UK online sales experienced strong growth in March

Thursday 3 May 2018 | 02:30 PM CET

The Office for National Statistic’s Retail Sales shows, in a report, that UK online sales increased by 13.3% in March, mainly due to bad weather keeping shoppers inside.  

Figures from retail trade association the IMRG found an 18.9% rise in online sales. That’s well ahead of the three month trend of 15.4% growth, and 12-month trend of 12.8% growth.

IMRG put the sales rise down to factors including the snowstorms dubbed the ‘beast from the East’ and the early Easter bank holiday weekend – which led to a 27% spike in sales in the last week of the month.
