As the U.S. economy enters its fifth year of expansion after the worst recession in seven decades, our own leading survey we conduct with retail merchants report on average that this has been the best year in retail business since 2006. It did not top the sales of 2006, but every year since. We will see how this shapes up with the national statistics when put together and released. So far, it appears the US trend is intact but should turn down after 2015.75.
