Cold weather drives comps

Retail Editor 3, January 19, 2011

New York - Same-store sales dipped slightly during the second week of January, according to the Johnson Redbook.
Aggregate comps for the week ended Jan. 15 rose 2.5% after gaining 2.8% a week earlier. Same-store sales for the department store sector were up 3.5$, while discounter comps increased 2.0%.
"Year-end clearances dominated sales activity, and soft goods continue to outperform hard goods, with cold weather driving demand for winter outerwear and accessories," said Catlin Levis, Redbook analyst.
