Store Sales Y/Y change3.0 %2.6 %

Highlights
Same store sales were up 2.6 percent year-on-year in the April 21 week, decelerating by 0.4 percentage points from the prior week to match the slowest pace of the year. Month-to-date sales versus the prior month also showed slower growth though they were still up 0.3 percent, but the full month year-on-year gain in sales declined to 2.8 percent, which matched the February 10 week for the slowest pace of this year. The sales growth deceleration reported by retailers in Redbook's same store sample in the April weeks points to slower growth in 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
