June Retail Sales: By the Numbers

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- June retail same-store sales expectations were mediocre heading into Thursday's results, but so far companies are topping forecasts.

June is typically the month when retailers up their discounts in an effort to make way for back-to-school merchandise. This, coupled with historically weak mall traffic, was expected to result in a choppy overall performance for the sector.

Ross Stores: (ROST - Get Report) up 5%

Nordstrom: (JWN - Get Report) up 7.9%

Saks: (SKS - Get Report) up 11.9%

J.C. Penney (JCP - Get Report) up 2%

Macy's: (M) up 6.7%

Target: (TGT) up 4.5%

Buckle: (BKE) up 10.8%

Gap: (GPS) up 1%

BJ's Wholesale: (BJ) up 7.3%

Wet Seal: (WTSLA) up 7.3%

Dillard's: (DDS) up 6%

Zumiez: (ZUMZ) up 9.8%

Hot Topic: (HOTT) up 0.4%
