UK Retail Briefing - January 2018
"Christmas was OK, but no better than that. Food retailers outperformed non-food retailers and online grew strongly. So far we have had good figures from the leading food retailers, Aldi and Lidl, John Lewis and a handful of smaller clothing retailers. We have had poor figures from Debenhams and bad ones from House of Fraser and M&S. We think that 2018 will be a tough year for retailers."
