Online retailer BuyMobilePhones.net has increased its staff count and floor space by 50 per cent after hitting a record number of retail sales last month.
Retail sales from the Derbyshire-based retailer hit £4 million last month for the first time, nearly double it sales during the same period a year ago. It said that December is also heading for a record, already equalling 2008 totals mid-month.
To cater for the increase in sales, the company has increased its staff count from 40 to 60 and expanded its floor space by 50 per cent by moving its customer services into a building next door.
BuyMobilePhones.net managing director Paul Sisson said: “We’ve built up momentum over the year. There are good deals on our website and our product range has increased considerably.
“Last year sales started to trail off around December 2 but that doesn’t seem to be happening this time. Last Monday (December 7) was our busiest ever day and we’re expecting this great momentum to carry on into 2010.”
