ScS sales almost double since stores reopen
ScS has seen sales almost double since its stores re-opened.
The chain’s sales in the eight weeks from 24 May to 25 July were 92.2% higher. ‘This reflects pent up demand, which has been supported by our well executed re-opening plans, our continued focus on value and customer service, and our increased investment in targeted marketing over the last two months,’ it says.
Orders for the full year were 5.9% lower, with delivered sales of £268m compared with £333m.
The group has repaid the £12m it borrowed during shutdown and has increased cash to £82.3m
