The article reports that helped by unexpectedly strong holiday events and the launch of spring apparel, most notably at department stores, same-store retail sales were exceptionally strong during the fourth and final week of February 2005, jumping 7.5 percent. Discounter comps moved up almost as high, rising 7.1 percent, following a strong 4.2 percent increase the week before. The strong performance during the final week of February pushed sales for all of last month up 3.7 percent, well ahead of a targeted 2.3 percent increase.
