Dunelm 1

Dunelm has delivered “a strong performance” as sales and profits rise during its 40th year of trading.

The homeware retailer’s total like-for-like sales increased 10.7% to £1.1bn during the 52 weeks to June 29 as both online and store like-for-likes increased 35.1% and 7.7% respectively during the same period.

Chief executive Nick Wilkinson attributed the strong results to the progress the retailer has made with its “multichannel proposition whilst maintaining the breadth and depth of [the] specialist customer offer in homewares”.

Dunelm’s profit before tax jumped 23.4% to £125.9m as the retailer focused on its ‘Customer 1st’ strategy and the “core Dunelm business”.
