WASHINGTON — Women’s retail apparel prices crept up last month, but in yearly comparisons they rose at a slower rate than overall consumer prices.
Retail prices for women’s apparel increased a seasonally adjusted 1.9 percent in August, but compared with a year earlier, prices were up a slimmer 0.9 percent, the Labor Department said Tuesday in its Consumer Price Index. The August increase follows a 2.1 percent advance in prices in July.
