Christmas - Cheery. And Bleary.


Only 62 per cent of retailers expect to see higher sales this Christmas compared to last year, down from 80 per cent last year. Just under 40 per cent are expecting to see some form of Christmas period margin decrease - according to Deloitte’s annual Retailers’ Christmas Survey released on Wednesday.

That's the 'bleary'.

Now the 'cheery'.

It’s not all bad news ... Deloitte predicts digital will be a standout, with 58 per cent of retailers expecting to see growth of 10 per cent or more in online Christmas sales. Salesforce has predicted a 20 per cent increase in online sales this Christmas compared to last year.
