Shoppers Expected To Buy More Seasonal Goods As Weather Warms

Store sales in the U.S. last week were little changed from a year ago. Sales have been slowing the past several months due in large part to the colder than usual weather that has kept shoppers indoors, but sales of seasonal goods are expected to rise and have already done so in areas where the weather has been warmer.

The ICSC-Goldman store sales index was +2.8% year over year for the week ending May 24 compared to +3.1% Y/Y the week prior.

The Redbook store sales index was +2.7% Y/Y compared to +2.4% Y/Y the week prior.
