Gear4music in tune with sales up 46%

Strong growth in the UK and Europe has seen retailer Gear4music’s sales rise 46%. The group’s total sales reached £35.5m in the 12 months to February as it said strong European sales growth during 2016 was in part driven by competitive pricing.

More than 190,000 new customers were added in the period, while following a successful trial over Christmas, seven days a week dispatch and delivery has been continued across a large range of products, and continues to drive sales volumes and positive customer feedback, the business said.

Gear4music’s chief executive, Andrew Wass, said: “We have been extremely pleased with the trading performance of Gear4music over the year. It’s been a pivotal 12 months for the business as we’ve been able to deliver strong growth in both the UK and Europe, whilst completing our IPO.”
