Attempts to sell spring merchandise got a helping hand from better weather to begin March, helping to lift chain-store sales 2.1 percent over those of the comparable 2013 week.
The International Council of Shopping Centers and Goldman Sachs, in their weekly chain-store sales index, reported that sales for the week ended Saturday were up 1.3 percent from prior-week levels. The year-over-year change matched the level of the week ended Feb. 15 and the sequential figure was the best since the 2.5 percent mark registered during the February week.
