Higher average hourly earnings, lower unemployment, and rising home values and stock market investments were potential factors in the increase in spending, according to NRF's report.
In October, retail sales rose 2 per cent from a year ago, but dipped 0.6 per cent without vehicle sales.
The healthy spending was likely fueled by rising consumer confidence, which has jumped after the election to the highest level in almost a decade.
"There is no reason to suspect that consumption growth is going to weaken in the first half of this year", Paul Ashworth, the chief United States economist at Capital Economics in NY, told Reuters.

Maxx and to smaller boutique retailers. Also, department stores decreased by 7.0% unadjusted from past year. Earlier this month, Macy's announced that they were going to cut 10,000 jobs after suffering weak holiday sales.
