For the week of August 31, TheStreet highlights key earnings from major retailers, along with important reports on the economic calendar.

On Tuesday, we'll also get some numbers on the automobile industry, when auto sales are released. The Purchasing Managers' Manufacturing Index and the Institute for Supply Management (ISM) Manufacturing Index, along with construction spending will be out that day as well.
