Retailers Putting Up Prices At Fastest Pace In 30 Years Amid Early Christmas Shopping

Faced with mounting cost pressures, retailers in the UK are putting up prices at the fastest rate since 1990 whilst benefitting from early Christmas shopping due to fears over supply disruption.

In the CBI’s quarterly Distributive Trades Survey, the balance of retailers reporting higher selling prices stood at +77% in November. That was the highest level since May 1990, with the pace of rises expected to be broadly similar next month.

NamNews Implications:

  • We have all experienced the inflation drivers in 2021.
  • So no surprises then…
  • Only issue is by how much?
  • How about 5% for starters…
  • …or perhaps a more realistic 10%?
