Total Online Retail Sales rose by 14.0 per cent in May, year-on-year, value and non-seasonally adjusted, compared with growth of 19.6 per cent in May 2016. This is down on last month’s growth of 19.0 per cent and the weakest growth rate since May 2016. Online Clothing and Footwear, which rose by 14.7 per cent, supported overall growth across the online channel in May as did Other Non-Food which grew 26.2 per cent.
