The British Retail Consortium (BRC) reported that this Christmas, online sales of non-food products in the UK grew 19.2% in December versus a year earlier, the highest growth in four years. The online penetration rate achieved 18.6% in December. The key point here is that we must engage constructively with technology if we are to maximise its benefits.
