The International Council of Shopping Centers publishes a weekly report of comparable store sales at major retail chains. This report accounts for about 10 percent of total retail sales. The report this week states there was a 1.2 percent jump in week-to-week same-store sales for a 2.3 percent year-on-year pace which is up 4 tenths in the week.
