Clothes stores reported their worst performance for nearly three years this month despite signs of better trading for other retailers. A balance of 2% of firms reported that volumes were lower than the previous year, according to the CBI, which was much better than the 22% fall in January when retailers suffered a New Year hangover. The City had expected a 10% fall. But gains were mainly felt by grocers and internet retailers, while clothes stores suffered their worst performance since March 2009 and shoppers continued to avoid big-ticket purchases such as homewares. Retailers do not expect the improvement to last, with sentiment about the next three months negative for the fifth quarter in a row, and investment plans at their weakest for three years. But there was some good news for consumers, as shop price inflation was at its lowest for more than a year. Judith McKenna, chair of the CBI distributive trades panel and Asda\'s chief operating officer, said: \"It\'s good to see there are more positive signs on our high streets. \"But consumers are clearly continuing to focus their spending on day-to-day needs, rather than big-ticket or luxury items. \"With disposable incomes under constant pressure, retailers remain concerned about the general business outlook for the rest of 2012.\" From: independent
