UK retail business as usual

  Generally, retail sales in the UK displayed steady growth with the exception of 2009, when annual sales experienced a noticeable drop. In the following years, retail trade in the UK was able to deliver high-flying numbers, and is forecast to grow even larger by 2020.   

Holiday spending: industry’s best friend

  When we look at the monthly breakdown of retail sales value, an unmistakably clear picture of rigorous holiday spending greets us. December is the month when retail has its best days. This was particularly true in December 2018, when the sales value of retail in Great Britain was recorded at over 50 billion British pounds.
