LANSING (WKZO) -- The continuation of a brutal winter into March took a bite out of retail sales.

According to the Michigan Retailers Association, sales were down statewide compared to both February and year-ago figures. Stores are optimistic for the spring, with 52-percent expecting sales to be higher compared to 2013 from April to June.

Nationwide, March retail sales excluding gasoline and autos were up by 0.8-percent.
