NEW YORK — Weakness in the broader equity markets Monday didn’t miss retail as investors kicked off the unofficial start to autumn on a decidedly down note.

Retailers across the broadline spectrum felt the pain with Dillard’s falling 96 cents, or 3.9 percent, to $23.60; Kohl’s, $2.71, or 3.9 percent, to $67.01; Sears, Roebuck, $1.61, or 3.5 percent, to $43.90; Federated, 75 cents, or 2.1 percent, to $35.15; J.C. Penney, 36 cents, or 2.1 percent, to $17; Neiman Marcus, 51 cents, or 1.8 percent, to $28.69; May Co., 50 cents, or 1.7 percent, to $28.83, and Nordstrom, 14 cents, or 0.7 percent, to 19.19. Saks ran counter to trend with a 14 cent, or 1.3 percent, uptick to $10.76.

Discounting’s dynamic duo also declined with Wal-Mart down $1.61, or 3 percent, to $51.87 and Target off 98 cents, or 2.9 percent, to $33.22.

Other value players enduring sliding stock prices were ShopKo, down 74 cents, or 5.2 percent, to $13.62; Dollar General, 70 cents, or 4.7 percent, to $14.28 and Ross, $1.45, or 4 percent, to $34.66.

Among the specialty players caught in the market’s early September swoon were Urban Outfitters, down $1.70, or 6.6 percent, to $24.19; Ann Taylor, $1.66, or 6.2 percent, to $25.04; Chico’s FAS, 80 cents, or 4.5 percent, to $16.95; Buckle, 80 cents, or 3.9 percent, to $19.90; Limited Brands, 57 cents, or 3.7 percent, to $14.72; Cache, 41 cents, or 3.7 percent, to $10.60; Hot Topic, 64 cents, or 3.7 percent, to $16.76; Wet Seal, 36 cents, or 3.3 percent, to $10.70; Charlotte Russe, 40 cents, or 3.1 percent, to $12.53; Bebe, 29 cents, or 2.2 percent, to $13.21 and Gap, 21 cents, or 1.8 percent, to $11.52.

Vendors caught in the pullback included LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton, down 51 cents, or 6 percent, to $7.94; Tommy Hilfiger, 49 cents, or 4.1 percent, to $11.51; Liz Claiborne, 52 cents, or 1.8 percent, to $27.70; Gucci, 95 cents, or 1.1 percent, to $88.85; VF Corp., 41 cents, or 1 percent, to $40.20, and Jones Apparel, 4 cents, or 0.1 percent, to $36.05.
