South Korea Retail Sales Fall 1.8% On Month In August

The total value of retail sales in South Korea was down a seasonally adjusted 1.8 percent on month in August, Statistics Korea said on Friday.

That was shy of expectations for a decline of 1.0 percent following the 0.3 percent fall in July.

On a yearly basis, retail sales advanced 2.2 percent - exceeding forecasts for an increase of 1.5 percent following the 1.9 percent contraction a month earlier.
