The March report on retail sales indicates a measurable impact was felt by retailers from the round of cooler weather seen in the U.S. during the month right along with broader macroeconomic factors. Department store (KSS, JWN, DDS, SKS, SHLD) and home garden (HD, LOW) sales tipped to the weaker side while online sales showed some strength.

    Weather is always an iffy excuse, but normally by now I would have done a lot of yard work and been at Home Depot dropping big time dough, but the weather in Chicago area has been so bad I haven't been there once.
