Retail Sales Volumes Recovering

Retail Sales Including Motors

The CSO has just released provisional retail data for April. Sales volumes are up over 7% compared with March but off 2020 highs seen last year in July-October. However, much of this monthly increase is associated with Motor sales. If these are stripped out, there is a decline of around 4% in sales volume from March 2021. Even so, this figure is still up over 25% on April lows in 2020 during the earlier part of the Covid pandemic. Hopefully, overall, the recovery continues.
