Friday 31 July 2020 | 16:10 CET | News
Italy's retail sales rose by 12.1 percent in June compared to the previous month but were still lower than pre-Covid 19 figures and down 2.2 percent on an annual basis. The latest report from national statistics office Istat said the monthly rise was due above all to a record 53.5 percent year on year rise in e-commerce sales, with small-scale shop sales falling 6.4 percent and supermarket sales declining by 1.8 percent.

Computers and telecommunications equipment (+15.1%) and household furnishings (+10.4%) posted significant year on year increases but most other sectors reported annual drops, added the statistics agency.
