Retail Sales Down Across The Board

Retail Sales took a slight downwards dip last week with Overall Sales down by 3.67%. This was mirrored across the board, with all other categories recording a negative result of between -5.08% (Fashion & Accessories) and -2.83% (Other General Retail). These results are in stark contrast to the previous 2 weeks of sales where positive numbers were recorded in most categories.

The Australian Retail Index at www.australianretailindex.com.au provides week-by-week sales monitoring, across four key categories – fashion & accessories, furniture & homewares, sporting & recreational goods and other general retail.
