Dunelm's HY sales up over 18 pct; CFO to step down

Feb 20 (Reuters) - British homewares retailer Dunelm Group Plc said total sales for its half-year rose over 18 percent, aided by its Worldstores acquisition.

Dunelm, which sells cushions, bedding and kitchen equipment, said total sales rose 18.4 percent to 545.4 million pounds ($762 million) with like-for-like sales up 6 percent for the 26 weeks to Dec. 30.

Sales were boosted by Dunelm’s acquisition of WS Group — which owns the Worldstores, Kiddicare and Achica brands — made in 2016.

Separately, the company also said Chief Financial Officer Keith Down will step down in June.
