On a yearly basis, retail sales fell 1.9 percent - again exceeding expectations for a fall of 3.5 percent after slipping a downwardly revised 2.9 percent in the previous month (originally -28 percent).

Commercial sales were up 1.4 percent on month and down 12.4 percent in August, while wholesale sales rose 0.8 percent on month and lost 16.6 percent on year.
