Retailing in Spain (http://www.reportsnreports.com/reports/160656-retailing-in-spain.html): Spain’s economy slumped again during 2012, sliding back into severe recession as GDP declined by over 1%. In addition, the Spanish economy suffered as the Spanish financial system needed to be rescued following the collapse of the fourth most important bank in Spain, Bankia, early in the year. This rescue and the high public deficit in the country resulted in higher taxes, with both income tax and VAT rising. Disposable income levels declined once again during 2012 and, as a result, overall consumption declined and retail value sales fell by 2%.
Retailing in Estonia (http://www.reportsnreports.com/reports/225358-retailing-in-estonia.html): Estonian retailing continued its rapid improvement in 2012 similarly to the previous year. Although an increase is projected for the following years, the growth rates will stabilise. Rapid improvement in value sales in 2011 and 2012 was mainly caused by the overall price increases, but also recovery from the financial crisis. This in turn fuelled the confidence of Estonians by creating jobs and improving their disposable incomes. Hence, consumers were able to spend more. In 2012, Estonian retailing marginally exceeded the value sales growth experienced in the pre-crisis period and therefore, there is room for further expansion.
Retailing in Latvia (http://www.reportsnreports.com/reports/225359-retailing-in-latvia.html): The Latvian economy managed to return to growth in 2011 and posted a further healthy increase in 2012. A declining unemployment rate and higher household disposable incomes accounted for increasing consumer purchasing power. For this reason, the majority of consumers were able not only to spend more on staples but also increase their expenditure on discretionary goods such as apparel and electronics. As a result, retail sales value of grocery and non-grocery retailers grew in line with the overall economy.
