Online sales growth strong in February as clothing sales rise


Online sales growth has stayed strong in February as lockdown shopping habits continued.

Online sales rose 69.5% year on year, according to the latest figures from the IMRG Capgemini Online Retail Sales Index, which tracks the online sales performance of more than 200 retailers.

Though this was lower than the all-time high of 74% growth in January, it was still well above the rolling three-, six- and 12-month averages of 57.1%, 42.5% and 42.7% growth year on year respectively.
