Christmas Shopping Habits - UK - February 2013
“Christmas 2012 could have been a lot worse, but consumer confidence picked up through the year and that was enough for consumers to spend more this year than last, in spite of a very demanding comparative from 2011. With a modest recovery in the economy in 2013 and continuing improvement in confidence, we expect to see further growth in retail sales through the year and, crucially, next Christmas as well.”
– Richard Perks, Director of Retail Research
