Monthly Survey of Large Retailers, October 2017

Released: 2017-12-15

Monthly data from the large retailers program are now available for October.

The large retailers program provides a commodity breakdown of national retail sales for a panel of about 75 large retail enterprises participating in the Retail Commodity Survey.

  Note to readers

Beginning with the release of data for the January 2017 reference period, Statistics Canada has updated the Large Monthly Retailers panel to improve industry coverage and to ensure that the membership better reflects the retail sector. A list of the businesses selected in the new panel can be found at The Monthly Survey of Large Retailers.

Retail commodity data are now collected and published using the new product classification standard known as the North American Product Classification System, which provides more product detail than the commodity classification system formerly used.
