Kingfisher revenues rise as online sales treble in lockdown

Bq exterior 07

Kingfisher has posted a spike in second-quarter sales following “strong demand” across its European markets and online.

The B&Q and Screwfix owner said group like-for-like sales jumped 22% in the three months to July 18. 

Kingfisher said the figures were boosted by store reopenings in the UK and France from mid-April and “strong” ecommerce growth – its digital sales trebled during the period. 

However, during the wider six-month period, Kingfisher’s like-for-like sales dropped 3.7%.
