While the consumer climate improved once more, the increase was not quite so marked,” market research company GfK said in a statement. “Income expectations continued to rise, but economic expectations and consumers’ willingness to spend fell slightly,” the statement said. “The constant to-ing and fro-ing over Greece’s future in Europe is clearly starting to have an effect on consumers.”
