Catalogue retailer Great Universal Stores, the parent company of Jungle.com and Argos, has said its ecommerce sales have jumped threefold.

GUS's online revenues were £21 million for the three months to 30 June, more than three times the figure for the period a year earlier. But interestingly these figures don't include Jungle.com sales.

The ebiz sales were mainly down to online and digital TV business from the Argos and GUS home shopping catalogues.

But sales at the Argos Group, including Jungle.com, climbed 24 per cent over the same period last year. Excluding Argos Additions and Jungle, Argos' sales grew by 15 per cent, or by 12 per cent on a like-for-like basis. ®
