Executive Edition is a must have
Executive Edition is a must have

Before Shop-Eat-Surf, there were two sites I paid for premium content on. One is Surfline, the other is the Wall Street Journal. One is about all things surf, the other, the best business content site in the world. Shop-eat-surf is the intersection of those two worlds. Shop-Eat-Surf provides everything from coverage of events, people, brands and trends. However, beyond the Executive Edition "wall" is more meaty analysis and interpretation of financial statements, business models and brand philosophies; why certain brands and companies are succeeding, where others aren't. The Executive Edition is a must have read if the business of surf and action sports are on your radar screen.

I read Shop-Eat-Surf at every opportunity, and I waited too long to sign up for the Executive Edition. It’s timely, relevant and clearly “from the industry, for the industry.

October chain-store sales post 3.7% gain

Press Release:

 

NEW YORK, November 3, 2011 – U.S. chain-store sales rose by 3.7% on a year-over-year basis according to the International Council of Shopping Centers (ICSC). The overall sales pace for the year continues to show strength with a fiscal YTD pace of 5.1%.

 

“October sales were, to a degree, off of the fiscal YTD pace due to a special host of factors,” said Michael P. Niemira, vice president of research and chief economist for ICSC. “Of which a primary one was weather, as unseasonably warm temperatures in the beginning of the month curbed demand for cold-weather apparel, and a snowstorm in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic states at the end of the month negatively impacted traffic.”

 

ICSC expects that November sales will increase between 3.5% – 4.0%.

 

ICSC Chain Store Sales Trends is a monthly report on the U.S. retail industry's sales performance based on an ICSC preliminary compilation of publicly-available sales for 25 chain stores during the month of October. Industry sales aggregates are compiled for "comparable-store" or "same-store" sales and for total store sales. Those data are presented as an index. Comparable-store sales are also compiled for specialized-industry groupings, which include aggregates for apparel chain stores, department stores, discount stores, drug stores, footwear stores and wholesale clubs.
