UrBC, Moscow, October 13, 2017. The average amount of money Ural Federal District-based Russians pay for their grocery shopping rose by 8.9% (up to RUR 467) in September, Romir Holding’s press service reports.

Ural Federal District proved Russia’s No.1 in terms of grocery shopping receipt amount growth in September.

In Russia on the whole, the average receipt amount went up by 3% in August and then by another 1.2% in September, reaching RUR 524.

The average receipt amount rose by 3% on average in all Russian cities with population over 1m people last month (and by 5.2% compared with last year) and actually declined a bit in both Moscow and Saint Petersburg in September.

The average receipt amount also rose by 3.7% in all Russian cities with population of 500,000 people in September (but dropped by 2.3% compared with one year earlier). As for the cities with population of around 100,000 people, the amount went up by 2.4% in September and by 1.6% against one year earlier. This did not, however, offset the current inflation rate.
