There is news today that retail sales went up 1.2 percent in May. More on that. Plus, Costco is closing in on becoming the biggest car retailer in the nation, thanks to a policy of selling cars at a fixed, discounted price. And no, they don’t come in packs of two.

Marketplace is on a mission.
We believe Main Street matters as much as Wall Street, economic news is made relevant and real through human stories, and a touch of humor helps enliven topics you might typically find…well, dull.
Through the signature style that only Marketplace can deliver, we’re on a mission to raise the economic intelligence of the country—but we don’t do it alone. We count on listeners and readers like you to keep this public service free and accessible to all. Will you become a partner in our mission today?
