Dunelm has turned in a robust first-half performance, driving total sales up by 26% in the 26 weeks to January 2.
Like-for-like sales increased 15.4% compared to a 5.6% decline the previous year.
In the financial year to date, six new superstores have been opened, in Norwich, Londonderry, Broadstairs, Bridgend, St Helens and Cheltenham, bringing the total number of superstores to 88.
The company has also completed four major store refits.
Chief executive Will Adderley said he was “delighted with our excellent trading performance over the last six months”, but warned that it would become much more difficult to sustain like-for-like growth over the next six to 12 months.
“However, we have a strong pipeline of new stores coming through so I am confident that our overall business will continue to grow and to become stronger.”
