Greetings cards and gift retailer Card Factory has plenty to celebrate after its pre-tax profits almost doubled in a year.
The retailer recorded a pre-tax profit of £83.7 million for the year ending January 31, compared to £42.7 million at the end of the previous 12 months.
Online, sales grew 22.8% compared to the previous year after the retailer revamped and relaunched its website. 'Getting Personal', its online store for personalised gifts, also saw sales surge by 17.5%.
Card Factory currently has 814 stores across the UK and opened 50 new shops in the last financial year.
