CORRECTED-Brazil December retail sales fall 0.1% from November

(Corrects to say retail sales fell 0.1% in December, not rose 0.1%)

BRASILIA, Feb 12 (Reuters) - Retail sales volumes excluding cars and building materials in Brazil fell 0.1% in December from November, government statistics agency IBGE said on Wednesday, much weaker than the median estimate in a Reuters poll of economists of a 0.2% rise.

Sales grew 2.6% from the year-earlier period, less than the expected 3.5% increase in the Reuters poll, while over the course of calendar year 2019 sales rose 1.8%, IBGE said. (Reporting by Jamie McGeever)
