Growth slowed in Q4 2010, as retailers were impacted by weather
  • Non food is the worst hit, with growth of just 0.1% as out of town retailers particularly suffer
  • Food a priority, remaining resilient, with growth boosted to 3.9%
H1 sees volumes take a major hit
  • Overall sales growth in Q1 and Q2 will be driven by inflation, with all sectors facing pricing pressures
  • Consumers will cut back on volumes as a result – as already tight budgets cannot be stretched to cover price increases
Non food growth to fall into negative territory in Q1 2011
  • After three quarters of positive growth non food expenditure will fall 0.4% in Q1, hit by low consumer confidence and consumers reigning in discretionary spending
  • Food keeps Q1 growth in positive territory, through this is mainly driven by inflation
