Like-for-like fashion sales increased 8.4% in the week to 4 November as colder weather and discounting tempted shoppers to spend, the latest BDO High Street Sales Tracker has shown.
It was the third consecutive week of growth for total like-for-like fashion sales, and the best figures since early July 2018.
In-store sales were up 3.5% on last year, as cooler temperatures boosted sales of seasonal styles.
Total non-store like-for-like sales were up 28.9%, marking the best week for non-store like-for-likes since the start of the year.
Footfall, however, was down 1.3%.
