Total sales growth for retailers drops to zero last month for
the first time since 2008
Retailers experienced their
worst Christmas for 10 years last month as shops were hit by
Brexit worries and a dramatic fall in consumer confidence.
Total sales growth dropped to zero in December for the first
time since 2008, with all areas of the high street hit by a fall in
sales except food, which benefited from intense competition among
the major supermarket chains.
