The severe snowstorm over Presidents Day weekend kept shoppers away from Jos. A. Bank Clothiers Inc.'s stores, crimping February sales at stores open at least a year, the Hampstead-based men's apparel retailer said yesterday. The company said that same-store sales - a key benchmark for retailers - decreased 1.9 percent last month. But total sales for the retailer, which sells suits, casual clothing, sportswear, footwear and accessories, rose 7 percent, from $14.4 million to $15.4 million, as Bank gained additional sales from newly opened stores.

Procrastinators and shoppers lured by after-Christmas bargains added a last-minute surge that likely pushed retail sales up an estimated 5 percent from last year, ending a string of rotten Christmas seasons. Earlier this month, sales were hurt by snowstorms that kept shoppers indoors, but heavy buying just before Christmas and in the week after helped most retailers meet their goals.
