BRC UK retail consortium reported price growth in UK stores in September for the second month in a row. Compared to September of last year, the price index in stores increased by 0.2% after rising 0.1% in the previous month. Prices for food products increased by 1.9%. At the same time, non-food products fell by 0.9% after a decline in prices by 1% a month earlier. BRC Executive Director Helen Dickinson expects further price growth amid high oil prices. She noted that the continuing uncertainty under the terms of Brexit also exerts inflationary pressure.
