Dunelm sales boosted by ‘favourable’ weather

Dunelm increased its like-for-like sales by 9.3% in the 13 weeks to 30 September.

The retailer’s first quarter like-for-like store sales grew by 6.5% while online sales climbed by 46.2%.

Total revenue was up 24.8% to £247.9 million,

Dunelm chairman Andy Harrison said: “We have maintained the good momentum from the final quarter of the last financial year. Our like-for-like sales were boosted by favourable weather comparatives and, pleasingly, we continue to outperform the homewares market, with strong growth across the business, especially online.”

The company opened five new stores in the period, taking its superstore footprint to 165 stores. It is also legally committed to a further five new stores, one of which is a relocation, all of which are due to open before the end of the calendar year.

Harrison added: “We head into the second quarter having opened a number of new stores and with an improved seasonal offer for the Christmas period, which we’re sure will resonate well with customers.”
