Independents predict strongest Mother’s Day trading in over two years
Trading for this year’s Mother’s Day could be the strongest in over two years.
According to the British Independent Retailers Association, the good news comes as retailers begin to bounce back after the lifting of Covid-19 restrictions earlier this year.
The organisation is also predicting that this will be the strongest trading period of the year so far as shoppers hit the high streets without the impact of lockdowns or further Covid-19 restrictions, which have limited trading since 2020.
Bira’s chief executive Andrew Goodacre said: “For the first time in two years, people can look forward to a more normal Mother’s Day on the 27 March.
“As we leave winter behind, from a retailing perspective Mother’s Day is one of the first retail opportunities of the year, and this year people can celebrate the occasion in a more normal way.”
He added: “I do not doubt that independents will be offering quality products and we urge shoppers to look local when considering buying gifts for loved ones.”
