Report: February Same-Store Sales Improve

Retail Forward reported this week that retail same-store sales, excluding Walmart, improved in February as households continue to drop some recession shopping behaviors.

The 3.9 percent sales-weighted composite for the 30 retailers reporting–most of them apparel retailers–was up from the 3.3 percent gain last month and the 4.1 percent decline in February 2009. Including Walmart, same-store sales were up 0.4 percent in February 2009.
