January looks to have been a slow month for retail sales and February, due like January to heavy weather, has opened below plan. Redbook's year-on-year same-store sales rate is at plus 2.8 percent for the week vs a slightly more than 3 percent trend for January.

The final verdict for January retail sales will be posted on Thursday with the government's retail sales report where the Econoday consensus, reflecting the month's severe weather, is at minus 0.1 percent.

A weekly measure of comparable store sales at chain stores, discounters, and department stores. Redbook tracks week-to-week change, month-to-date change, and year-on-year change with the latter the most closely watched reading. The report offers early indications on ex-auto ex-gas retail sales.  Why Investors Care
