Bunnings sales grow by 25 per cent since July

For their DIY store chain Bunnings, the Australian Wesfarmers Group has reported a total sales growth of 25.2 per cent in the period from 1 July to 31 October 2020 compared to the same period last year. Comparable sales growth excluding stores impacted by government-mandated temporary closures in Melbourne and Auckland was 30.9 per cent. Online penetration achieved 3.8 per cent. The strong sales growth has continued in both consumer and commercial segments, says the company. Consumer sales remained particularly strong as customers spent more time undertaking projects around the home.
