In March, driven by the unprecedented demand, there were seasonally adjusted rises in March 2020 food retailing (24.1 per cent), household goods (9.1 per cent) and other retailing (16.6 per cent).

Meanwhile, the lockdown measures led to turnover fall in Cafes, restaurants, and takeaway food services (-22.9 per cent), Clothing, footwear, and personal accessory retailing (-22.6 per cent), and Department stores (-8.9 per cent) in March 2020, seasonally adjusted.
