Britt Beemer, CEO of America’s Research Group based in Charleston, estimated that Charleston and statewide sales were flat or declined half a percent. Nationally, he said December sales were down about 1.2%.

This prediction falls in line with the National Retail Federation’s prediction that holiday sales this year would fall about 1% from last year.
