With temperatures lingering in the 90s, summer is heating up and so are the some summer-related retail items. Rural King assistant manager Kim Matthews said they have been selling tons of fans and lawn-related items.
She said sales have remained high.
Sales may not be so hot across the map, however. CNNMoney reported that retail sales in June fell .3 percent from May. This data, they noted, is surprising because April and May were also both slow retail seasons, despite the expectation that sales would bounce back after a slow winter.
