More on ICSC Retail Store Sales

|By:, SA News Editor

ICSC reports retail sales fell off last week despite warmer temperatures across the U.S.

Though traffic was on the light side, a few categories showed improvement. Sales at wholesale clubs (COST, PSMT) and furniture stores (PIR, BBBY, LZB, RH, ETH, HVT) continued to show more resiliency in 2014 to weather than broad retail.

ICSC forecasts February comp sales will improve 3%-3.5% Y/Y.
