With a growing population and a strong economy, Alberta is seeing some impressive retail sales in 2013. But at least one type of retail operation in our province is seeing sales on a long-term downward trend.
Convenience store operators around the province rang up sales of $57.4 million in April of this year (unadjusted for seasonality). That sounds like a lot, but it?s actually down about 11.8 per cent from April of last year and down 24.3 per cent from three years ago (see graph).
