WASHINGTON — Apparel retailers and manufacturers expanded payrolls in July, the U.S. Labor Department said Friday, but the broader economy continued to suffer from a reluctant recovery.
Specialty stores added a seasonally adjusted 3,000 jobs in July to employ 1.39 million and department stores added 4,400 positions to employ 1.49 million, the Labor Department said. General merchandise stores, which include department stores, added 10,900 jobs to employ 2.95 million.
