Back-to-school shoppers helped propel an August same-store sales gain of 5.2 percent at U.S. chain stores, according to ICSC’s index.

With the back-to-school shopping season coming to a close, sales posted a very strong gain, with apparel stores closing out the month at their highest year-over-year gain in four months. It’s a great indicator that consumers are ready and willing to shop as the economy continues to improve,” said Jesse Tron, spokesman for ICSC. “In fact, our back-to-school survey showed that on average, consumers are spending more this season, at $325, on school items than last year when they spent $284,” he added.
