SALES CHILLED

HEAVY snow and freezing temperatures have deterred Christmas shoppers from hitting the High Street for some last minute purchases. According to data firm Experian, the number of shoppers on 19 on 20 December was 6.9 per cent lower than for the same weekend last year. Central London was one hot spot, with the West End registering strong sales in the run up to the holidays, despite the bad weather.
