In local currency the increase amounted to 4 per cent, like-for-like 2 per cent. Online sales have risen by 51 per cent.

Clas Ohlson currently still has four locations in Germany. These are expected to be closed by the end of the financial year, i.e. by the end of April. The company will also be withdrawing from Great Britain by then. There are currently still five stores there. Other than in Sweden, Norway and Finland, they only want to be active still in the online business.
