British Cold Snap Slows High-Street Sales Growth, PA Reports

The cold snap slowed retail sales growth on British shopping streets, with the category of non-fashion gifts performing the worst during November, the Press Association reported.

In addition, a 2.8 percent increase in fashion sales was less than in the same period a year earlier, according to the BDO High Street Sales Tracker, the news agency said. Online purchases grew 28 percent, compared with 39 percent in 2009.

Homeware, the only area that exceeded expectations, grew 3.6 percent as consumers ordered big-ticket items ahead of January’s increase in sales tax, the Press Association said.
