Reiss sales benefit from royal boost

FASHION chain Reiss said the Duchess of Cambridge’s public appearances in outfits by the brand helped to raise its profile and boost sales last year. The family-owned retailer said total sales excluding franchises rose four per cent to £91.1m in the year to 31 January 2012, up from £87.5m in 2011. Pre-tax profits were flat at £3.64m, according to accounts filed at Companies House.
