Most industries experienced a decline in sales volume from June to July this year. Lower sales of electrical household appliances, furniture, clothing and shoes, and sales at retail stations in particular contributed to the decline in this period. Grocery stores and retail sales of food, beverages and tobacco in specialised stores, however, had an increase in sales volume from June to July this year. Sales volume via the Internet also had an increase.
