The increase of sales in retail trade was the most influenced by retail sale in non‑specialised stores with food, beverages or tobacco predominating (+4.7%) and by retail sale via mail order houses or via Internet (+17.2%).

The price deflator (CZ-NACE 47) related to the corresponding period of the previous year (VAT excluded) was 97.1%. It was influenced mainly by lower prices of automotive fuel, information and communication equipment, food, and other household equipment. On the contrary, prices increased in stores with cultural and recreation goods, clothing and footwear, and dispensing chemist, medical and orthopaedic goods.
