Greek retail sales by volume rose 0.8 percent in August compared to the same month last year after a downwardly revised 2.2 prcent decline in July, statistics service ELSTAT said on Thursday.

Retail sales were led higher by supermarkets, home appliances, books and stationery, the data showed.

Greece's economy remained on the path of recovery in April-to-June, with its pace of expansion picking up from the first quarter thanks to a boost from net exports and government spending.
