands including Pied a Terre and Bertie, as well as more than 300 department store concessions.
