The latest Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) Retail Trade figures show that Australian retail turnover rose 0.4 per cent in August following a fall
of 0.1 per cent in July 2015, seasonally adjusted. The good news for AFA Members is the household good sector increased by .2% and Major retail by
1.3%. Consumer confidence is still high and people are still spending which is a good sign in the lead up to the end of the year.
