Retail sales rise

Unseasonably warm weather failed to hit retail sales in October, including household goods stores. The warm weather had been expected to hit sales, but the volume of sales grew by 0.9% between 2-29 October, with online retailers enjoying the highest growth. The level of retail inflation, including fuel, was demonstrated with a 5.4% rise in the value of sales. Household goods stores saw sales volumes climb by 0.3%, supermarkets saw their first annual growth for a year and clothing and footwear stores saw a drop as shoppers deferred buying winter clothing, according to the Office for National Statistics.
