DFS Furniture profit jumps in H1 as revenue rises on pent-up demand

By BFN News | 09:46 AM | Tuesday 09 March, 2021


Furniture retailer DFS Furniture reported a sharp jump in profit as revenue was bolstered by driven by pandemic-fueled shift in consumer spending to the home. For the 26 weeks ended 27 December 2020, pre-tax profit rose £56.2 million to £72.1 million year-on-year as revenue increased 18.3% to £572.6 million. Profit was driven by strong order intake in the period, as a result of 'pent-up demand from 'lockdown one', market share gains and a shift in consumer spending to the home,' the company said. 'We expect to see a good level of activity in the home market as Covid-19 restrictions ease and, having accelerated the execution of our strategy and grown our market share, we are well set for future growth,' the company said.
