ArmInfo. In Jan-Sept 2016  versus Jan-Sept 2015, the revenues from the trade sector dropped by  0.1% (versus 5.6% decline a year before) to 1.5 trillion AMD ($3.2  bln), including 194.3 bln AMD ($409.8 mln) in September alone, with a  1.4% rise versus Aug 2016. 

The improvement of the year-over-year dynamics was due to the  positive dynamics of wholesale trade and car trade amid the  slackening of the retail trade decline.

According to the National Statistical Service of Armenia, in Jan-Sept  2016 versus Jan-Sept 2015 retail trade fell by 3.4% (versus 7.6%  decline a year before) to 858.7 bln AMD ($1.7 bln). In the structure  of retail trade, the share of stores (including supermarkets) was the  biggest - 662.5 bln AMD, or 77.1% (2% year-over-year growth). The  share of other trade outlets was 109.1 bln AMD or 12.7% (27.1% y-o-y  decline); the share of consumer markets was 53.7 bln AMD or 6.3%  (1.6% y-o-y decline); the share of stalls was 20.3 bln AMD or 2.4%  (4.4% y-o-y decline), and the share of farm markets made up 13.1 bln  AMD or 1.5% (5.6% y-o-y decline).
