20/08/2008

The latest e-retail sales index from IMRG and Capgemini shows that online retail grew 11.3% in July from the previous month, writes vnunet.com. Total online sales for the month reached £4.8bn, equivalent to £79/person in the UK, as consumers avoided the rain and used the internet to look for deals and save money. Data from the British Retail Consortium shows that high street sales were down 0.9% during the same period. Clothing, footwear and accessories was the fastest growing online category in July, rising 22.8%.
The figures echoed the latest Experian National Retail FootFall Index which predicts that the next twelve months will be the slowest period for retailers since the early 1990s.
