LONDON, April 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Notwithstanding last week's dismal jobs report for the month of March, the
labor market in the U.S. has improved significantly since late last year. The
improvement in the labor market is expected to benefit office products
suppliers such as Staples Inc. (NASDAQ: SPLS), and Office Depot Inc. (NYSE:
ODP). The improvement in labor market is also expected to boost consumer
spending, which should benefit specialty retailers such as PetSmart Inc.
(NASDAQ: PETM), and Tractor Supply Company (NASDAQ: TSCO). Specialty retailers
ended mostly higher on Tuesday, tracking gains in the broad market. StockCall
