Prices in British shops fell last month by the smallest margin since mid-2015, in a further sign that rising costs linked to June’s Brexit vote are feeding into high street prices, an industry survey showed on Wednesday.
Shop prices fell 1.4 percent, the smallest annual drop since August 2015 and compared with a 1.7 percent decline in November, the British Retail Consortium (BRC) said.
It repeated its forecast that shop prices would soon begin to rise for the first time since 2013.
