In November, retail sales fell by an adjusted 8.7% year-on-year, from a downwardly revised 10.2% fall in the prior month, data released by the Prague-based Czech Statistical Office (CZSO) on Thursday show.
Retail sales dropped further for food as well as non-food products by 9.2% and 9.6%, respectively.
Sales of automotive fuel fell by 2.1%.
On a monthly basis, retail sales fell by 0.3% in November, following a downwardly revised 2.1% drop in October.
