December was the season for retail sales slump

There were some surprises in store from this morning’s Retail Sales Statistics, which delivered the unexpected gift of a sales slowdown. Phil Mullis, Head of Retail and Wholesale and Partner at Wilkins Kennedy, commented: “It came as a surprise that December’s retail sales were slower than expected – going against many predictions from retail industry experts.
“However, looking back at last year’s figures, it looked to be a similar story. Perhaps it is the influence of event retailing in the run up to Christmas, such as Black Friday and Cyber Monday. If these fall in November then there is a chance that this could have an impact on quantity bought in the month of December. Retailers have worked hard to weather the storm following recent events."
