WASHINGTON — Retail prices for women’s apparel ended the year on a low note, as price-cutting and deflation led to further erosion.
Compared with December 2001, women’s apparel prices fell 2.1 percent, locked in the same pattern of year-over-year declines, the Labor Department reported Thursday in its Consumer Price Index, the most widely watched gauge of inflation. In December, prices for women’s apparel fell 0.5 percent against November.
