Internet retail in the UK was up 38% in the first half of 2008 as consumers headed online to go shopping, writes The Guardian. According to the IMRG-Capgemini online sales index £26.5bn was spent online during the period, equivalent to 17p in every £1 spent by British shoppers. Online spending on clothing and footwear showed the highest growth with sales in March up 31% year-on-year.
IMRG predicts that online could take 50% of all UK retail spend within the next five years.
