Easter holiday set to lift retail sales HUF 60 bln

Deals

Retail sales in the run-up to the Easter holiday are expected to rise by about the same amount as last year, HUF 60 bln, according to the National Retail Association (OKSZ). 

Last yearʼs retail sales around the holiday were up from HUF 45 bln-50 bln in the preceding years, said OKSZ chief secretary György Vámos.

This yearʼs sales were helped by the decision by some retailers to keep their doors open on Palm Sunday, as allowed under recently introduced legislation that keeps most big stores closed on Sundays.
