Store Sales Y/Y change0.6 %1.3 %

Highlights
Same store sales were up 1.3 percent year-on-year in the April 1 week, resuming the brisker pace seen since mid-February except for the prior week's slackening to 0.6 percent growth. Month-to-date same store sales were down 0.7 percent versus the previous month, however, the fifth consecutive week of negative readings for this comparison. But year-on-year, monthly sales were up 1.1 percent, keeping up the 1.0 percent plus pace of recent weeks. Redbook's sample points to respectable strength in core retail sales ahead.

Definition
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
