UK retail sales continue to bounce back in June

UK retail sales continued their bounce back in June, as the reopening of shops released pent-up demand.

The amount of goods sold last month increased by 13.9%, said the Office for National Statistics (ONS).

Online sales continued to go "from strength to strength", the ONS said, accounting for £3 out of every £10 spent by consumers.

Demand at food stores remained strong, hitting new highs for the pandemic period, BBC reported.

Compared to February, volumes of food sales were 5.3% higher while non-store retailing grew by 53.6%.

The rise followed record falls in April and a partial recovery in May as the coronavirus pandemic led to widespread shop closures and hit spending.
