Retail sales in Italy jumped 6.6 percent from a month earlier in February of 2021, rebounding from a downwardly revised 2.7 percent drop in January. It was the biggest monthly gain in retail trade since August 2020, as coronavirus restrictions were relaxed at the beginning of the month. Non-food sales soared 14.8 percent, the most since June 2020 and compared to a 5.2 percent fall in the prior month. On the other hand, food sales declined 2.4 percent, after showing no growth. In unadjusted year-on-year terms, retail trade fell 5.7 percent, easing from a 6.7 percent decline in January. Still, most of the country’s regions, including Rome and Milan, reimposed measures from mid-March to curb a resurgence of Covid-19 cases, with all non-essential shops closed, which will likely push retail sales down again. source: National Institute of Statistics (ISTAT)
