Christmas shopping figures 'beginning to improve'

After a slow build-up, Christmas shopping on the high street and retail centres is really starting to take off this year, according to the latest figures.

The British Retail Consortium said that the media hype around Mega Monday – the record day for online sales in the UK – and a cold start to December had previously kept a lot of shoppers indoors, but now they are beginning to venture out once more.

Director general of the group Steven Robertson stated that although it is disappointing to see the numbers for the week commencing December 3rd down in year on year terms, they are picking up.

He explained that last week saw a 2.3 per cent increase on the previous one.

"Though the increase is a baby step rather than a big leap, it at least demonstrates that momentum is building slowly but surely as we get into the final fortnight before Christmas," Mr Robertson added.

Aaron Wallis have a dedicated retail sales team filling sales positions across a wide spectrum of the retail industry. Offering a 12 month rebate scheme, Aaron Wallis provide a retail recruitment service that is second to none.
