Prague – The Czech Statistical Office (CSO) will today publish how Czech retail was doing in November. In October, calendar-adjusted retail sales fell by 0.2 percent year on year, down 1.9 percent month-on-month. Analysts expect a more significant decline in retail trade in November due to the month-long closing of stores, but it should be milder than during the spring wave of the coronavirus pandemic in April.
Clothing and footwear retailers were the least successful in October, recording a year-on-year decline in sales of 36.5 percent. Traders in products for culture, sports and recreation had sales lower by 18.8 percent. Specialized stores with computer and communication equipment decreased by 16.4 percent and specialized stores with food grew by 17.3 percent.
Traditionally, online retailers and mail order services performed well, with sales up 31.5 percent in October. Stores with pharmaceutical and medical goods improved by 6.3 percent year-on-year and non-specialized stores with food predominance by 5.3 percent. Sales also increased slightly in stores with household products.
Sales and repairs of motor vehicles, adjusted for calendar effects, fell by 7.6 percent year on year. Gross sales were 10.5 percent lower year-on-year. Seasonally adjusted sales increased by 1.9 percent month-on-month.
