Saskatchewan is ranked first in retail growth in Canada.
In September the province saw a 1.7 per cent increase from August, higher than the national average of point 2 per cent. “The increase in retail sales from August is good news, as it reflects consumer confidence in our economy,” Trade and Export Development Minister Jeremy Harrison said. “This confidence and consumer demand is an important economic indicator which helps strengthen business performance and in turn positively impacts the economy.”
The value of Saskatchewan’s September retail sales was $1.63-billion.
