March 23, 2017
In February, retail sales rose 7.3% over the same month of 2016, which was a slowdown from January’s strong 11.4% expansion. Although still robust, sales across most components lost steam, with pronounced slowdowns in sales of motor vehicles and fuels.
The trend improved in February, when annual average growth in retail sales climbed from January’s 4.6% to 4.9%, the highest reading in over four years.
