- Change from Previous Month (November 2009 to December 2009): Decrease of 0.2%
- Change from Previous Year (December 2008 versus December 2009): Increase of 5.9%
However, the big disappointment was that for the 12 months total sales for 2009 were down 6.2 percent (Â±0.2%) from 2008. That is a huge change from last year, probably reflecting the continued softness in the overall economy. Hopefully 2010 rings better.
