Dunelm confirms that it generated revenues of £1.55bn for the 53 weeks to 3 July 2022. Pre-tax profits reached £209 million and the business says that sales have continued strongly in the first ten weeks of the current financial year.
Dunelm chief executive Nick Wilkinson said: “We feel confident and well prepared to weather the current economic pressures – we emerged from an unprecedented global pandemic as a bigger, better business and we believe we have the tools in place to do that again.
“That said, the operating and economic environment is extremely challenging, in this environment, we have to make every pound count, both for ourselves through our tight operational grip and cost discipline, and for our customers, through our offer of outstanding value at all price points.
“Dunelm, at its heart, offers customers great choice and value. Now is not the time for us to shy away from that, but for us to fully embrace it, whether it’s our ‘Winter Warm’ collection or our ‘Student Essentials’ range, we think Dunelm’s unique and market-leading offer is more relevant than ever before.”
