Two straight months of improving retail sales came to an end last month.

The Commerce Department said total retail sales fell just over a percent in March, compared with February's revised gain of point three percent.

Highland TV and Appliance which has stores in New Bern and Kinston say they've seen a dip in things like televisions, but a gain in home appliances and custom kitchen sets.

Economists had been expecting a slight increase last month.
