NEW YORK — Stores dusted themselves off after reporting a rough April last week and said May has been, more or less, on plan.
Sales last week in Wal-Mart Stores Inc.’s U.S. operations tracked in line with the firm’s planned 1 to 3 percent comparable-store gain for May. Apparel was among the weakest merchandise categories of the week. Traffic and average ticket each rose, with the latter making up a bit more of the comp increase.
