Chain Store Sales  
Released On 3/8/2018 For Feb, 2018

Retail sales proved weak in both December and January and today's chain-store results, which are no better than mixed, point to another soft month for February. Unit vehicle sales for February, released last week, proved flat and are also pointing to retail disappointment.

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
