Mobile phone accessories etailer Mobile Fun is to expand further into Europe with the launch of websites in the Netherlands and Spain after notching up a record Christmas.
Mobile Fun, which delivers to 21 countries in Europe, will launch the two websites by June.
The company revealed strong Christmas trading figures, with UK total sales up 10.4% in the quarter to December 31.
Mobile Fun said it expects turnover to grow to almost £10m in its current financial year, which ends in March. Last year the retailer recorded revenue of £7.1m.
Mobile Fun’s European websites, Mobilefun.de and Mobilefun.fr, accounted for 15.9% of revenue in the quarter.
Mobile Fun founder and chairman Anthony Cook said: “The quarter’s record figures were delivered in spite of adverse weather conditions, which affected UK consumer confidence in online retailers during the run-up to Christmas 2010. Management responded swiftly to the challenge through the use of tactical marketing activities to help combat the slowdown in sales.
“Our outlook for 2011 is positive. We are on course to meet our European expansion plans and are in the process of adding new websites.”
