Charlies MD, Rebecca, appears live on Sky News!

After bucking all retail trends with sales growth over festive period

Last week the BRC released their reports about 2019 Christmas trading and there was a lot of doom and gloom about retail – so we decided we’d write to Sky to tell them about how we were bucking the trend. Today our MD, Rebecca, appeared live on the Ian King show on Sky News talking about Charlies, our success over Christmas and our plans for the future.

During the 10 week Christmas trading period, Charlies delivered 4.91% like-for-like growth. As an independent, family-run retailer this makes us incredibly proud.

We’d like to take this opportunity to thank our wonderful customers for their loyalty in shopping with us. Without your continued support and our dedicated staff who work tirelessly to provide you the very best, none of this would be possible.

Managing Director of Charlies Stores, Rebecca Lloyd, said

“During difficult times for retail we have seized opportunities and delivered fantastic results. We aim to bring back old fashioned values in retail. It isn’t complicated – offering excellent service and good value every day works for us. We never price high to go low and avoid gimmicks like Black Friday, so customers can trust us.”

Thank you!
