Getting a boost from post-hurricane restocking in the Northeast, same-store sales rose 0.7 percent in the November 10 week according to ICSC-Goldman. The reports note particular strength in grocery sales during the week. Yet the report's year-on-year rate, at plus 1.8 percent, remains soft though it is up four tenths from the prior week. Redbook will post its results later this morning at 8:55 a.m. ET.
This weekly measure of comparable store sales at major retail chains, published by the International Council of Shopping Centers, is related to the general merchandise portion of retail sales. It accounts for roughly 10 percent of total retail sales.
