Retail sales last week expanded for the third consecutive week but the gains remained nominal.
The International Council of Shopping Centers and Goldman Sachs chain store sales index rose 1.5 percent over the comparable 2013 week and 0.7 percent over the prior week during the seven days ended Saturday. That represented a deceleration from the week ended March 8, when the gains were 2.1 and 1.3 percent, respectively.
