NEW YORK — Clocks sprang forward but retail sales fell back in April.
Retailers on Thursday reported lower-than-expected comparable-store sales results as literally cool temperatures and a lack of figuratively cool fashion kept shoppers’ wallets closed, eliminating hope that the late Easter would deliver to April what it took away from March. Nor did the early end to Iraqi hostilities provide the needed sales bounce.
