Sales Continue Upward Trend

Wayne Howard
Staff Writer

Maybe it's the improving economy--after all, many businesses were shut down a good part of last year due to the pandemic. Maybe it's inflation--because prices are higher than they were a year ago. Whatever the reason, retail sales in all area counties are substantially higher so far this year--topping last year's month-to-month figures in every month so far. Of course, that has been true for every month for the past four years. The taxable sales and purchases report from the NC Dept. of Revenue shows the following:


  • June 2021 122,318,906
  • June 2020 92,974,307
  • June 2019 87,432,764
  • June 2018 70,411,961
  • May 2021 123,805,113
