Some Good News

Some good news is always a morale booster. Catalogue & eBusiness magazine in the UK reports that fashion cataloguer/retailer White Stuff reported record underlying profits of £13.3 million for the year ended 29th April. That’s up 42 percent from the previous year. Sales rose 34 percent, to £58.4 million, while home shopping sales soared 70 percent.

Also, outdoor clothing manufacturer/marketer Regatta Group, which owns cataloguer/retailers Craghoppers and Hawkshead, has bought a fourth warehouse to accommodate its continued growth. The company’s annual sales for the year ended 31st January were £110 million, up 28 percent from the previous year.

We know that direct sales have been strong in many areas, but these numbers are particularly impressive! Way to go, guys and gals!
