Homeware retailer upbeat as online sales soar

Dunelm, the UK homeware retailer, has reported a solid sales performance in its third quarter results to March 31.

The company, which has 169 superstores including outlets in Gloucester and Cheltenham, said total revenue for the quarter rose by 5.1 per cent to £268.2 million.

Total like-for-like revenue was up 4.6 per cent and organic online sales rose by 35.7 per cent.

Dunelm's chief executive Nick Wilkinson said they had seen a good sales performance over the quarter, despite a challenging consumer backdrop.

"Our continuing market share gains in the homewares category reflect the underlying strength of our brand and operating model, and enhance our position as market leader," he said.

"Having joined in February I am increasingly excited about the opportunities available to Dunelm to develop and grow a truly multichannel proposition."
