Retail stocks sobered up Friday, a day after better than expected June same-store sales spurred a rally that prompted the broader markets to post record gains. The results bettered Wall Street's low expectations based on consumer spending concerns because of high gas prices and a slowdown in the housing market.
The S&P Retail Index ended the trading week up at 528.54, rising 0.29 percent.
