And compared to last week the index showed an increase of 1.8%, the weekly trend for this time of year is usually negative as shoppers assess the impact of their seasonally accumulated debt and their repayments, however, would be shoppers earlier in the year were impacted by the cold snap, delaying hitting the shops to this week and last.
- The Department Store Index also reported a week-on-week increase of 1.2%, and compared to the same week last year the sector showed a positive growth of 2.0%. Now that temperatures are rising shopping seems to be back on the agenda for most consumers and retailers will be looking to Valentine's merchandise and associated spending to sustain and hopefully build on this week's rise.
