Retail Excellence Ireland says they have just come through the 14th consecutive quarter of declining sales.
The worst affected sector was IT and computing, which suffered a drop of nearly 20% between June and September compared to the same time last year.
Speculation about what the budget will bring meant September figures were hardest hit - down 1.48% on the same month last year.
However there was some good news for electronics retailers, with this week's digital switchover bringing an increase in TV sales.
