It may be nuclear winter on the UK high street but some chains are still frolicking in the sunlit uplands. Ted Baker said today that revenue rose 11.3% (yes, you read that right) in the 19 weeks to June 11 with retail sales up 12.7% (or 10.3% when currency exchange volatility is factored-out). Wow.
