National sales are up and down

The national retail sector registered mixed results last week.

National retail sales dropped 0.4 percent for the week that ended Saturday but were up 2.8 percent year-over-year, according to the International Council of Shopping Centers Goldman Sachs Weekly Chain Store Sales Index, which was released Tuesday.

Cool weather in some parts of the country worked as a drag against some summer-clearance items that were on sale, the index found.

The council is predicting a three to four percent year-over-year increase in national retail sales in July.
