Redbook Numbers for The Week of March 4, 2006

The Redbook numbers for the week of March 4, 2006 were released this morning:

Actual: +2.4%

The Redbook measures the weekly sales at chain stores, discount stores, and department stores--about 9,000 stores in total--and is therefore an important gauge of current consumer spending in the U.S. The above figure represents the year-to-year change in the Redbook sales figures, so sales are up 2.4% when compared to sales during the corresponding week back in March of 2005.

The weekly Johnson Redbook Index report is produced by Redbook Research.
