Which company had £100,000 flowing through the tills every minute on the day after Christmas?

by on January 16, 2014

At Dixons, which is big seller of iPads, like-for-like sales in the UK&Ireland jumped 5pc over Christmas and in Europe sales rose 2pc, although there was also an 8pc drop in Greece. Group margins dropped 0.5pc. Sebastian James, chief executive, said trading from Boxing Day "took off like a rocket", with £100,000 flowing through the tills every minute on the day after Christmas alone.

So far the headlines have been dominated by retail's Christmas losers; today it is all about the winners. Ocado, Dixons, Argos, Homebase, Halfords and Primark have all reported strong sales over the period, in stark contrast to the dismal performance of some of the biggest names on the high street, including Marks & Spencer, Tesco and WM Morrisons.

The common - though not exclusive - theme is either strong online sales or big volumes of consumer electronics.
