Retail sales in fell 2 percent in August, which some people say is a good thing because the decline is smaller than in past months. Sales dropped at Target (3 percent), Abercrombie & Firtch (29 percent), and American Eagle (7 percent).
Sales increased at Old Navy (4 percent), TJ Maxx (5 percent), and Aeropostale (9 percent). Folks are hoping this means back to school sales will be strong this weekend.
I plan to do a bit of shopping this weekend for the $50 fashion challenge against SDBargainMama. Also, I’ve got a gift certificate at J.Crew to spend!
