Sales in London’s West End grew last month with retailers in the capital’s famous shopping destination reporting a 1.4% year-on-year increase.
The figures have been published today by the New West End Company which represents over 600 retailers based in Bond Street, Oxford Street, and Regent Street.
Increased sales have been attributed to warmer temperatures and last month’s public holidays.
Jace Tyrrell from New West End Company said: “In comparison to the rest of the UK, London’s West End is holding up well, contnuing its positve retail performance.
“Due in part to the soaring temperatures in London across the Bank Holiday weekends, retailers reported a spike in shopper numbers throughout the month, with both domestic and international shoppers buying into outdoor furnishings, summer accessories and holiday wear in preparation for the summer season.”
