NostraData Retail Performance

Total retail performance was -2.9per cent down compared to last week and -3.3per cent down compared to the same time last year. Overall growth recovered slightly but remained negative over the last 12 weeks and based on the trend last year looks to see a steady decline of about -5.7per cent over the next nine weeks. The top performing category, Natural Medicine was 79.3per cent greater than the next largest category, Baby, last week. The top brands are A2, Panadol and Elevit. At the same time last year, Panadol, Elevit and Nasonex were the top three brands.

It’s been another quiet week due to public holidays in NSW and QLD. We expect some recovery next week as schools and workers return. This report is based on sales in the last week from approximately 2000 pharmacies. The “Top 10 Products Chart” only reports where the number of stores the item was sold exceeds 400.
