Retail Sales Just Keep Getting Worse

Recommended Posts


High Street sales have made their weakest start to the year for more than a decade, according to figures from the British Retail Consortium (BRC).
After strong growth in the run-up to Christmas, the BRC said stores now faced the reality of a "tough market".
The Bank of England's rate-setting committee meets later this week, but most analysts are expecting UK interest rates to remain on hold at 4.5%.
Despite calls for a rate cut from retailers, analysts say the Bank will also be keeping its eye on the recent signs of a recovery in the housing market and possible inflationary pressures from high oil prices.
