Highlights
Mixed are the June 23 results from ICSC-Goldman whose same-store sales index surged 2.0 percent week-to-week with, however, year-on-year growth falling to plus 2.7 percent which is down nearly one full percentage point for the lowest rate in three months. Forget about the jump in the week-to-week measure as ICSC-Goldman is warning that June has been a tough month for retailers. Redbook is up next at 8:55 a.m. ET.
