BRC-KPMG Retail Sales Monitor November 2010

Weather leaves Christmas delicately poised

GENERAL MERCHANDISE

BRC-KPMG Retail Sales Monitor November 2010

UK retail sales values were up 0.7% on a like-for-like basis from November 2009. On a total basis, sales were up 2.8% against a 4.1% increase in November 2009.

Food sales growth rose a little further, though partly reflecting food inflation. Clothing and footwear also had a better month, helped by colder weather. Homewares slowed, showing a larger year-on-year decline than in October, sales were still often deal-driven, with big-ticket items affected by consumer uncertainty over job cuts and income prospects.

Non-food non-store (internet, mail-order and phone sales) sales growth picked up in November after slowing in October. Sales were 17.6% higher than a year ago, against a 16.9% increase in November 2009.
