The article focuses on the financial performance of Ultimate Destinations in England. The store has seen a 97% year-on-year increase in sales in the first two months of 2009. The shop has been refitted over the last two years to reflect a focus on the higher end of the market and to complement the other quality specialist shops in the local area. Rather than selling holidays of all kinds, the agency now concentrates on four and five-star holidays, long haul and luxury cruises.
