Highlights
Same store sales were up 4.3 percent year-on-year in the May 26 week, recovering 1.1 percentage points from the prior week's sharp deceleration and resuming the strength seen in the earlier weeks of the month. Month-to-date sales versus the prior month were up 0.1 percent, while the full month year-on-year gain rose by 0.1 percentage points to 4.1 percent, the second strongest reading of the year. Sales results reported by retailers in Redbook's same store sample are back on track to place May as the strongest month of the year so far, pointing to strong ex-auto ex-gas retail sales for the month.

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
