Retail sales in a south Louisiana parish are on track to rival the area’s record for highest annual sales.

The Daily Advertiser reports that through September, retail sales across Lafayette Parish have reached $4.68 billion this year. That was only a bit behind $4.7 billion year-to-date numbers in 2014.

That year saw the highest annual retail sales across Lafayette Parish at $6.4 billion, and 2019 is on track to have the second-highest sales figures in a decade.
