Toronto, Ontario (PRWEB) April 09, 2014
The year has only just gotten started and already there is much to look forward to in the economic sector. According to a new study released by Statistics Canada, retail sales rose 1.3% (to $40.7 billion) in January. Sales were also strong in motor vehicle and parts dealers, but were strongest in the general merchandise stores. Department stores, especially, saw a strong increase in sales in this market, with a 5.3% increase.
This is great news for business owners and may indicate strong sales throughout the year. In an effort to foster online sales – there is more good news: the federal government has released a digital economic strategy entitled "Digital Canada 150," with plans that include protection for Canadians with increased digital security and expanding internet access to thousands of residents in rural areas.
"Today's business owner needs to be prepared for both the traditional and modern-day customer,” commented Parry Rosenberg, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at MONEXgroup. “It’s not enough to simply have a traditional brick and mortar store – having an online presence offering a virtual shopping cart so customers can shop when is most convenient for them - is proving to be not just beneficial, but crucial.”
