DJs Near-Doubles Online Sales
But the report did not give any dollar figures for the online sales, or indicate what proportion of total sales they contributed.
It did say total sales revenue for the quarter was $407.2 million, up just 4.1 percent.
In a previous report (CDN, Mar. 20), DJs CEO Paul Zahra said rapid growth online was due to a number of factors including new services such as “click & collect” and an online gift registry, as well as introduction of shoppable videos, image zoom, ratings and reviews; and a bigger range of products, with 120,000 now available online.
DJs appears set to be acquired by Woolworths of South Africa, which is unrelated to the Australian Woolworths supermarket and liquor chain. The Investment Review Board this week revealed it had no objection to the takeover, and the DJs board is recommending that shareholders accept the offer at a meeting in June.
