Shoe Zone reports profit rise in maiden interim results

In its first interim results since it floated on the stock market, Shoe Zone revealed that revenues declined to £82.9 million in the six months to 5 April 2014 from £98.9 in the same period a year earlier after the planned closure of a number of temporary stores.

During the period, Shoe Zone opened three new stores, relocated two and completed nine refits. It also launched on Amazon which the retailer said was delivering "good results".

Shoe Zone chief executive Anthony Smith said: "The company has had a good first half with profits significantly ahead of the same period last year combined with a high level of cash conversion.

"Our strong market position ensures we are well placed to benefit from any growth in the UK footwear market and the Board continues to look to the future with confidence."
