Store Sales Y/Y change4.4 %2.9 %

Highlights
Same store sales were up 2.9 percent year-on-year in the April 7 week, decelerating sharply by 1.5 percentage points from the prior week's strongest of the year pace. Month-to-date sales versus the prior month were up 0.3 percent, the second best reading of the year, while the full month year-on-year gain was up 3.4 percent, a tick shy of last week's strongest showing since the end of December. Despite the weakening seen this week, Redbook's same store sample continues to show results robust enough to point to fairly strong ex-auto ex-gas retail sales.

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
