Strong sales resulted from ensuring sector leading product availability, as well as continued investment in staff and training. Passing our 100th store opening was a significant milestone and we now have branches from Scotland to Cornwall and Wales to East Anglia. Despite the increased footprint, we firmly remain a local company wherever we operate and are pleased to have made meaningful contributions to the communities we serve, which is at the heart of the way MKM operates.”
