London’s West End has continued to out perform national retail sales according to new figures from New West End Company, the organisation which represents retailers on Bond Street, Oxford Street and Regent Street.
In September, sales in the area were 3.4% higher than the year before. The national figure is just 0.3%.
The New West End Company says the better than national performance was due to the arrival of Autumn/Winter lines in stores, spending by tourists and “the performance of the evening economy”.
Jace Tyrrell said retailers were “working hard to ensure a strong stock mix to draw in domestic shoppers and inbound visitors.”
