In using year ago comparisons for the weeks ending June 5 and May 29 allowance
should be made for the fact that in regions observing the Memorial Day holiday
store closings this year occurred in the week-ending June 5 whereas last year
they occurred in the previous week.
** Data not available .
# The large increases shown for these weeks reflect in part the fact that sales
last year were reduced because of a curtailment in public transportation service.
