The numbers are scaringly bad for January’s mass market
-8.4% drop for total sales
-8.1% drop for retail sales
-17.7% drop for clothing and footwear sales
-20.9% drop for motor vehicles sales
-20.3% drop for computer and telecom equipment sales
-13.2% for F&B sales
The article confuses me with annual change vs month on month change data.
Essentially – bad bad sentiment!!!
