Christmas Spending Habits - Ireland - February 2018

Christmas Shopping Habits - UK - February 2018

“It was a remarkably good Christmas given that all the economic indicators suggested that consumers should be becoming more cautious and because the comparison was with a retail boom in the final quarter of 2016. In the event, people were prepared to borrow to cover the fact that real incomes have been falling. Mintel's own consumer confidence indicators show that consumers are not concerned about their financial situation, so 2018 should start well, even if on balance there are good reasons to be cautious for the rest of the year.”

– Richard Perks, Director of Retail Research
