Small retailers 'doing better than larger ones'

Retail sales fell by 0.4% in November from October, the Office for National Statistics (ONS) has said.

The fall is slightly more than the 0.3% monthly drop that economists had forecast and comes amid big discounting by High Street stores.

Jacqui Jones from the ONS said retailers had to note that consumers were changing their behaviour. She also said that smaller retailers were doing better than larger ones.
