Majestic toasts surge in sales and eyes new store openings

John Colley Majestic

Majestic Wine has toasted a surge in sales during lockdown and lifted the lid on its growth plans, including new store openings.

The booze specialist said revenues more than quadrupled during the height of the coronavirus pandemic, as consumers drank more at home while bars, pubs and clubs were closed to the public. 

Majestic served more than 150,000 new customers through its home delivery service while its stores were closed. It has also ramped up its partnership with Deliveroo, offering rapid home deliveries from 137 stores across the UK.
