The CBI distributive trades survey’s retail sales balance in the United Kingdom jumped 9 points from a month earlier to +39 in November 2021, suggesting retail sales were good for the time of year and to the greatest extent since September 2015, according to the latest CBI quarterly Distributive Trades Survey. The report showed that year-on-year retail sales growth accelerated in November, while internet sales fell for the first time in survey history, with both results being affected by base effects due to the tightening of Covid-19 restrictions in November 2020. Growth in orders placed with suppliers remained well above the long-run average and total employment rose for the first time since November 2016, while stock levels in relation to expected sales were seen as broadly adequate for the first time since April, having hit a series of record lows during the previous six months. On the price front, retail selling prices increased at the fastest pace since May 1990. source: Confederation of British Industry

The survey suggested there was an acceleration in retail sales and orders growth rates in the year to October, which may partly reflect a comparison with October 2020, when sales and orders both declined amid rising Covid-19 cases and a tightening of social restrictions.
