The sales development was influenced by a different number of working days (January 2017 had two more working days than the corresponding month of 2016).

Non-adjusted sales in retail trade increased by 5.6%, y-o-y; for sale of non-food goods sales increased by 9.2%, for sale of automotive fuel by 7.5%, and for sale of food by 0.1%.

In a more detailed breakdown: the highest growth was recorded in retail sale via mail order houses or via Internet (+27.4%) and retail sale of cultural and recreation goods in specialised stores (+15.6%).

The price deflator (CZ-NACE 47) related to the corresponding period of the previous year (VAT excluded) was 102.3%. It was influenced mainly by higher prices for automotive fuel and food.
