January shop prices were down 0.3% year on year, below the 0.4% decrease in prices recorded the previous month, according to the BRC-Nielsen Shop Price Index.
Shop prices across the month were lower than the 12-month flat average but above the six-month average decrease of 0.5%.
Non-food price deflation held steady month on month in January, down 1.5% year on year and a steeper rate of decline than the 12-month average of 1%.
