Flooring sales drop by almost a quarter

The value of flooring retail sales plummeted in April, dropping by almost a quarter compare with March.

Sales in England, Wales and Scotland were £211,524,000, 23.98% down on the previous month.

Sales were just 1.4% lower than April 2023 and down 3.67% on April 2022. Sales were 21.29% higher than April 2021 and 83.34% up on April 2019.
