R ETAIL spending in Lancashire has risen slightly, according to new figures, but customers in the county are said to need more incentive to spend.
According to new figures, released by the Office for National Statistics, retail sales for Lancashire in May increased by 3.3per cent, compared to a year ago. Danny Jatania, chairman and CEO of Pockit, said: “In recent months, the weather has been a major influence on buyer habits. We are still lacking the confidence to spend consistent amounts every month.”
