Rox turnover flat in 2019 financial year ahead of significant store openings


Rox (UK) Limited has reported sales of £14.9 million for the financial year ended March 31, 2019; virtually unchanged from the prior year.

Gross profit margin improved slightly but, because of an additional £168,000 of “other operating income” in the 2018 financial year, operating and profit slipped from £301,352 to £134,614.


Co-managing director Kieran Keogh said in a note accompanying the financial results that all stores had positive like-for-like growth in 2018/19, except for Aberdeen and Braehead (a shopping centre in Glasgow).

The Braehead store was closed in June, after the end of the financial year.

Like-for-like sales at the remaining stores in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Leeds and Newcastle were up by 3.2%.

The group’s watch business also delivered like-for-like sales growth from a portfolio that includes Audemars Piguet, Hublot, Chopard, TAG Heuer and Zenith.

“Investment continued to be made to provide our customers with an extraordinary shopping experience within a luxury environment supported by well-trained, professional staff. Continued investment has been made in the website and in store events,” Mr Keogh describes.

Since the end of the 2018/19 financial year, Rox has opened a new stores in Liverpool One (pictured top), anchored by Hublot, and in Glasgow’s Argyll Arcade, where its original flagship showroom is also located.
