April was not the best of months for Manitoba wholesalers, new Statistics Canada figures show.
The agency said today that Manitoba’s wholesalers shipped out $1.28 billion worth of goods during the month. That was a decline of two per cent from March’s total of $1.31 billion, and was down 10.3 per cent from a year earlier, when $1.43 billion worth of goods were sold.
The 10.3 per cent decline was the largest among the six provinces that saw their sales fall on a year-over-year basis. And the two per cent drop was the third largest among the four provinces that posted a month-over-month decline.
Nationally, wholesale sales inched up by a meagre 0.2 per cent to $49 billion from March to April, the agency said. However, April’s total was down 1.2 per cent from a year earlier, when $49.7 billion worth of goods were sold.
