Halfords boss ‘positive on prospects’ as sales rise in key growth categories


Halfords has reported an uptick in sales despite the impacts of supply chain disruption during the current trading period.

The cycle specialists recorded a 19% rise in sales over the 20-week period to August 20 compared with the same period two years ago, up 17% on a like-for-like basis.

Halfords attributed this to sales growth in its key areas – including retail motoring and retail cycling driven by the increase in staycations this year.
