Fashion holds on as high street sales fall

Fashion sales defied a drop in overall high street sales last week, rising 0.91% against a 5.12% drop across the high street as a whole.

The incoming autumnal weather impacted footfall across the country for the week ending 24 September, leading to the second consecutive week of overall decline, according to the BDO weekly High Street Sales Tracker.

While fashion like-for-like sales were up compared to the same week last year, when fashion sales fell by 8.06%, the picture is far from rosy – with 51% of respondents reporting negative like for like sales.
