Retail trade, December 2009

Retail sales rose 0.4% in December, mostly offsetting the decline in November. The rebound was largely caused by a shift in the timing of clothing and footwear purchases as a result of November's unseasonably warm weather throughout most of Canada. In volume terms, retail sales increased 0.6%.
