Clothing sales in the UK are at all-time high since the pandemic

Christmas Day, the biggest Christian holiday, is more than a month away. But in the meantime, shopping in the UK has increased. According to the country’s Office for National Statistics (ONS), the country’s trade growth rate in October was 0.6 percent. However, there was no growth in commodity sales in the country in September.

According to ONS, clothing sales have now peaked since the onset of the epidemic. They also said that shopping in old clothing stores has increased. The ONS also said that sales were now only 0.5 percent lower than at the time of the epidemic. Many shopkeepers say the situation is improving as pre-Christmas shopping picks up speed. The things that people are buying or pre-ordering before the big day are toys, clothes, shoes etc.

Grant Fitzgerald, chief economist at ONS, said: Although overall sales are higher than during the pre-epidemic period, the market is showing a mixed picture.

Meanwhile, fuel sales have fallen sharply due to rising fuel prices. Online sales and food sales have also declined. Helen Dickinson, chief executive of the British Retail Consortium, said suppliers were working hard to keep the supply chain moving. The traders think that if they can catch the Christmas business, they will be able to overcome many losses. And the demand is expected to be strong in the next one month.

As the economy began to recover, so did the debt of the British government. In October, the government’s debt stood at ৮৮ 1.7 billion. 200 million less than the same period last year. The British government has borrowed heavily to deal with the epidemic, which at one point even surpassed British GDP.
