RETAIL sales have dropped by nearly ten per cent as the recession maintains its hold.

While Jersey’s volume of sales – which takes the value estimates and removes the effect of price changes – dropped by nine per cent compared to the same period in 2011, UK shops recorded a one per cent increase.

The Island’s report, by chief statistician Duncan Gibaut, said: ‘This represents the third consecutive quarter in which the total volume of retail sales has declined on an annual basis.’
