Sales ebb?

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - BUSINESS -

The Com­merce De­part­ment re­ports its lat­est data on U.S. whole­sale busi­ness sales to­day.

Economists an­tic­i­pate that sales by whole­sale busi­nesses in­creased by 0.6 per­cent in Septem­ber. That would be down slightly from a gain of 0.7 per­cent the pre­vi­ous month, when sales of au­tos, gro­ceries, hard­ware, cloth­ing and other goods in­creased. Whole­salers are still ad­just­ing to a slow­down that caused in­ven­tory lev­els to rise rel­a­tive to sales vol­ume.
