LONDON (Reuters) – British retailer Dixons Carphone (LON:) reported a rise in sales of electricals over Christmas as a strong online performance more than offset the closure of stores during COVID-19 lockdowns.

Like-for-like sales of electricals increased 11% in the 10 weeks to Jan. 9, said the group, which trades as Currys PC World and Carphone Warehouse in the UK.

Dixons Carphone forecast full year 2020-21 profits in line with market expectations despite current store closures.
