Highlights
Chain-store sales slowed abruptly in the December 1 week compared to the surge of Black Friday week. ICSC-Goldman's same-store sales index fell 3.1 percent week-to-week and slowed to plus 3.2 percent from plus 4.0 percent year-on-year. Yet the 3.2 percent pace is still very strong for this reading and points to solid momentum going into December. Redbook will post its results later this morning at 8:55 a.m. ET.
