U.S. Retail Sales Rose 0.6% in March
Spending at U.S. retailers rose broadly in March, rebounding after a weak start this year for consumer spending despite a solid labor market and growing worker paychecks.
Retail sales—a measure of outlays at stores, restaurants and websites—increased a seasonally adjusted 0.6% in March from the prior month, the Commerce Department said Monday. Economists surveyed by The Wall Street Journal expected a 0.3% increase.
