Bad weather and an early Easter has seen sales dip below average when compared to previous years, according to the March 2016 Retail Sales statistics, released today. Retailers were no doubt banking on the early fall of Mother’s Day and Easter holidays for a chance to pull through a disappointing start to 2016. But, whilst the changeable weather has kept the ‘Spring’ from the high street’s step, customers are still choosing to shop online. Phil Mullis, Partner and Head of Retail and Wholesale at top-20 UK accountancy firm, Wilkins Kennedy, commented: “The continuing war on price has seen volumes of sales increase, but that’s only because we buy more and spend the same."
