ScS orders are now almost at the same level as they were prior to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic. The increase in order levels came as a result of “pent-up” demand, according to ScS, with both online and in-store revenue increasing since the reopening of its store network. During the COVID-19 lockdown period store sales slumped by 92.5%.

For the 52 weeks ended 25 July, the sofa, carpet and flooring specialist has seen sales of £268 million, compared with £333 million in the previous year.
