Retail sales rise in January - Eurostat

Polish retail sales grew by 19.5 percent year on year in January 2022 after a 10.2-percent increase year on year in December 2021, Eurostat, the EU's statistics agency, reported on Friday.

Month on month, retail sales went up by 5.9 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.
