January 2020 US Same-Store Sales: Costco Sales Remain Strong as Holiday Momentum Fades

What's Inside

With Thanksgiving coming late in 2019, we saw the shortest possible number of shopping days before Christmas. Retailers saw shifts in normal November and December patterns which have spilled into January in the form of tough prior month comparisons:

  • Cyber Monday was pushed into December, and took most of its online sales with it.
  • Costco, Buckle and Cato all continued to do well in January.
  • Growth rates were moderated by an exceptional December, but all three retailers continued to do well.

This report looks at January same-store sales and what it means for these three retailers.
