Sales at High Street retailer Next have had a big boost after an 11.4% increase from their Directory catalogue and internet business.
However, full-price sales at Next Retail fell 7.4%, and it said it remained “cautious” about its outlook, given the current consumer environment.
Next shares topped the FTSE 100 in early trading, rising more than 9.5%.
The company also confirmed it would pay a special quarterly dividend of 45p and said its second-quarter sales were better than expected after it improved its product ranges and made its website more user-friendly.
