ScS ‘encouraged’ by post-lockdown trading results


ScS has recorded a sharp uptick in its order intake since lockdown regulations began to ease, as it feels the benefits of pent-up consumer demand.

With all stores forced to closed from March 23, the furniture retailer saw a 92.5% decline in order numbers from March 22 to May 23, compared with the same period last year.

However, from May 24 to July 25, ScS reported a 92.2% increase in orders year on year, which it attributes to ”pent-up demand, which has been supported by our well-executed reopening plans, our continued focus on value and customer service, and our increased investment in targeted marketing over the last two months”.
