Norway's retail trade dropped 3.8 percent from a month earlier in August 2021, following a 3.1 percent fall in the previous month. It was the third straight month of decline in retail trade and the steepest pace since last December, due mainly to lower sales in grocery stores. Gas stations and stores selling sporting equipment also contributed to the decline. Conversely, clothing stores increased, which dampened the overall decline. The pandemic and regulations imposed to limit infections have contributed to Norwegians changing their consumption pattern in the direction of spending less on services, and more on retail goods. On a yearly basis, retail sales fell by 2.9 percent in August, after a 4.1 percent decline in July. source: Statistics Norway
