Message from the CEO, Dominique Lamb: 26 December 2017

December 26, 2017

Hard to believe that we’ve already reached Boxing Day in what has been a bumper Christmas for the Australian retail sector. We’re forecasting this Christmas trade period to be the biggest ever and I’m pleased to say that we’re predicting today’s Boxing Day sales to also be a record-breaker!

In total, we’re calculating Aussie’s to splash around $2.36 billion nation-wide as a tsunami of shoppers descend on retail outlets across the country for post-Christmas sales. State-by-state the NRA is forecasting the following sales figures:

STATE 2017 ($M)
NSW 771.18
VIC 740.90
QLD 397.88
SA 117.83
WA 200.63
TAS 52.49
NT 25.46
ACT 50.40
TOTALS 2356.77
ROUNDED FIGURE $2.36 BILLION

I want to take this final opportunity to say I hope you have all had a successful Christmas trade period and I wish you all the best in 2018!

Have a great week.

Dominique Lamb, CEO.
