Dunelm reports ‘robust’ trading despite sales fall

Dunelm store front

Homewares specialist Dunelm has posted a fall in quarterly sales but described trading as “robust” and maintained profit forecasts in the face of tough trading conditions. 

Dunelm’s sales fell 8% to £357m – up 36% on a three-year basis – in the first quarter. The retailer said the decline was “as expected” against a strong comparable period last year when there was pent-up demand in the wake of the pandemic.
