Sabadell analysts have also positively assessed the start of the third quarter (between August 1 and September 11), with an 11% increase in store and online sales at a constant exchange rate, since it is compared with a record period of 2021 and means maintaining a “solid” rate of improvement “at a time when doubts about the evolution of consumption in recent weeks have made the range of estimates for said indicator very wide”.
