DFS reports trading ‘significantly ahead of expectations’

DFS has traded strongly in recent weeks

DFS, the specialist sofa retailer, has reported strong trading in recent weeks as consumers splashed out on their homes.

DFS said that since its last update in mid July, it has traded well online and in store and that year-on-year order intake growth over the past six weeks is equivalent to around £70m of revenues.  

Trading is “significantly ahead of our initial expectations”, DFS reported. The latest performance was in addition to a previously announced strong opening order book that will generate a further revenue benefit of £100m.
