On a comparison of the last three months with the previous three months, which helps iron out volatility, sales were narrowly up 0.1 per cent.“The average level of retail sales volumes in January-February is 0.5 per cent above the average in the last three months of 2010,” said Citigroup’s Michael Saunders. last_img
