Retail sales rise in February - Eurostat

Polish retail sales grew by 14.2 percent year on year in February 2022 after a 19.4-percent increase year on year in January 2022, Eurostat, the EU's statistics agency, reported on Thursday.

Month on month, retail sales went down by 1.6 percent, the agency also said.

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.
