The Brown Thomas and Arnotts group took a wide range of steps to mitigate the impact of Covid-19 restrictions last year, including agreeing a new €22m facility with parent company Selfridges, which remains undrawn. Other measures included a restructuring programme, availing of Government supports and pushing out investment plans. The pandemic was very challenging for retail but that the company had been well-positioned going into 2020, with revenue at both Brown Thomas and Arnotts up 5% in the 12 months to February of that year.
