BDO High Street Sales Tracker
Like-for-like sales figures for the week ending January 16, 2011
Non-fashion just about reached positive territory, aided by some strong results across luxury. Most other categories struggled.
The two-week positive momentum across fashion slowed, reflecting reduced promotional activity and near normal weather conditions. The tail end of new year promotions helped supplement some positive movements.
Homewares delivered a strong set of results, albeit flattered by weak comparisons, with sales up in most areas.
Non-store (mail order, online)
Non-store sales increased resoundingly, with strong sales reported across fashion.
