Eurozone retail sales grew by clothing and food

Eurozone retail sales grew in September, buoyed by sales of clothing, food and tobacco.

Eurostat, the European Union's statistics office, said retail sales in the region rose 0.7% month-on-month and 3.7% year-on-year.

The figures eclipsed a 0.4% fall in car fuel sales in the month.

The data indicates the area's economy is picking up amid stronger domestic demand. Economists expected less of an overall improvement.
