Men are the big spenders

Sunday Mail (UK) - - News -

Men are out­spend­ing women on clothes, shoes and even beauty prod­ucts, fig­ures showed yes­ter­day.

Two-thirds of stores have seen an in­crease in male shop­pers over the past five years and 70 per cent have in­creased their male prod­uct ranges to meet de­mand.

The fig­ures ex­plode the re­tail myth that women are the big spenders, ac­cord­ing to anal­y­sis by Bar­clay­card.

Men are spend­ing an av­er­age of £ 67 a month on clothes com­pared with £54 by women. They also spend £12 more on shoes and £ 6 more on groom­ing prod­ucts.

Bar­clay­card said men are buy­ing more in al­most ev­ery re­tail cat­e­gory, spend­ing on av­er­age £1534 more than women in shops last year.
