October Retail Sales - KLFY News 10

October Retail Sales

Retail sales fell in October for the first time in four months.  Auto dealers, furniture, electronics and hardware stores all saw a drop in business.  But sales at grocery stores and gas stations actually increased.  That didn't help the overall average, though.  The U-S Census Bureau is reporting a decrease in sales of 0.3-percent for last month.  The agency also says it could not precisely measure the impact from Superstorm Sandy.  But that the storm did distort the data.
