Highlights
Valentine's Day gave a big 2.5 percent lift to same-store sales during the February 14 week but couldn't help the year-on-year rate which slipped 2 tenths to plus 2.1 percent. The year-on-year rate is showing no improvement from the month-ago trend which points to another disappointing month, at least so far in February, for retail sales. Redbook, where the directional trend is also down, will be posted on the Econoday calendar later this morning at 8:55 a.m. ET.

Definition
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.  Why Investors Care
