Mexico: Modest retail sales rebound, helped by better virus conditions

  • Retail sales rose 0.2% m/m (+5.9% y/y) in September, likely helped by better virus dynamics but with some challenges

  • Sector dynamics were differentiated, likely influenced by inflation, base effects, and some pandemic distortions

  • The short-term outlook seems more encouraging, suggesting a recovery in consumption in the last quarter of the year
