Despite macroeconomic concerns, retail sales are likely to rise this year as a result of easing inflation and a solid job market. So, quality retail stocks NEXT plc (NXGPY), MINISO Group Holding Limited (MNSO), and Sally Beauty Holdings, Inc. (SBH) could be wise additions to your portfolio.

Consumer spending showed resiliency in the face of high inflation and rising borrowing costs. Retail sales increased 0.3% in May compared to the prior month. Moreover, according to the National Retail Federation, retail sales will increase between 4% and 6% in 2023.

NRF President and CEO Matthew Shay said, “In just the last three years, the retail industry has experienced growth that would normally take almost a decade by pre-pandemic standards. While we expect growth to moderate in the year ahead, it will remain positive as retail sales stabilize to more historical levels.”

Moreover, the global retail market is expected to grow to $37.67 trillion in 2027 at a CAGR of 7.4%.

Investors’ interest in retail stocks is evident from the SPDR S&P Retail ETF (XRT) 6.9% returns over the past three months.
