WOLF & BADGER CONTINUES TO GROW REVENUE WITH ITS TECHNOLOGY-LED BUSINESS MODEL AND GLOBAL REACH, DESPITE A TURBULENT 2020 FOR RETAIL

LONDON, Jan. 19, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- JANUARY 2020: A consistent rise in overall global sales and strong performance from its award winning online platform secured Wolf & Badger another year of growing full-year revenues and record sales figures in 2020. Despite its Kings Cross flagship in London and New York City location temporarily closing for prolonged periods throughout the year due to the COVID-19 pandemic the retailer expects overall revenue growth of 79.1%.

With 253,902 items sold and 14.7m visitors to the online retail platform last year, 109,779 of which were new customers, the innovative multi-channel retailer achieved an increase in online sales of 92%. The business generated £19.1m / $26.1m in online sales in 2020.

Mirroring the climate, categories that performed well include lingerie and nightwear, up 625% compared to 2019 and blankets and throws which drove 556% more sales revenue than the previous year. 81 of the designers stocked on Wolf & Badger diversified their ranges to include face coverings; the majority of which were created using material offcuts to further eliminate waste in line with their sustainable credentials. A total of 9,786 face masks were sold during 2020.

Active brands utilising Wolf & Badger to reach a global customer base  reached a record high in the year, increasing by 93.6% from 564 in December 2019 to 1,092 in December 2020. New brands joining the platform have come from 56 different countries across the globe, including Mexico, Norway, Ecuador, Ghana and Lebanon, many of which were experiencing disruption from other distribution channels.

To support an increased global focus, the business successfully launched further internationalisation capabilities to its ever-growing online platform in May. The e-commerce site now facilitates multi-currency support along with homogenised size variant management to seamlessly serve customers worldwide. Further, through its partnership with DHL and despite Brexit, the business now also provides duties and taxes inclusive shipping for all customers in the UK, EU, Australia, US & Canada regardless of where in the world each supplier is based. This has eased the purchase journey for consumers, and further enabled smaller brands to seamlessly sell cross-border hassle-free. In turn, this has enabled Wolf & Badger to grow significantly in new markets resulting in US sales up 144%, Australian sales up 1,048% and Canadian sales up 414%, vs 2019. Overall, international customers accounted for 46% of sales i! n 2020. < /p>
