Washington – The National Retail Federation (NRF) reported today that 37,600 retail jobs were added in October.

The October figure brings the yearly total of new retail jobs to 295,000, a 2.4 percent year-over-year increase. The only retail segment that did not see an increase was clothing stores, the NRF said.
