Nationally Retail Sales Down, Locally Up

by Jessica Cervantez

Across the country, retail sales numbers were down in January. But, some local retailers say they actually saw an increase.

January is typically a month where consumers aren't spending much money because it follows a lot of holiday spending.

But, places like Target in Lufkin had a strong January. Target's manager credits the use of gift cards for driving January sales.

Other retailers have seen a big boost in sales so far this month because of Valentine's spending.
