Retail sales in Romania rose by 8.4% year-on-year in September, after a downwardly revised 11.3% growth in the previous month, figures from the Bucharest-based National Institute of Statistics (INS) showed on Friday.
It was the seventh straight month of increase in retail trade but the softest pace since March, amid ongoing COVID-19 disruptions.
Sales moderated for all categories.
Sales of food, beverages, and tobacco increased by 5.6%, and sales of non-food rose 10.2%. In addition, trade for automotive fuel gained 5%.
On a monthly basis, retail sales went up 0.2% in September, slowing from a downwardly revised 0.6% rise in August.
