According to a new report by Statistics Canada, Saskatchewan experienced the largest increase in retail sales when compared to all other Canadian provinces between July 2006 and July 2007. Retail sales in Saskatchewan surged ahead 11.5% during the study period, well above the national average of 3.8%. Alberta was second amongst the provinces showing growth of 8.4%.
Retail market showing the most growth included automotive, building and home supplies, home furnishings, pharmacies and general merchandise. Sales in food and beverage saw a slight decline of 1.1%
I thought this was an interesting follow up to Consumer spending about to peak in Saskatchewan.
