NEW YORK — With the weather outside frightful and the fire inside delightful, shoppers stayed home last week, driving down comparable-store sales for major chains.

Penney Co. Inc. Other firms were also pressured, both on the top line and in the price of their shares, as the storm took away whatever momentum the month may have had.
