Big rise in sales for H&M
By Sarah Wood | 15th March 2023
Fashion retailer H&M saw a big increase in sales for the first quarter.
Sales at H&M, which has stores in Cheltenham and Gloucester, were up by 12% between December 1, 2022 and February 28, as reported by Retail Gazette.
Excluding Russia, Belarus and Ukraine, the increase in net sales was actually 16%.
Last year, profits fell at H&M, as it fought to hang onto its price-sensitive customers and struggled with rising energy and freight costs.
The fashion retailer has just launched a resale programme in the US in collaboration with ThredUp, an online consignment platform, which is H&M's first resale marketplace in the US.
