More on ICSC Retail Sales: The retail sector put in a mixed week with department stores, electronics store chains (RSH, BBY), and drug stores (CVS, WAG, RAD) strong for the period, but sales at dollar stores (DG, DLTR, FIVE, FDO) and wholesale clubs (COST, PSMT) notably weak. After last week's drop in sales cut into forward progress, the year-over-year gain in retail chain store sales stands 2.5% higher after threatening a 3% pace earlier in the year.
