Weather hits fashion sales

Like-for-like fashion sales dropped 2.79% year on year for the week to 1 April, as cold and damp weather continues to bite.

The result marked the third negative week in a row for fashion, according to the BDO High Street Sales Tracker.

Clothing was up 1.8% on the same week last year, but footwear sales plummeted by 13.4%.

BDO added that retailers will be hoping for improved weather to “reignite sales”.
