SIZING UP RETAIL SALES

The Commerce Department serves up its monthly tally of U.S. retail sales Tuesday.

Economists predict sales at restaurants, shops and other retailers rose a seasonally adjusted 0.8% in April from the previous month. That would match March’s increase.

Retail sales, monthly percent change, seasonally adjusted:

Jan. 2.7

Feb. 1.7

March 0.8
