Quiz has posted strong Christmas trading results with total sales rising by 20% to £8.8 million in the month of December.

 While sales in UK stores and concessions climbed by 64% year-on-year to £5.2 million, online sales amounted to £2.1 million following a 26% decline. The reduction followed the termination of certain third-party partnerships during the financial year, although sales through Quiz’s own websites were consistent with the previous 12-month period.

Meanwhile Quiz’s international business, which comprises franchise partners and five stores and 15 concessions in Ireland, increased its sales by 11%.

Quiz said like-for-like revenues were broadly consistent with sales generated in the same period two years ago, prior to the pandemic.
