Sales jump at Dunelm
Dunelm has seen sales jump in the past quarter and has raised its profit forecast.
The chain says it will now see pre-tax profits of about £158m for the year to 26 June, after sales jumped by 43.9% in the quarter compared with 2019 and it delayed its summer sale.
Full year sales were 26.3% higher than 2020 and 21.4% higher than 2019 at £1.33bn.
Construction of a 190,000sqft distribution centre at the Daventry International Freight Terminal is underway which will allow it to grow its furniture offer.
A further warehouse is being built in Stoke, where its existing distribution hub is, which will be used for online sales.
