Business Wire

NEW YORK -- January 3, 2013

Business Wire's Monthly Retail Report is available on the day that retail
sales figures for the previous month's sales are announced by the various
retailers nationwide, usually the first Thursday of each month.

The Retail Report is based on information provided and released by the
retailers.

This chart tracks each retailer's total sales for the previous month as
compared to the same month last year and the percent change; total
year-to-date sales for this year as compared to the same period last year, and
the percent change. The last four columns show the percent change in
comparable store sales for the prior months as compared to the same month last
year and the percent change in year-to-date comparable store sales versus the
same period last year. All entries with a "B" were provided by source in
rounded billions format only; otherwise all figures are in millions.
