PLBuyer Index Shows Sales Down From Last Year

DEERFIELD, Ill., June 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Private label sales dipped in the four weeks ending May 19 from a year earlier, according to the new PLBuyer Index, presented by IRI and Retail Systems Research.

The PLBuyer Index was 97.77 for the period, with private label's share of revenue falling 0.22 percent from a year earlier.

The groundbreaking index – compiled from data gathered from total U.S. multi-outlet supermarkets, drugstores, mass market retailers, military commissaries and select club and dollar retailers -- measures the health of the private label industry each month. Expert analysis from RSR provides context to the information as well as the framework for turning the raw data into the PLBuyer Index.

The PLBuyer Index breaks down information into eight categories within total store sales. Index numbers above 100 show growth in private label revenue share year-over-year, while those below 100 show declines.

For the 4-week period ending May 19, Frozen had the highest index number at 121.49, followed by HBC at 113.21 and Non-Edible at 113.20.

A deeper look at the index will be available in the July issue of PLBuyer magazine, available beginning July 1.
