Electricals retailer Darty, formerly Kesa, reported a 2.2% fall in revenue for the six months to October 31.

The drop reflected a poor performance in the retailer’s domestic market, where sales slipped 3.9%, and its developing division (Spain, Italy and Turkey), where sales fell 2.6%.

Like-for-likes showed a similar pattern, falling 1.7%. Online sales increased by over 10%.
