DTR reports pre-Christmas retail sales up

AUCKLAND, 21 December 2010 – New Zealand retailer dtr is celebrating a successful end to the year with its most profitable quarter since launching a national rebrand of its 21 retail stores three years ago.

The company today announced it is anticipating a 40 percent increase in EBIT in the FY11 Financial Year, which has come about thanks largely to the popularity of its Easi-Own flexible consumer financing plans.

“Our rebranding efforts have been closely tied to our core product offering,” says dtr’s Managing Director, Mark Spring; “We aim to provide a friendly and fair service that helps our customers own the products we sell with the assistance of simple weekly payment plans.”

Mr Spring says sales for the September – November period were up 11 percent on the previous year.

He says the favourable result is the culmination of a considered and consistent effort to boost the profitability of the company following a management buy-out in November 2006.

dtr offers a wide range of products including audio visual, whiteware, furniture, fitness equipment, mobiles, computers and gaming, with brands like Sony, Panasonic, LG, Simpson, Vodafone, Playstation and Sleepyhead, among others.
