28 Aug 2014 16:04
The volume of retail sales increased by just over 8% in the month of July with a 5.5% lift in the value of sales.
On an annual basis, the rate of increase was 8.6% in volume and 5.9% in value.
However, if the motor trade is excluded, the volume of sales was down by 0.7% in the month, but an increase of just over 3% was registered in the annual figures.
Unsurprisingly, the sector with the largest monthly increase was the motor trade where volumes were up by 36%.
Books and stationery and electrical goods also recorded increases.
