Retail sales growth slowed in November as tighter government restrictions forced shoppers online.
Total retail sales increased 0.9% year on year compared with a 0.9% decline in November 2019, according to the BRC-KPMG retail sales monitor.
This was below the three-month average growth of 3.9% and above the 12-month average decline of 0.3%.
Excluding temporarily closed stores but including online, retail sales also improved by 7.7% on a like-for-like basis compared with November last year, when they had decreased 1.3% from 2018.
