Increased retail and hospitality sales in the United States

The U.S. Department of Commerce said Thursday that the seasonally and calendar-adjusted value of retail sales and hospitality was 618.7 billion USD in August, up 0.7 percent from July. Analysts expected a 0.8 percent decline after a 1.8 percent decline in July. (MTI / Reuters)
