Business Wire Retail Report on May 2012 Retail Sales Figures

Business Wire's Monthly Retail Report is available on the day that retail sales figures for the previous month's sales are announced by the various retailers nationwide, usually the first Thursday of each month.

The Retail Report is based on information provided and released by the retailers.

This chart tracks each retailer's total sales for the previous month as compared to the same month last year and the percent change; total year-to-date sales for this year as compared to the same period last year, and the percent change. The last four columns show the percent change in comparable store sales for the prior months as compared to the same month last year and the percent change in year-to-date comparable store sales versus the same period last year. All entries with a "B" were provided by source in rounded billions format only; otherwise all figures are in millions.
