Brazil Retail Sales Rose in May on Easing of Social Distancing Measures

SAO PAULO–Brazil retail sales rose in May, the second consecutive month of growth, as the gradual easing of social distancing measures in many parts of the country allowed consumers to get out and spend more.

Sales increased a seasonally adjusted 1.4% in the month and rose 16% from a year earlier, the Brazilian Institute of Geography and Statistics, or IBGE said Wednesday. In April, sales climbed a revised 4.9% in the month and jumped a revised 23.7% from a year earlier.
