Greek August retail sales rise 0.8%, led by home appliances, supermarkets

    ATHENS, Oct 31 (Reuters) - Greek retail sales by volume rose
0.8% in August compared to the same month last year after a
downwardly revised 2.2% decline in July, statistics service
ELSTAT said on Thursday.
    Retail sales were led higher by supermarkets, home
appliances, books and stationery, the data showed.
    Greece's economy remained on the path of recovery in
April-to-June, with its pace of expansion picking up from the
first quarter thanks to a boost from net exports and government
spending.
