The retailers sales fell to CZK 444bn (EUR 18.1bn) in 2010 from CZK 445bn in 2009, when they increased by CZK 10bn y/y. Tesco Stores CR, the local unit of British retailer Tesco, was the market leader with sales of CZK 45bn in 2010. Second ranked Ahold Czech Republic, ahead of Kaufland and Makro Cash&Carry. Retailers of furniture, household equipment and electronics registered falling sales, while drugstores saw their sales rising. Analysts expect this year the retailers' sales to stagnate.
