Dunelm sees earnings jump

Sales growth at homeware retailer Dunelm picked up over Easter, driven by promotions that held back progress on profit margins, the group said yesterday.

The company – which mainly operates at out-of-town stores – said sales at shops open at least a year rose three per cent in the nine weeks to 24 April.

However, Dunelm said sales growth had slowed a little since the holiday.
