Electricals Sales

Electricals sales fell 0.00% YoY in November, but remained marginally above (+0.00%) the same period in 2019 pre-pandemic, according to the Retail Economics Retail Sales Index.

The sector continues to underperform as a result of its stellar performances in 2020, when remote working and home entertainment became the norm.

Electricals has also been hit hard by supply chain issues causing manufacturing delays and problems with stock availability.

Online sales of Electricals were down 0.00% YoY in November.

Black Friday performance

Retail Economics research shows that only 0.00 in five shoppers took advantage of Black Friday this year, compared to 0.00% of shoppers last year.

Retailers struggled to offer the same level of discounts as years gone by, as stock issues and supply-side cost pressures meant fewer deals could be passed onto consumers.

Google search data shows that discounts were spread out over a longer period than ever before, as the Black Friday event becomes a month-long affair in the UK.
