• New warehouse 'fit out' on track for commissioning in Spring 2011

Nick Robertson, CEO, commented:
"I am pleased to report on another very strong quarter with retail sales growth accelerating to 59%, up from 50% in the first half. Our UK business grew 23% and our International business grew 156%, helped by the introduction of our US, French and German websites in October 2010 and a free global shipping offer in the run up to Christmas. International sales now represent 44% of the total up from 37% in the first half.

With International sales continuing to perform well, we remain confident about the outlook and expect our full year results to be in line with market expectations".
