BDO High Street Sales Tracker
Like-for-like sales figures for the week ending Sunday, December 5, 2010
With the exception of stores focusing on outdoor goods, non-fashion takings were down pretty much across the board.
Fashion retailers’ sales tumbled with the weather the principal contributing factor to these lower results. Although cold weather purchases were much in demand, most stores posted negative result.
Takings for homewares decreased by double-digit levels. Retailers of furniture witnessed the steepest falls, offsetting recent gains.
Non-store (mail order, online)
Sales made through non-store channels benefited from the snow forcing consumers to stay at home and shop online.
