KARLSRUHE (dpa-AFX) – The drugstore company dm increased its sales by 6.5 percent in the past financial year (September 30) thanks to a strong push in online retail. Revenues grew to 12.3 billion euros (previous year: 11.5), announced the Karlsruhe-based company on Thursday. In Germany alone, dm generated more than nine billion euros – an increase of 5.8 percent. The drugstore traditionally does not provide any information on profit.
