Michigan retail sales up in June

LANSING (WKZO) -- Michigan's retail industry is showing strength. According to the Michigan Retail Index, June's sales were up significantly from a year ago, with 53-percent of retailers reporting more sales than the same month in 2013.

The Michigan Retailers Association says 58-percent of their members are expecting sales to continue to be higher than last year through September. There are, however, worries about early fall and the upcoming back-to-school period.
