Scottish Spend Less When Shopping

According to new research carried out by the Scottish Retail Consortium Scots shopped more than their counterparts in England, Wales and Northern Ireland however they also spend less when shopping.

The retail group carried out a survey which found that between May and July the footfall in Scottish shops had risen 0.2% therefore it was higher than the UK average which was 1% down on the Quarter.

Richard Dodd, spokesman for the Scottish Retail Consortium, said: “Sales were up but by less than inflation so actually people were buying less stuff than twelve months ago even though slightly more of them were going out shopping.”
