Slow return for retail sales

A recent report by professional services firm Deloitte Access Economics suggests retail spending could be slowly picking up in Western Australia, with recent official data finding sales grew 0.3 per cent in January after seasonal adjustment.

However, the move doesn’t point to a particularly strong return to growth until at least next year, Deloitte found, with national retail growth predicted to be 2.4 per cent in 2017.

Deloitte Access Economics partner David Rumbens told Business News that WA was lagging other states in retail sales growth.
