WASHINGTON — Retail apparel prices rose in June for the first time in nine months, even as retailers continued to discount heavily to clear inventories, the Labor Department’s Consumer Price Index revealed Wednesday.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly.
