According to the figures released by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS), retail turnover in Australia rose by 3.3% in July 2020.
Turnover increased by 12.2% when compared to July 2019. In July, retail turnover increased in all states and territories except Victoria and this rise was led by continuous strength in household goods retailing, and the recovery in cafes, restaurants and other retailing services. Retail turnover in Victoria was impacted by rising COVID-19 cases and re-introduction of Stage 3 restrictions in July.
