Post-lockdown sales soar at ScS

Furniture retailer ScS has experienced orders returning to almost the same level as they were at before the coronavirus crisis.

The furniture retailer, which has stores in Cheltenham and Gloucester, said that orders since 24th May had increased by 92.2 per cent compared with last year, as reported by Retail Gazette.

However, store sales fell by 92.5 per cent during lockdown, as they were forced to close their doors for two months.

Stores reopened on 23rd May and the company saw an increase in both online and in-store sales as a result of pent-up demand.

For the 52 weeks to 25th July, ScS reported sales of £268 million, compared with £333 million for 2018-19.

The company said it is encouraged by performance since reopening and that it is in a good position to survive the pandemic.
