According to the report, the gains in sales at building material and garden equipment and supplies dealers (+3.8 percent m-o-m), as well as food and beverage stores (+0.5 percent m-o-m), were offset by declines in sales at motor vehicle and parts dealers (-1.3 percent m-o-m) and gasoline stations (-2.3 percent m-o-m).

Excluding motor vehicle and parts dealers, retail sales rose 0.5 percent m-o-m in December compared to a revised 0.5 percent m-o-m increase in November (originally a 0.2 percent m-o-m gain) and economists' forecast for a 0.4 percent m-o-m advance. Excluding motor vehicle and parts dealers and gasoline stations, retail sales surged 1.0 percent m-o-m in December.
