Hamburg, Germany, 19 October 2021 – Following a first half-year that suffered from the coronavirus pandemic (–23.4% compared with the first half-year of 2020), the Bijou Brigitte Group is pleased to announce that this third quarter has exceeded expectations. The gradual relaxation of coronavirus restrictions and improved consumer sentiment in general contributed to this development.
According to preliminary figures, the Bijou Brigitte Group generated sales of EUR 144.5 million in the first nine months of the current year. This represents a decline of 5.9% compared to the same period of the previous year (30 September 2020: EUR 153.5 million). 
As of 30 September 2021, the store network comprised 933 stores (31 December 2020: 990 stores). At the close of 2021, the number of stores in the Bijou Brigitte Group will be lower than in the previous year.
If the fourth quarter continues without external disturbances, yearly sales could slightly exceed last year’s level.
