  • In January 2021, total UK retail sales fell for the second consecutive month amid a third national lockdown in England. Nonessential retailers (most nonfood retailers) were forced to close from January 5 (separate lockdowns have been enforced in devolved nations of the Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales).
  • Supported by the closure of nonessential stores in England from January 5 and similar lockdowns in other UK nations, total online retail sales climbed 75.0% in January after rising by 6% in December. Online sales grew as a percentage of overall retail sales in January to 35.2%.
