UK retail sales saw their biggest drop in six months in September as customers spent less on food, the Office for National Statistics (ONS) has said.
Sales fell by 0.8% from August, while annual growth slowed to 3% from 3.4%.
Rhian Murphy, head of retail sales at the ONS, said sales continued to grow in the quarter to September, boosted by online shopping and sales of jewellery.
“This was despite a stark slowdown in food sales in September, following a bumper summer,” she said.Tags: march, retail, sales, since, steepest
