Retail Sales Comps: What Did Your Favorite Store(s) Do?

June 3, 2010 1:15 pm

Many of the retail companies are reporting their comparable store sales for May. These are from a year ago period (month vs. year earlier month). So, the “easy-comps” that we saw over the last few periods are no longer used as a look-back. Therefore, the amazing rise that showed up for retail during the first half of 2010 will appear much more on a normal trend moving forward.

Below are a few of the reports that came inthrough Briefing.com this morning. Below that there is a comprehensive report that shows monthly changes and a heatmap of the trend.
