Fashion retailers hit by lower sales as temperatures near record

Good weather in September 2016, the second-warmest since 1910 according to Met Office data, may have hurt high street sales at fashion retailers.

Consultancy BDO said high street sales declined 2.8% in the four weeks to 30 September with apparel sales the worst hit, down around 5.9%.

UK market leader Next (NXT) and women’s value fashion specialist Bonmarche (BON) both flagged tough trading conditions in recent weeks.
