Poland: Retail sales post quickest growth in nearly a decade in March
Retail sales increased 17.1% compared to the same month a year earlier in March, which contrasted February’s 2.7% decrease. The print marked the best result since April 2011. March’s turnaround was largely due to a pick-up in motor vehicles, motorcycles and parts, as well as textiles, clothing and footwear sales.
Meanwhile, the trend improved, with the annual average variation of retail sales coming in at minus 2.3% in March, up from February’s minus 4.3% reading.
