ScS to exit House of Fraser by end of January

2326

ScS has revealed it would stop trading in all 27 of its concessions within House of Fraser by the end of January.

According to Reuters, the decision comes after the furniture retailer’s House of Fraser concessions accounted for a 52.5 per cent decline in like-for-like orders in the 12 weeks to October 20.

ScS added that its concessions business made up 2.7 per cent of its order intake for that period.

Earlier this month, the Sunderland-based business reported gross sales had improved £2.8 million to £352.3 million in the 52 weeks to July 28, with revenue up £4.3 million to £337.3 million.

Reporting back on the full year results at the time, ScS chief executive David Knight said the “downturn in sales” at the retailer’s House of Fraser concessions had been “more than offset by growth” in the core ScS business.
