The weather improved in the February 22 week but not retail sales, at least according to ICSC-Goldman's sample where same-stores fell 0.6 percent vs the prior week. Year-on-year, sales are up only 1.4 percent. The 4-week average for the year-on-year rate is at plus 1.5 percent, unchanged against the month-ago comparison which points to flat sales for February as a whole. Redbook, which has also been reporting weak results, will be posted later this morning on the Econoday calendar at 8:55 a.m. ET.
