BDO High Street Sales Tracker

Like-for-like sales figures for the week ending Sunday, November 29

Non-Fashion+4.6%
Fashion+8.8%
Homewares+1.6%
Non-store+47%

  • Non-fashion After recent poor weeks, non-fashion returned to positive territory with luxury and leisure goods selling well. In other categories results were mixed as some stores struggled with competition from department stores.

  • Fashion Fashion retailers had an excellent week as sales surged. Colder weather helped outerwear and footwear sales.

  • Homewares Although modest in comparison to the other sectors, homewares sales increased for a second week. Textile, DIY and furniture sales were all strong.

  • Non-store (online, mail order) Sales soared for a second week in a row, with some stores seeing sales more than double, helped by the Christmas build-up.
