This article focuses on improved sales of home furnishings.

Redbook Analyst Catlin Levis said discounters continued to do reasonable business in food and household basics, which were boosted somewhat by shoppers in the Southeast stocking up ahead of Hurricane Jeanne and also rebuilding after previous hurricanes.
