South Korea’s retail sale grew last month on the continued double-digit growth in online shopping, a government report showed on Thursday. 

Combined revenue of 26 major online and offline retailers rose 4.1 percent in October from a year earlier, according to the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy.
