Christmas may be a few weeks away yet, but a PwC survey suggests that consumer confidence promises a festive season on the UK's high streets.
A recent PwC survey says that consumers remain confident about their disposable income over the next 12 months, despite the outcome of the EU referendum. The survey suggests that, following a slight dip in consumer confidence in the month following the referendum , the majority of consumers still expect to be better off in 12 months’ time. Across the UK, 19% of survey respondents said they expect to be somewhat better off than last year compared to 15% in July. While 6% expect to be much better off than last year compared to 5% in July.
