Business, Corporate, NSGA News • September 26, 2022

DOWNERS GROVE, ILLINOIS (September 26, 2022) – According to the US Census Bureau’s Monthly Retail Trade Report, sales for sporting goods stores during the month of July reached $5.95 billion, representing an increase of 4 percent versus the prior year. Information for August 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 August and may be wondering, “why is NSGA one month behind in their reporting?” Please note that the figure currently being reported for August is for the category of Sporting Goods, Hobby, Musical Instruments and Book Stores. In 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.
