Mexico: Retail sales extend their decline in July, impacted by virus conditions

  • Retail sales fell 0.4% m/m (+9.9% y/y), in our view impacted by a deterioration in virus conditions

  • Sector dynamics were differentiated, likely influenced in part by inflation, as well as some base effects

  • We expect more headwinds in the short-term, especially as conditions took a turn for the worse in August
