Denmark's debit card sales rise 4.2 pct in August

COPENHAGEN, Sept 4 (Reuters) - Retail purchases with the Danish national debit card, Dankort, rose 4.2 percent in August from a year earlier to 28 billion Danish crowns ($4.9 billion), card payment services firm Nets said on Thursday.

The figures are an indicator of private consumption and come ahead of the national statistics agency's retail sales data.
