ABSTRACT
The article reports that the latest VNU Retail Index of current business conditions has declined from a high of 110.7 in December to 98.2 in January and 87.2 in February 2006. By February 2006, only 47.5 percent of retailers were positive about current business conditions, compared to 63.3 percent a year ago. Just as the Retail Index has dropped, the Conference Board Consumer Confidence Index also declined in February, after an increase in January 2006. The VNU Retail Index is based on survey results received on a monthly basis from a panel of more than 500 convenience, drug, grocery, mass and specialty retailers across the country.
