Two Columbus-based Retailers Boost Sales.
Two Columbus-based retailers today reported sales during November, December and January.
Close-out retailer Big Lots says winter weather and the later timing of income tax returns dampened sales during the past three weeks, especially furniture sales, but the west-side company reports a nearly 4 percent increase in sales for the past three months.
Big Lots operates nearly 14-hundred stores in 48 states.

Limited Brands says it expects to adjust 4th quarter earnings upward.
