CEO Lee Bird’s comments on Tuesday

According to CEO Lee Bird:

“Longer term, I couldn’t be more excited about our ability to expand our market share in a large, highly fragmented and growing industry. We have the potential to grow our store base nearly three times larger, and our real estate opportunities are only getting stronger. We also believe we can drive revenue per store significantly higher through both our in-store and omnichannel strategies. With our unique, value-oriented offering, talented team members, and growing loyalty base, we can be the home décor retailer of choice for years to come.”

At Home Group was reported more than 1.5% up in after-hours trading on Tuesday. On a year to date basis, the stock is now close to 250% up. At the time of writing, At Home Group has a market capitalisation of £1.18 billion.
