Consumer activity in Brazil's retail sector fell in February as buyers pulled back after a spike in sales of fans and air conditioners during the previous month's heat wave, research firm Serasa Experian said on Friday.

Serasa's Commerce Activity Indicator fell 0.5 percent in February from January, but was up 6.1 percent from a year earlier, the company said.
