Same store sales were up 4.4 percent year-on-year in the December 16 week, surging by 1.1 percentage points from the prior week to an annual gain just 0.4 percentage points short of the November 25 peak, the highest level in nearly 3 years. Month-to-date sales versus the prior month were still negative and down 0.4 percent, the eleventh consecutive negative weekly reading though 0.3 percentage points stronger than last week, while the gain in full month year-on-year sales rose 0.4 percentage points to 3.6 percent, the strongest level since September 30. The strong and accelerating year-on-year sales gains reported by retailers in Redbook’s sample points to acceleration in ex-auto, ex-gas retail sales during the peak holiday sales season.
