Wormley Retail sales drop by 1.1 percent in June -WASHINGTON, Lethargic shoppers depressed America's retailers in June by the largest percentage in 16 months. Looking ahead, though, buyers are expected to show more The 1.1 percent decline in sales, reported Wednesday by the Commerce Department, fol- lowed a .shopping splurge in May when sales rose 1.4 percent, better than previ- ously estimated. The retreat in buying was blamed on bad weather and the lingering effects of high energy- prices, economists said. Some analysts also said they believed June's slowdown in the growth of the nation's payrolls played a role. The economy added a net 112.000 jobs last month, less than half the number economists had forecast The report reinforced the notion that consumer spending slowed from April through June, although overall growth for these months was still expected to be decent, economists said. Analysts did not view the June results as a sign consumers will become so tightfisicd as to threaten the economic recovery. Instead, they were hopeful shoppers in the current quarter will return to buying, especially if the job climate improves. "Does this huge drop-off in Retail sales Here is a look at retail sales, seasonally adjusted.

"With the labor market firming and income growing, they should be able to sustain solid consump- tion the rest of the year." The I.I percent drop in retail sales was the largest since February 2003. when sales fell by the same amount. June's decline was sharper than the 0.7 percent drop that some economists were predicting. On Wall Street, stocks slid on the disappointing news. The Dow Jones industrials lost 38.79 points to close at 10.208.80. In the retail report, the falloff' led" by 4.3 -percent decrease in-sales at automobile dealerships, compared with May's 3.2 percent gain. Paul Taylor, chief economist at the National Automobile Dealers Association, predicted the return of incentives should bring a rebound in car sales in July. Excluding auto sales, all other sales dipped by 0.2 percent in June matching economists' expectations compared with a 0.9 percent rise in May. Sales at clothing stores, department stores, food and beverage stores, gasoline sta- tions and bars and restaurants all showed declines in June. Showing sales gains were furni- ture, electronics and appliances, building and garden supplies, health and beauty p'roducts, and sporting goods, books and music. "Retailers will look to the back-to-school season to offset June's sluggish said Rosalind Wells, chief economist at the National Retail Federation. Shoppers' spending accounts for roughly two-thirds of all economic activity. Economists are hopeful that a slowdown in consumer spend- ing will be more than offset by stronger investment by business as well as better activity from other parts of the Stuart- Hoffman, economist at Financial Services cdnj sumer spending grew at an annual rate of around 2.5 perr cent in the April-June down from a 3.8 percent growth rate in the previous quarter. Even so, Hoffman predicts economic growth, as measured by the gross domestic product, increased at a rate of around 4 percent in the second quarter, close to the 3.9 percent pacfc seen in the first three months of this year. The government's first estimate of second-quartet GDP will be released 30. In the current July-tol- September quarter, consume! spending should 'come in at about a 3 percent'pace and GDP about a 4 percent growth said Mark Zandi, chief economist at "Consumers will be-sturdy spenders, but the strongest gains in consumer spending are behind he Federal Reserve Chairmap Alan Greenspan1, and his leagues believed the economf was in sufficient shape to begift their first credit-tightening can> paign in four years.
