Holiday sales rose at Target Corp. and Costco Wholesale Corp., an early sign that many retailers benefited from what was expected to be one of the strongest holiday shopping seasons in years.
Target sales rose 5.7% between Nov. 4 and Jan. 5 in stores and through company websites operating for at least 12 months, the company said Thursday. Sales rose 3.4% during the same period last year. The results put Target on track to have its best full year of sales growth in 13 years, the company said.
