It pertains to my business

I’m an avid reader of Shop-Eat-Surf because it’s really the only online newsletter that I have found that is not only industry related, but also because it’s not so “guy-centric.” I find that a lot of the information I read on the site pertains to my business (as a swimwear designer) and keeps me up to date on what other companies and other women in the industry in general are doing which is not only inspiring but also helps me gauge the future direction of my business as well.

I feel privileged to read the Executive Edition because I know I am getting insider industry information before it hits the mainstream media channels. And it’s always good to know what my friends are up to in 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.
