Lowry Outlet Mall notches up record sales

Sales at Manchester's Lowry Outlet Mall were up by 11.5% like for like over the May half term period.

The Lowry Outlet Mall, which houses the likes of Marks & Spencer and Flannels, also experienced a 20% increase in footfall over the two week period.

Lowry Outlet Mall centre manager Robert Hallworth said: "This is a great set of figures and is a real boost to us following the figures released by the British Retail Consortium (BRC) which seem to reflect the negativity of the average consumer on a national level."

Hallworth added: "It is clear that people's disposable income is being squeezed and outlet shopping is growing in popularity as a result."

According to the BRC, UK retail like-for-like sales were 1.9% up in May.
