MOSCOW, Oct 10 (Reuters) - Fast-growing Russian retailer Magnit said on Wednesday that its September sales grew by 36 percent, year-on-year, to 36.1 billion roubles ($1.16 billion), after rising by 34 percent in August.
The company opened 145 new outlets last month, bringing its total number of stores to 6,119, it said in a statement.
Last month Magnit raised its full-year sales growth guidance for 2012 to 30-32 percent from 30 percent and said that it expected growth to slow to 25-27 percent next year.
