Eurozone retail sales rise in Oct after two months’ fall
Eurostat’s data shows that retail sales increased by 1.1% on a monthly basis in October following the 0.4% fall in September and 0.1% in August along with the effect of Brexit. This increase was reportedly driven by non-food sales.
According to the data, Eurozone retail sales increased also on an annual basis by 2.4% when compared to the 1% in September and beat the forecasts which called for an increase of 1.7%.
