The point was with an announced rise coming in the tax rate, many people bought in advance, particularily more expensive items. Over time it will likely level out. But a increase before the tax rate and a decrease immediately afterwards seems reasonable.

The facts, as you state them (and I think you’re probably right) belie the alarmist, misleading headline (what “disaster”?). Also, the article uses sales figures for a single department store, and attempts to extrapolate from there to the whole economy. Clearly, the author had a point to make, and pummeled the “facts” into submission, until they “supported” his point. This is the sort of propaganda-posing-as-reporting that we’ve come to expect from the leftist media. There’s no excuse for it.
