CARD Factory was the bearer of good news yesterday as the greetings card specialist posted an 8.7 per cent jump in sales over the past nine months.

The retailer, which floated in April, said a combination of new store openings, its online expansion and good growth at existing stores had helped boost its performance in the nine months to 31 October.

It said it remained on track to own 1,200 stores across the UK after opening 48 in the year to date, bringing its total estate to 761 stores.
