New Government figures show the amount we spent in October grew by 1.6%, with the number of items we bought from High Street sports and toy stores increasing by 7.6% as Brits started Christmas shopping early. In contrast, online sales slipped back by -0.6% against the previous month, but ParcelHero says online baskets will still be full in November.
