Online spending grows in July


by David Allen

It could be a sign of the times but online spending in the UK has not been taking notice of the current financial climate, as figures recently released by IMRG and Capgemini confirm people are going online for their shopping.

The total sales figures for July were £4.8 billion, which is up by 11.3 per cent on the previous month, and works out around £79 per person in the UK.

But in contrast, the high streets are feeling the pressure as corresponding figures from the British Retail Consortium show that the high street sales have actually fallen by nearly one per cent.

It may come as a surprise that it is the clothing, shoes and fashion accessories sector that is the big winner, with a massive 22.8 per cent increase in online sales for this sector.
