Retail Editor 1 -- Home Textiles Today, June 14, 2011

New York - The pace of comp gains slackened during the second week of June, gaining 3.2% following a 4.2% increase the previous week, according to the Johnson Redbook.

The discount channel saw comps rise 4.3%, while the department store sector eked out a 0.9% increase.

"Summer apparel was active in both discount and department stores," said Redbook analyst Catlin Levis.

Also showing strength, she said, were fans, air conditioners and sporting equipment.
