Retailers report modest sales gains for February
NEW YORK – Retailers are reporting modest sales gains for February as consumers, uninspired by cool weather and worried about the economy, shopped cautiously for spring merchandise.
Overall, 15 retailers reported on Thursday that revenue at stores open at least a year — a key indicator of retail health — rose an average of 1.7 percent. That number comes from the International Council of Shopping Centers.
It is a sharp slowdown from the 4.5 percent pace in January when shoppers splurged on holiday clearances.
