Crew Clothing triples profits in 2010

Crew Clothing, the casualwear retailer, more than tripled its profits last year after improving its product offer. The UK chain posted pre-tax profits of £2.56m for the year to 31 October.

Justin Hampshire, its finance director, said trading had rebounded since the snow disruption in December. "We certainly got it back after Christmas."

Crew Clothing, which is backed by ISIS Equity Partners, has 54 UK shops, three in Dubai and one in Germany.
