Chain Store Sales  
Released On 1/4/2018 For Dec, 2017

Highlights
Chain stores are reporting mostly stronger rates of year-on-year sales growth in results that point to strength for holiday shopping. The ex-auto ex-gas reading in the retail sales report proved very strong the last three reports and today's results point to yet another solid gain, this time for the key month of December.

Definition
Monthly sales volumes from individual department, discount, apparel, and drugstore chains are usually reported on the first Thursday of each month. Chain store sales correspond with roughly 10 percent of retail sales. Chain store sales are an indicator of retail sales and consumer spending trends. There is no official composite number for each month's sales, merely sales figures for individual chains. Also, which chains release monthly numbers varies over time as corporate policies sometimes change in regard to providing monthly numbers to the public in addition to quarterly data.  Why Investors Care
