The paper suggests selected empirical results from a correlation analysis of the retail trade dynamics and consumer expectations in Bulgaria for the period 2001-2017. Covariation patterns are evaluated between the quarterly rates of changes in retail trade volume and several survey-based indicators of Bulgarian consumers’ behaviour. New insights about possible effects of consumers’ attitudes and intentions are suggested concerning the dynamics of the retail trade during this period.
