Australia Retail Sales Rise Just 0.1% In June
The total value of retail sales in Australia was up a seasonally adjusted 0.1 percent on month in June, the Australian Bureau of Statistics said on Thursday - coming in at A$25.043 billion.
That was shy of expectations for a gain of 0.3 percent following the 0.2 percent gain in May.
For the second quarter of 2016, retail sales advanced 0.4 percent on quarter to A$72.682 billion.
That also was below expectations for 0.5 percent, which would have been unchanged from the three months prior.
