    Covid-19 hasn't been the only force affecting the retail sector

    Covid-19 hasn't been the only force affecting the retail sector


    Overall, sales are improving - up 19.6 percent last month compared to last year.

    Retail NZ chief executive Greg Harford says maintaining staff levels has been challenging for businesses.

    He says with the minimum wage going up a dollar twenty in April, nearly a quarter of retailers cut their staff numbers.

    He says it's had huge impacts into the retail market, where margins are low at the best of times.
