Highlights from our July US Same-Store Sales report:

  • Costco’s global same-store sales growth marginally improved from June, but missed the consensus estimate. Its e-commerce growth accelerated to 21.3% in July, from June’s 15.7%.
  • Buckle posted a decline in same-store sales. Sales declined in both the men’s and women’s segments.
  • Cato’s same-store sales growth rate decelerated from 8% in June to 4% in July. The company stated that July total sales exceeded the company’s expectations but it foresees challenges for the second half of the year.
