DIY & Gardening sales declined by 0.00% YoY, against a 0.00% rise a year ago during the month-long circuit-breaker lockdown (5 November – 2 December). Compared with the same period in 2019 before the pandemic, sales were up by 0.00%.

Last November, sales growth was supported by the sector’s essential status, with shops allowed to remain open during the second national lockdown.

Online sales rose significantly as fears around the coronavirus remained elevated, accelerating by 0.00% YoY in November 2020, a record high at the time. Consumers reverted to previously ‘learnt’ behaviours from the first national lockdown, switching to lockdown buying habits.

Against this backdrop, sales growth fell to its lowest level since April 2020 with online sales of Household Goods plunging 0.00% YoY – a record low.

Demand was subdued as attentions were focussed elsewhere. The UK was also said to have faced its worst storm in 15 years, with Storm Arwen bringing unsettled weather over the last weekend of the trading period, quelling intentions to garden.

Overall retail spending rose by 0.00% YoY, supported by weaker concerns around Covid compared to a year ago, an open economy, increased socialising and the slow return to work, diverting spending away from homes.

Confidence improved amongst consumers, rising three points to 0.00 in November, buoyed by an increase in the major purchases index, indicating an intension to spend during the festive period.

Christmas spending was also pulled forward into November with 0.00% consumers shopping earlier than usual for Christmas presents this year, of which 0.00% said they were more prepared against the backdrop of disruptions within supply chains.
