Card Factory keeps growing

Have your say

CARD Factory hopes to sell more gift candles in the run-up to Christmas, as part of a strategy to develop its non-card product range.

In its interim management statement, the Wakefield-based company said it had achieved positive growth in like-for-like sales from its store estate.

The company also said it had a strong pipeline of new store opportunities for the next financial year, with the further development of its complementary online division.

In the nine months ended October 31 2014, revenue increased by 8.7 per cent, driven by a combination of like-for-like sales growth, new store roll out and further growth in the online division.
