After a slight reprieve in May, sales and traffic metrics declined on par with results seen in March and April. In June, sales were down 8.1 percent as compared to one year ago, on a decline of 8.3 percent in traffic. Average Transaction Value (ATV) trended down with sales, and reversed a three-month trend of positive increases, and overall transactions declined 7.3 percent year-over-year (YoY). The only bright spots were a 0.5 point bump up in conversion, with a corresponding 0.1 percent increase in shopper yield (sales per shopper).

Father’s Day was a driver for the month of June, and Saturday, June 17 was the best shopping day of the month for stores, as sales, traffic, shopper yield and transactions all peaked with shoppers busily finishing their Father’s Day buying.
