Month on month, retail sales went up by 1.7 percent, the agency also said.

Retail sales in the eurozone fell by 2.1 percent year on year in August after a 1-percent decrease a month before.

Eurostat data also include small companies which employ fewer than ten people - in this case, small family shops - but exclude auto sales.
