 (Corrects to say Children's Place reported a fall in

 April 9 (Reuters) - The following table lists select U.S.
retail companies that have reported March sales at stores open
at least a year -- a key retail measure also known as
same-store sales.
 The table has the range of analysts' estimates, the mean of
these estimates, the number of estimates used to calculate the
mean and the actual change in same-store sales reported by the
companies.
 All figures are expressed as the percentage change over the
same period last year except number of estimates.
 Analysts' estimates are compiled by Thomson Reuters
Estimates.
