The young fashion chain Select has revealed barnstorming trading over Christmas and vowed to open up to 40 new stores this year.
Its chief executive, Cafer Mahiroglu, said the 135-store retailer has “emerged as an ongoing success story in the battered high street retail market”. Select’s like-for-like sales jumped by 13 per cent over the four weeks to 29 December.
Mr Mahiroglu said: “I think people are looking for value for money, and with our average selling price of £7.35 this has brought increased footfall into our stores.”
