Bristol’s retail sales for the first quarter of 2012 made a dramatic, $32 million jump – nearly 14 percent – over the same period last year, according to a report released Wednesday by East Tennessee State University.

The reason for the substantial increase is unclear, but the report, covering receipts from January to March, states that increases were seen in all retail markets. And, those receipts in Bristol do include sales at several new restaurants that opened recently.
