Poland: Retail sales recover in October on rebounding auto sales
November 22, 2018
Nominal retail sales rose 9.7% from the same month a year earlier in October, up sharply from September’s 5.6% year-on-year expansion. October’s stronger reading was driven largely by a recovery in automobile sales, which plummeted a month earlier on the heels of new emissions-testing procedures.
Meanwhile, annual average growth in nominal retail sales ticked up to 8.1% from 8.0% a month earlier.
