Spain has been reeling under the effects of a double dip recession with the economy contracting by 1.4% in 2012 and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) projects the economy will contract by a further 1.5% in 2013. The after effects of the recession have trickled down to many sectors, including retail which declined during the period 2007-2012. A weakening economy and rising unemployment have led to a decrease in the average household disposable income which declined by 8% in 2012 over 2011. Lower disposable income has resulted in decreased consumer spending and declining retail sales.
