Total Online Retail Sales rose by 26.4 per cent in October, year-on-year, non-seasonally adjusted, compared with growth of 11.6 per cent in October 2015. This was the strongest online growth since the series began in July 2011. October’s robust performance was driven by strong performances in all categories particularly Food and Household Goods. Non-Store, which includes mail order and catalogues, also saw strong growth of 32.0 per cent. This was marginally down on September’s growth of 34.9 per cent which was the highest growth in this category since September 2013.
