– In March 2021, the turnover of Austrian retail trade increased by
23.6% in nominal terms and by 23.0% in real terms compared to March 2020,
according to preliminary results by Statistics Austria. The main reason
for this incline is the closure of a large part of the shops due to
measures to contain the corona pandemic in March 2020. In the non-food
sector, which was particularly affected in the year before, the increase
was 47.6% (nominal) and 48.0% in real terms.
In the first quarter of 2021, turnover increased by
1.6% in nominal terms and sales increased by 1.5%.
Results were calculated by Statistics Austria, Short
