    MEXICO CITY, April 25 (Reuters) - Mexican retail sales rose
in February from January, but grew at their slowest pace since
October 2015, the national statistics agency said on Monday,
suggesting headwinds for consumption in Latin America's No. 2
economy. 
    Adjusted for seasonal swings, sales rose 0.2
percent in February compared with January 2016.
    Compared with the same month in 2015, retail sales climbed
9.6 percent, their fastest pace since at least
2009.
    Consumer spending has been a relative bright spot for the
economy.
