Department store statistics
How do Brits feel about one-stop department stores?
Department store revenue
The number of sales registered by department stores has seen an increase over the last decade. In 2018, the number of retail sales in department stores reached £35 billion – a 42% increase on the 2005 figure. The greatest amount spent in department stores was in 2016, when the average person spent £540 in the year.
Change to sales value
From 2009 to 2018, the percentage change has increased every year. Over the decade, the average annual increase has been 3.6%. However, the percentage change was lower in 2018, at just 2.4%, so it will be interesting to see how the stores have fared this year.
The UK’s favourite department stores in 2019
Marks & Spencer, a Britain-based store specialising in high-quality clothing, homewares and food products, was ranked as the UK’s highest-rated department store in a 2019 survey, with a 74% positive rating. Following this, Wilko (sells homewares and household goods) and IKEA (Swedish furniture giant) saw 7 out of 10 people respond positively to them.
As one of Britain’s best known places to pick up all your food, clothes and homewares in one place, we put together some stats on how Marks & Spencer has fared in 2019.

Number of stores
While Marks & Spencer is synonymous in the UK, it isn’t as well known around the globe. This explains why there are 2.3 times the number of stores in the UK alone compared to all 444 international stores.
