Massey to retire as DFS enjoys growth

jonmasseyJon Massey, DFS chief operating officer is to retire from the upholstery retailer this autumn after 27 years at the chain.

Massey, 66, will remain as advisor to the company. He joined in 1988 after 16 years at Allied Carpets and DFS said it wanted to ‘record its sincere appreciation of his 27 years' distinguished service to DFS’.
His announcement came as DFS said sales for the 50 week period to 18 July were up 7% on 2014.
Second half sales are 4% higher, reflecting stronger comparative sales and that 2104 was a 53 week year.
Sofa Workshop and Dwell accounted for about a seventh of the growth.
After the success of its trial store in the Netherlands, it plans to open a further two in the coming year.
