Finland's Stockmann says March sales down 4.7 pct
HELSINKI, April 14
HELSINKI, April 14 (Reuters) - Finnish retailer Stockmann said on Monday its March sales were down about 5 percent from a year ago and that its Crazy Days campaign sales were down 6 percent in euros, due to the strong euro.
"The decline was due to currency exchange rates, as the Russian rouble reached its weakest level ever against the euro and also Swedish krona and Norwegian krone were clearly weaker than a year ago," Stockmann said in a statement.
