LONDON — British retail sales grew more strongly than expected in June when non-essential stores in England were allowed to reopen to the public in the middle of the month.
Retail sales in June grew by 13.9% from May, above the average 8% growth forecast in a Reuters poll of economists.
Compared with June last year, sales were down 1.6%.
