THIS WEEK

UK RETAIL SALES REMAIN FLAT IN SEPTEMBER The latest figures from business lobby organisation CBI show retail sales figures for September were relatively unchanged when compared to the same period a year before, a trend that is expected to continue in October. In the CBI Distributive Trades Survey, 39 per cent of retailers said sales volumes rose when compared to September 2008, while 36 per cent claimed they fell, according to Retail Week. Asda COO Andy Clarke commented: “After such a difficult summer, it is encouraging to see signs that conditions in the retail sector are stabilising. However, with unemployment rising, wage growth low, and consumers building up their savings, spending is likely to remain subdued for some time.”
