The year-on-year rate rose six percentage points to plus 2.6 percent but is still trending lower on a four-week basis, at plus 2.8 percent vs 3.1 percent in the prior week. Redbook's year-on-year rate has been trending substantially lower than ICSC-Goldman, at plus 1.9 percent for the four-week average.
