ScS profits rise as pent-up demand boosts sales


ScS has registered upticks in profits and sales as pent-up demand during the coronavirus crisis drove “record” first-half performance.

The furniture specialist recorded a pre-tax profit of £18m in the 26 weeks to January 23, compared with a £600,000 loss the previous year. Operating profit surged from £1.2m to £20m.

ScS received government support of £6.6m during the period through the furlough scheme and business rates relief, which helped cushion the impact of the pandemic on its bottom line.
