Retail sales rose by 0.7 per cent in May, year-on-year, according to the Retail Economics Retail Sales Index (value, non-seasonally adjusted and excluding fuel). This compared with a rise of 2.6 per cent reported in May 2016. Growth was down sharply on the previous month when Easter positively distorted sales and is aligned to our narrative last month which suggested that there would be "pay back" in May.
