Wednesday 7 October 2020 | 11:27 CET | News
Italy's retail sales returned to "nearly pre-pandemic levels" in August, rising 8.2 percent in value and 11.2 percent in volume compared to the previous month. On an annual basis, the value of sales was up 0.8 percent compared to August 2019, the first year on year increase since February 2020. The latest report from national statistics office Istat said the monthly increase was due above all to a 36.8 percent year on year rise in e-commerce sales, with supermarket sales inching up by 0.4 percent, while small-scale shop sales fell 0.5 percent.
