Don’t buy Dunelm shares, instead do some fundamental research and visit a local store

It is about eight hundred days since I last wrote about Dunelm Group (DNLM), “the UK's leading homewares retailer”. Back in mid-February 2020 I observed that “I am still not shopping there let alone buying the shares (1000p round number new support level?)”, which is kind of fascinating as the share price today is close to being at the aforementioned 1000p share price level. So what is going on?
