The figures come after the retailer announced plans to continue opening new stores despite the pandemic accelerating the transition to online.

However, he added that the change “presents challenges for the continued viability of some store locations”.

CEO Sanjay Vadera said: “Stores will always play an important role, providing complementary expertise and sensory experience to our online offering.

“But there is no doubt that our performance is fueled by the investments we have made in digital, as our customers choose how and when they shop with us on their terms.

“That’s why we’ve brought the in-store experience online. Along with our e-commerce website that allows customers to virtually ‘match’ their favorite scent and speak to one of our fragrance experts in real time, we are also connecting with our customers in new and exciting ways.
