Grainger sees 8 percent rise in April sales

By

Mettawa-based W.W. Grainger said daily sales in April increased 8 percent over the same period last year.

The maintenance, repair and operating products supply company noted the increase included 3 percentage points from volume, 2 percentage points from price, 2 percentage points from acquisitions and 2 percentage points from the timing of the Easter holiday. Sales gains were partially offset by a 1 percentage point decline from foreign exchange.

The month of April 2013 had 22 selling days versus 21 selling days in April 2012.
