US Census Monthly Retail Trade Report – February 2023

Corporate • April 25, 2023

According to the US Census Bureau’s Monthly Retail Trade Report, sales for sporting goods stores during the month of February reached $4.27 billion, representing an increase of 1.6 percent vs. the prior year. 

Information for March will be available next month. 

Important side note: You may have already seen what appears to be a similar figure being reported by other organizations for the month of March and may be wondering, “why is NSGA one month behind in its reporting?” Please note that the figure currently being reported for March is for the category of Sporting Goods, Hobby, Musical Instruments and Book Stores. In an effort to provide you with the most accurate data possible, NSGA waits until the data for Sporting Goods Stores ONLY is separated out and released by the US Census before reporting it.
