Motorpoint Group have reported a 18.0% increase in revenue to £483.2m for the six months to 30 September 2017. Profit before tax stood at £9.7m for the same period.

Pets at Home have reported a 6.0% increase in group revenue to £468.0m for the 28 weeks to 12 October 2017. Statutory pre-tax profit decreased by 11.3% to £40.8m for the same period.

Topps Tiles have reported a 1.5% decrease in group revenue to £211.8m for the 52 weeks to 30 September 2017. Like-for-like sales decreased by 2.9%, while pre-tax profits decreased by 15.0% to £17.0m for the same period.

Lifestyle LFL sales were up by +3.88% this week, off of a weak base of -3.54% for the same week last year. The result was the best seen for lifestyle since mid-September. Department stores and electrical retailers saw generally strongly positive LFL sales this week, while gift retailers and outdoor goods retailers were divided.

Fashion LFLs were down by -0.76% this week but an improvement on negative base of -3.78% for the same week last year. This was the category’s best performance since late September, although two-thirds of fashion respondents reported negative LFL sales this week.

Homeware LFL sales were up by +6.60% this week off of a very positive base of +9.43%. Again, department store results were more polarised, whereas furniture sales remained strong.

Non-store LFLs were up by +24.70% this week, clearly ahead of the 20% threshold and perhaps a reflection of increased discounting by retailers online. Results were very strong in the Homewares category which saw LFL sales growth of +36.18%, followed by Lifestyle with growth of +23.79%.
