Clothing Announced As Best Performing Retail Category in May

The British Retail Consortium and KPMG have announced that UK retail sales were up by 0.5% on a like-for-like basis from May 2013.

Clothing was the best performing category which reported its highest growth since December 2011.

Helen Dickinson, Director General, British Retail Consortium, said: "Customers took advantage of great summer fashion ranges and clothing sales had their best results since December 2011, performing better than any other category. There is also strong momentum in big ticket sales such as consoles and televisions as customers feel confident enough in the economy to make purchases that had been on hold, waiting for economic recovery.”
