Store openings have driven first-half revenue growth at Russian retailer Magnit.

The firm said today (10 July) total sales increased by 32.5% in the first six months of the year.

Gains were primarily driven by space expansion, with 413 new stores opened during the period.

However, the group was also able to book same-store sales growth of 3.5% in the period, as Magnit attracted more customers to its existing stores and grew average basket size.
