Fashion & Accessories Sales Up 17%

According to the Australian Retail Index, Fashion & Accessories retail sales rebounded to show positive growth of over 17% last week, compared to the week prior. Once again, this mirrors similar growth in this sector for the same week last year, and can potentially be attributed to the additional full day of trading provided to consumers over the Queen’s Birthday long weekend. Overall Retail Sales improved by a promising 3.88% with growth in all sectors other than ‘Other General Retail’, clawing back some of the losses seen after the release of the Federal Budget.
