Bedroom Beds Sofa Beds. Over the last month we have rebuilt stock ahead of the crucial Christmas trading period. Consequently, we are now delivering and communicating a more relevant offer. We have moved to a more dynamic pricing model, where we closely monitor the activity of our competitors, to ensure we are always delivering the value that is synonymous with the Smiths City Brand. We have also carefully managed our range and our inventory. Retail sales rose 3.
It has demonstrated the important role that the internet plays in allowing customers to compare products and prices across the market and the role of the online site as a portal for customer fulfilment. It also won some large contracts in the half-year. We are encouraged by the sales growth we have seen in our Auckland stores, which are now gaining some traction as they benefit from new management and more localised marketing support.
We are steadily building recognition in the appliance categories in the region and the challenge is now to more strongly establish our credentials in the furniture category. We are intensely focussed on achieving success and we are now exploring how to move these stores more rapidly into the black.
In the first half of the year we made a start on our investment programme with a refresh of our two Christchurch stores. We also began an upgrade of our national management information systems. This investment includes training as well as enhancing the terms of employment through initiatives such as ensuring all employees are paid at least the equivalent of the living wage.
