Seasonal Shopping (Spring/Summer) - UK - October 2018
“The UK retail sector was boosted by a number of significant events during the 2018 spring and summer months. Not only did retailers benefit from the usual occasions like Easter, but The Royal Wedding and England’s FIFA World Cup performance gave consumers even more reasons to celebrate and spend. As a result, retail sales growth was strong, which could make 2019 more challenging as retailers will be up against tough comparatives.”
– Samantha Dover, Senior Retail Analyst
