LONDON — Britain’s beleaguered retailers have just been dealt one more rare challenge: snow.
Since fall, the British capital’s retailers have been wrestling with the global credit crunch, a recession, increasingly spooked consumers, and the rising cost of goods due to the falling value of the pound. Now they’re dealing with the fallout from the worst snowstorm to hit Britain in 18 years. More than six inches of snow fell Sunday night, with intermittent storms continuing through Monday, and more inclement weather expected today.
