Polish retail sales went up by 8.4 percent year on year in September 2022 after an 8.0-percent increase year on year in August, Eurostat, the EU's statistics agency, reported on Tuesday.

Month on month, retail sales went up by 1.4 percent, the agency also said.

Retail sales in the eurozone fell by 0.6 percent year on year in September after a 2.0 percent decline a month before.

In monthly terms, the eurozone's retail sales rose by 0.4 percent following a 0.3 percent drop in the previous month.

Eurostat annual growth figures are work-day adjusted, while the monthly growth figures are also seasonally adjusted.

Eurostat data also include small companies which employ fewer than 10 people - in this case, small family shops - but exclude auto sales.
