Greek retail sales drop in November, led by supermarkets, fuels

    ATHENS, Jan 31 (Reuters) - Greek retail sales by volume
declined 2.9 percent in November compared to the same month a
year ago after a 1.0 percent drop in October, statistics service
ELSTAT said on Wednesday.
    Retail sales were led lower by supermarkets, fuels,
lubricants, foods and beverages, the data showed.
    Greece's economy expanded for a third straight quarter
between July and September, driven by strong tourism and higher
government spending. Gross domestic product expanded 0.3 percent
in the third quarter from the second.             
    The government expects the economy to grow by 2.5 percent
this year.
