Sales remain 2% lower than in 2020, where there was a surge in people carrying out home improvements over the lockdown.

“Looking ahead we will continue to invest in our digital platforms and our showrooms, our delivery network, our UK manufacturing capacity, and with expansion into other home categories, we are well positioned to succeed.”
