Online sales up at Dixons Carphone
By Sarah Wood | 10th September 2020
Online sales across Dixons Carphone more than tripled while stores were closed this year, with a 14 per cent rise in like-for-like electrical sales.
The company, which owns Currys, PC World and Carphone Warehouse and has stores in Gloucester and Cheltenham, said sales of computers and appliances soared during April, as people started working from home, as reported by Reuters.
But mobile phone sales were down 56 per cent in the UK and Ireland, as a result of the closure of stand-alone Carphone Warehouse stores and as the trend for people changing their phones less often continues.
Meanwhile, the company's Nordic arm saw online sales soar 49 per cent in the 17 weeks to 29th August. The region has seen higher profits and market share even during the coronavirus crisis, when stores remained open.
