Same-store sales finish February with a bang
March 2, 2005,
NEW YORK — Helped by unexpectedly strong holiday events and the launch of spring apparel, most notably at department stores, same-store retail sales were exceptionally strong during the fourth and final week of February, jumping 7.6 percent, the Johnson Redbook Index reported.
Discounter comps moved up almost as high, rising 7.1 percent, following a strong 4.2 percent increase the week before.
