Poland: Growth in retail sales slows from over two-year high in September
October 25, 2016
In September, Polish retail sales rose 4.8% over the same month last year, which was below August’s over two-year high of a 5.6% increase. The reading undershot the 6.1% rise that markets analysts had expected. The deceleration came largely on the back of a sharp slowdown in sales of motor vehicles, motorcycles and parts.
Meanwhile, annual average growth in retail sales rose from August’s 2.7% to 3.1% in September, the highest reading since December 2014.
