BRITAIN: Poor weather affects retail sales of clothing rather than any impact from #Brexit to #Leave vote after they suffered their sharpest monthly fall in six months in June – @AceFinanceNews

#AceFinanceNews – July.21: UK weather affects retail sales not #Brexit to #Leave EU

Retailers had not reported any anecdotal evidence of the unexpected result of the June 23 referendum affecting sales during the five-week period which ended July 2, the Office for National Statistics said.

While department stores got a boost from sales around the Euro 2016 football tournament and the Queen’s 90th birthday, clothing stores suffered another poor month after unusually changeable weather.

Thursday’s figures were the first official data which might potentially have shed light on how demand was affected by the referendum, after other measures painted a mixed picture of consumer demand.
