Retail sales are an aggregated measure of the sales of retail goods over a stated period. The measure is typically based on a data sampling that is extrapolated to model an entire country. Because retail sales are a measure of consumer demand for finished goods, they are an indicator of the pulse of an economy and its projected path toward expansion or contraction. As a leading macroeconomic indicator, healthy retail sales figures typically elicit positive movements in equity markets.

Retail sales represent purchases of finished goods and services by consumers and businesses. They occur with products that have made it to the end of the supply chain. The chain starts with the goods producer or provider and ends with the retailer.

The beginning of the supply chain includes commodities and other raw materials. Manufacturers create the product. The middle of the supply chain is wholesale sales. They distribute the goods and services to retailers. The retailers sell them to the consumer.
