Sales in the week bridging April and May took a step backward, according to the weekly chain store sales index compiled by the International Council of Shopping Centers and Goldman Sachs.
Sales in the week ended May 3 were 2 percent below those of the prior week as challenging weather conditions again made sales increases hard to come by. On a year-on-year basis, sales advanced 2 percent, below the 3.1 percent gain in the preceding week.
Alberta Ferretti's "Rainbow Week" sweaters are back. The designer closed her #MFW show with a few day-of-the-week sweaters, which first debuted on the catwalk last January as part of the pre-fall 2017 collection. #wwdfashion (📷: @delphineachard)
