Fashion retailer Blue Inc delivered strong Christmas sales, led by its eponymous chain.
Like-for-like sales at Blue Inc stores advanced 9% in December. At group level the retailer, which bought 46 Officers Club shops from the administrator in March last year, posted a 5.5% like-for-like rise and total sales surged 75%.
Officers Club like-for-likes were flat, “held back by our ongoing stock clearance exercise” a spokesman said.
The retailer continues to expand. Last week Blue Inc agreed to buy 20 former D2 stores from the administrator.
