E-sales jump at GUS

But how did Jungle do?

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

GUS, owner of Argos, is the latest UK high street retailer to report a good December quarter. The mass marketer also did well on the ecommerce front, today reporting Q3 sales of &163;48m, two-thirds up on the same period in 2000.

Unfortunately (for us), the company did not break-out revenues for separate businesses. It would have been interesting to see the impact that Jungle.com, its PC and electronics sub, suffered with the botched implementation of a new back-office ordering system. This resulted in a severe order backlog, and the honourable, if costly, decision of Jungle last month to turn away orders at the busiest time of year. ®
