Retail Sales

Retail sales is a measure of total receipts at stores, or establishments, that sell goods and services to final consumers. It is indicative of the health of our economy because, historically speaking, when consumers are optimistic about their financial future, they tend to spend more and consumer spending drives our economy. This indicator is beneficial for all the people and companies involved in producing, transporting and selling goods.
