Store sales were soft in the March 22 week, according to ICSC-Goldman's same-store index which slipped 1.5 percent in the March 22 week. The year-on-year rate, however, did edge higher but just barely, to a very soft plus 1.7 percent. This year's later Easter is pulling sales out of March in favor of April. Redbook will post its results later this morning at 8:55 a.m. ET.
