Store Sales Y/Y change3.0 %2.8 %

Highlights
Same store sales were up 2.8 percent year-on-year in the February 10 week, slowing again from the prior week's growth pace by 0.2 percentage points, the third consecutive weekly deceleration. Month-to-date sales versus the prior month were down 1.1 percent, posting the weakest reading since November 11, while the full month year-on-year gain fell 0.4 percentage points to 2.8 percent, also the weakest gain since the November 11 week. Decelerating same store sales measures reported by retailers in Redbook's sample in the last three weeks continue to point to softening of ex-auto ex-gas retail sales.

Definition
A weekly measure of comparable store sales at chain stores, discounters, and department stores. Redbook tracks week-to-week change, month-to-date change, and year-on-year change with the latter the most closely watched reading. The report offers early indications on ex-auto ex-gas retail sales.  Why Investors Care
