Stronger April sales for merchants
The latest data released in the BMF's Builders Merchant Building Index (BMBI) confirms Total Builders Merchant value sales were up 8.8% in April compared with April last year, helped by two extra trading days and an earlier Easter.
Average sales a day, which take trading day differences into account, were down 2.1% on April 2017.
The BMBI tracks builders' merchants' actual sales to builders and contractors using GfK's Builders' Merchant Point of Sale Tracking Data. The BMBI represents over 80% of the value of the builders' merchants' market.
