Adjusted for calendar effects, the volume of sales rose by 1.1% in food, drinks and tobacco stores, by 9.7% in non-food retail trade and by 5.6% in automotive fuel retailing, KSH data suggest.

In January-May 2015, the volume of sales – also according to calendar adjusted data – was 6.1% higher than in the corresponding period of the previous year.
