Summary

Retail sales rose by 3.2 per cent in October according to the Retail Economics Retail Sales Index (value, non-seasonally adjusted and excluding fuel). This is the strongest sales growth since November 2014 when sales rose 5.8 per cent — boosted by Black Friday.

The three month rolling average, which provides a more accurate underlying trend, showed sales rose by 1.9 per cent — ahead of the 12-month average of 1.4 per cent.

Despite the EU Referendum result, consumer spending has been resilient in the face of ongoing uncertainty. Total Non-Food was up 3.8 per cent, driven by strong performances of Electricals (+5.8 per cent), Clothing (+3.1 per cent) and Footwear (+3.6 per cent) which rose on last year’s levels.
