Manitoba's wholesale numbers down from March, but up over April 2013

Manitoba’s wholesale industry saw its sales drop 3.7 per cent in April, Statistics Canada said today.

The agency said $1.38-billion worth of goods were sold during the month, compared to $1.44 billion in March. However, April’s total was still a 12.1 per cent improvement from a year earlier, when only $1.23 billion worth of goods were sold.

Statistics Canada said the machinery, equipment and supplies subsector accounted for the month-over-month decline in sales.

Nationally, wholesale sales rose 1.2 per cent to $51.2 billion in April, following a decline in March. Statistics Canada said higher sales were recorded in all subsectors except for food, beverage and tobacco.
