In its retail report it notes the public "couldn't get enough slippers" with sales up 13%.

With more people working from home, the sale of ties plummeted by 75% while pajama and dressing gowns increased in popularity.

The report also lists newly obsolete items, in 2018 it stopped stocking DVD players and this year it revealed it will no longer sell filing cabinets as the digital revolution catches up with shoppers.
