Festive Trading 2013-14 | Christmas Sales Report

  1. 1. Christmas Sales Report 16 January 2014 FSP RETAIL BUSINESS CONSULTANTS
  2. 2. Comment In our first Christmas commentary, we noted that consumer trust probably played a big part this year in the fortunes of John Lewis et al. However, it’s not just longevity that cultivates such trust, some of the well-known but comparatively more recent fascias on the high street – such as Boux Avenue, Radley, Mountain Warehouse, Lush, The Fragrance Shop and Joules - have posted some very positive like-for-likes, whilst those with much longer retailing history, like M&S, Tesco, Morrisons and Mothercare have all foundered this Christmas. Grocery, as a category, has fared worst, with the 7 retailers reporting like-for-likes not averaging anything positive. Indeed, if it weren’t for the nation’s love of chocolate, the category would be even more in the doldrums. Clothing & Footwear is the best performing category, with all bar Mothercare reporting positive like-for-likes. Please see the individual categories for a comprehensive view of trading reported so far. Please note, the like-for-like data in some categories remains limited until more retailers report: Clothing & Footwear Personal Food & Beverage* Household Leisure Department Stores Grocery 2011/12 2012/13 2013/14 12 8 10 9 5 4 2 8 3 12 7 5 5 6 5 8 5 6 7 16 7 2 FSP Christmas Sales Report – 16 January 2014 FSP RETAIL BUSINESS CONSULTANTS

  4. 4. Christmas Trading and Administrations It is still the case that FSP’s retailer database shows no retail casualties over the festive period. Tie Rack, although not a Christmas casualty, finally reached the point of a CVA on nd January 2 with which the creditors are not happy. The number of retailers recorded on SnapShop entering administration in each of the past few years is: 2013 – 43 2012 – 44 2011 – 57 2010 – 42 2009 – 93 2008 – 56 4 FSP Christmas Sales Report – 16 January 2014 FSP RETAIL BUSINESS CONSULTANTS
  5. 5. 3 Year Comparison Where retailers report a similar period (and for the same part of the group) year-on-year, FSP compares the like-for-like trading each year. More retailers will be added in the next report. 5 FSP Christmas Sales Report – 16 January 2014 FSP RETAIL BUSINESS CONSULTANTS

  9. 9. Online Sales FSP Christmas Sales Report Methodology FSP seeks to gain an accurate review of the Christmas period, hence the period end date must be at least Christmas Eve and no later than the end of January; the period must be 13 weeks or less. Online Sales are always shown as Total changes. Graphs are ranked in order, highest to lowest, first by Like-for-Like change, then by Total change www.fspretail.com FSP has gone to its best efforts to ensure this data is correct but the author reserves the right not to be responsible for the accuracy of information provided. 9 FSP Christmas Sales Report – 16 January 2014 FSP RETAIL BUSINESS CONSULTANTS
