WASHINGTON — Apparel and accessories stores boosted payrolls in February while department stores shed jobs, as the overall pace of job growth remained modest, the U.S. Department of Labor’s monthly employment report showed Friday.
Specialty stores added a seasonally adjusted 4,300 jobs to employ 1.4 million last month, while department stores trimmed 6,600 jobs from payrolls to employ 1.3 million. General merchandise stores, a category that includes department stores and discounters, cut 5,400 jobs to employ 3.1 million in February.
