WASHINGTON — Retailers of apparel and accessories can thank slumping auto sales and cold weather for their biggest one-month sales gain since last December, according to economists.
Retail sales at clothing and accessories stores jumped 4 percent to $14.69 billion in October against September on a seasonally adjusted basis and sales also gained 3.6 percent when compared with October 2001, the Commerce Department’s report revealed Thursday.
