Kathmandu’s cool sales
The company recorded sales of $NZ93 million ($A86.58 million) in the three months to April 27, up 3.6 per cent from the same period a year ago.
Same store sales were down 0.6 per cent compared to a year ago, indicating sales growth was driven by higher store numbers.
The company said it had a strong trading performance during its Easter sale promotion, boosted by the later timing of Easter and the change to cooler weather in Australian and New Zealand.
