In June 2012 the seasonally adjusted retail trade index increased by 0.4% with respect to the previous month (+0.2% for food goods and +0.4% for non food goods). The average of the last three months compared to the previous three months decreased by 1.7%.

The unadjusted index decreased by 0.5% with respect to June 2011.
