Shoes please, no booze

Tuesday, September 22nd, 2009

Retail research group IMRG have reported online shopping stats for August. It seems that the overall spend for the month slipped by 10%.

Total online sales dropped to £3.8bn (which was still 16% higher than in August 2008). Alcohol and lingerie sales were down, but footwear sales were up.

The reason? Well I guess some of it’s seasonal and some of it’s the recession (after all unemployment is still rising). Wonder what’ll happen at Christmas? Crystal ball anyone?
