MEXICO CITY, March 12 (Reuters) - Mexico's retailers' association on Tuesday said sales at stores that have been open at least 12 months rose 0.2 percent in February from the same month last year.
ANTAD also said its members' total sales rose 5.0 percent from a year earlier.
The association, known as ANTAD, includes retail chains Walmex and Soriana as well as other department stores.
