Retail Sales Rise But Shoppers Choosy After Shutdown
Tue, Oct 22 2013 00:00:00 E
By MARILYN MUCH , INVESTOR'S BUSINESS DAILY Posted 10/22/2013 01:01 PM ET
Consumers picked up the spending pace last week as the government shutdown ended, giving retailers a nice bump in sales, according to the International Council of Shopping Centers-Goldman Sachs channel checking survey.
The ICSC-GS same-store sales index for the week ended Oct. 19 rose 1.4% from the prior week and by a hefty 3.2% from a year earlier.
Business was mixed vs. a year ago. But overall, consumers were more in a buying mood, though on a selective basis. Business was brisk for wholesale clubs, department stores, specialty stores such as jewelry stores, and dollar stores and discounters. That was likely good news for giant warehouse club Costco Wholesale ( COST ), department store Macy's ( M ), jewelry retailers such as Tiffany & Co. ( TIF ), deep discounters like Dollar Tree ( DLTR ), Dollar General ( DG ) and Family Dollar Stores ( FDO ), as well as giant discounters Wal-Mart ( WMT ) and Target ( TGT ).

The mild weather across parts of the Northeast likely softened demand for seasonal category sales, but cooler weather by the weekend was a positive. The cold weather across the West was likely good for seasonal apparel.
Same-store sales for September rose 3.5% vs. a year earlier for the 12 retailers reporting monthly comps, tallies Michael Niemira, the ICSC's chief economist.
The September pace of sales was depressed by the apparel segment, which declined 1.8% vs. a year earlier.
Niemira forecasts October comps to increase by 3% to 4% vs. a year earlier.
