Despite a healthy pick-up in sales in May, consumers held back on spending ahead of the EU Referendum. Retail sales rose by 0.7 per cent year-on-year (non-seasonally adjusted) in June, according to the Retail Economics Retail Sales Index, falling on the previous month’s increase of 2.6 per cent. Clothing and Footwear continued to falter and reported sales declining by 6.8 per cent and 3.3 per cent, respectively. Electricals continued to hold up well and saw growth of 5.9 per cent in June, year-on-year. Furniture and Flooring also performed strongly with sales growth of 5.2 per cent.
