Stax reveals bullish sales figures

Speaking at the supplier presentation at the company's new Manchester warehouse, Mr Wright compared the cash & carry chain's latest sales figures with other market data.

"The Garden Centre Association data for April show sales up 38% - very impressive," he said. "But our figures for April show sales up 58% in Manchester ¬ ¬- and up a staggering 76% in Birmingham."

British Retail Consortium data showed retail sales up 4.6% year-on-year in April, he said. Stax meanwhile achieved an overall sales increase of 8%.

"And footfall figures from the Retail Traffic Index were up 4.2% in April," he added. "Stax beat the market with a fantastic 16%."

Finally, Mr Wright quoted some department sales data for the Manchester branch for the past two months: paint up 16%, housewares up 23%, car care up 37%, gardening up 58%, and electrical up 68%.

Stax Sales Increase
By Acustomer
Most of the sales increase has come from the 30-50% increase in prices from last year. And the increase in yellow tickets, which do not allow retailers their 20% discount.
