The annual retail trade turnover in Ufa made 280 billion rubles in 2009. This is by 2,2% less than in 2008. The public catering turnover made about 10,4 billion rubles (by 10,9% less). The share of Ufa in the all-Republican trade turnover is equal to 61%. As the deputy head of Ufa administration Marat Galiullin stated at today’s news-conference, the macroeconomic difficulties of 2009 have resulted in lowering of real monetary incomes of population and the reduction of consumer demand – this is the main explanation of the trade circulation reduction.
In the course of the whole year the prices for 25 items of foods, included into the consumer basket of goods, remained stable. The share of the foodstuffs, manufactured in the Republic, in the retail food market reached 80%.
