Retail business events: West End sales
Retailers in London have managed to buck the national average with sales rising by 3.4 per cent in September, according to figures which may be of interest to people attending retail business events.
The New West End Company, which represents 600 retailers on Bond Street, Oxford Street and Regent Street, says that the West End managed to see sales grow by over three per cent when the rest of the UK saw sales rise by just 0.3 per cent.
It claims that the rise in London is down to the autumn/winter lines coming into stores, inbound international shopper spend and the performance of the evening economy; while Oxford Streetís High Street fashion week initiative also helped boost sales.
