Power Minute #13: Summer Retail Sales Growth Stays Negative

June 2016 retail sales growth turned negative, making the rest of the summer months even more critical for retailers.

Video transcript:

Today, we’ll be taking a quick look at the June 2016 sales report and what’s projected ahead.

 

For the 3rd time in 4 months, retail sales growth turned negative, falling 2.4% from last year.

 

To summarize June’s performance, here are a few highlights:

-           Midsize car continues its steady decline, remaining the worst performing segment in the industry on a Y/Y share change basis.

-           Only a few car segments performed well, particularly for GM as its “20% off MSRP” promotional push did extremely well for Sonic and Impala.

-           And lastly, pickups are all the hype with the F-150 and Silverado both performing well, and the launch of all-new Ridgeline brought many consumers to market.

 

Looking ahead, the peak summer sales season is upon us. July has 5 selling weekends and August is just around the corner with Labor Day.
