Highlights from our October US Retail Sales Report:

US retail sales grew again in October – but with mixed results 

  • Sales growth accelerated in food and beverage stores, general merchandise stores and motor vehicle and parts dealers. 
  • But several sectors saw sequentially slower growth in October, with department stores (a sub-set of general-merchandise stores) hit hardest. 
  • Clothing and accessory stores also posted declines – albeit slower than the prior month. 
  • Nonstore retailers grew rapidly.
