Menswear on sale at menswear shops in London
MENS SHOPS have been forced to close after being forced to stock up on items due to the threat of terrorism.
The British retailer has already sold out of men’s clothing and men’s shoes in the past few days, with the number of men wearing men’s footwear set to increase as stores reopen for business.
Men’s clothing has also been heavily discounted, with retailers reporting a surge in orders and sales.
The latest data from The Sun newspaper shows men’s fashion items are expected to increase by almost 5 per cent in the week to 31 March.
The biggest increase was seen in men’s suits, which saw a 5 per-cent rise in sales to a record level of £9.6 million, while men’s jackets and shirts increased by a further 3 per cent to £8.8 million.
The number of mens fashion items on sale in London fell by 6 per cent over the same period, with men’s tops selling for an average of £3,564.
However, the biggest fall in mens footwear was recorded at Mango, which has a 3 per- cent drop in sales.
There were also a handful of mampwear items sold out on Mango’s website, which were listed for sale on a range of online retailers, including Boots, Levi’s, Uniqlo, H&M, and JCPenney.
Some retailers, such as Sainsbury’s, have said that while the UK is not under the same threat as last year, they have been “aware of the increasing threat” and will be reopening in the coming days.
The retailer said it is “working closely” with the authorities and has been offering customers “access to the latest styles, accessories and bespoke service”, while also providing them with free gift vouchers to support the efforts of the government.
“We are committed to providing our customers with the best possible shopping experience for a wide range of styles and sizes,” the statement said.
“The UK is currently facing a very serious and complex threat and while it is too early to draw conclusions from the current situation, we are committed and committed to continuing to work with the government to support their ongoing efforts to safeguard the public.”
The National Crime Agency said it has increased its surveillance of the internet in response to a growing threat of terror attacks.
It said it had been “working with industry to identify the perpetrators behind this latest attack, and we will continue to work closely with our partners to ensure we can detect and disrupt any future attempts to breach the UK’s security.”
The number and nature of terrorist attacks is constantly changing, with attacks in Manchester and London in May 2016, and the London Bridge attack in June 2017.
Last month, the government announced a series of measures to tackle the threat from Islamic State, which claimed responsibility for the attack.
