WASHINGTON — Retail apparel prices rose a seasonally adjusted 0.1 percent in September compared with August and advanced 1.1 percent against a year earlier, the U.S. Labor Department said Thursday.
But even with signs that stores generally held prices, stocks in the sector retreated. The S&P Retail Index fell 0.5 percent, or 1.89 points, to 396. The Dow Jones Industrial Average inched up 0.5 percent, or 47.08 points, to 10,062.94 after passing the 10,000 mark for the first time in more than a year Wednesday.
