The total value of retail sales in Australia was up a seasonally adjusted 1.3 percent on month in September, the Australian Bureau of Statistics said on Friday – coming in at A$29.669 billion.

That beat forecasts for an increase of 1.0 percent following the 1.7 percent decline in August.

Individually, sales were up for household goods, clothing, cafes and other retailing; sales were down for food and department stores.

By region, sales were up in New South Wales, Queensland, South Australia, Western Australia, Tasmania and the Northern Territory; sales were down in Victoria and sharply in the Capital Territory.
