Store sales are flat according to ICSC-Goldman whose same-store sales index is down 0.2 percent in the August 10 week. Though the weekly rate has been up and down in recent readings, the year-on-year rate, now at plus 2.6 percent, has been ticking higher with the 4-week average, at 2.4 percent, now at its highest point since mid-June. But components are mixed with department and apparel stores, among others, showing year-on-year improvement, but with discount and electronics stores showing weakness. Redbook will post its results for the August 10 week later this morning at 8:55 a.m. ET while the government will post the July retail sales report at 8:30 a.m.
