Though hampered somewhat by cooler weather, which chilled some sales of seasonal apparel, same-store retail sales nudged up slightly ahead of plan during the first week of June, the Johnson Redbook Index reported. Same-store sales advanced 5.2 percent over their year ago level, besting a target of 5.1 percent growth, with both full-price department stores and mass merchants topping their targets. Department stores, still gaining on the strength of improved fashion assortments in seasonal apparel, grew 3.3 percent, compared with a target of 3.2 percent.
