Homewares chain Dunelm wasn't hit by the cold weather as sales rose 15% on the back of demand for duvets and soft furnishings.
Takings of £177.8m for the 13 weeks to the end of March included growth of 5.2% when new store openings are stripped out. The later end to its winter sale and an earlier Easter than in 2012 also helped.
