AP - Shoppers have been seeing signs of an improving economy, enough so that they picked up their spending in April from March despite cold weather that stopped them from buying spring clothes.
According to a preliminary tally of 11 retailers by the International Council of Shopping Centers, revenue at stores open at least a year rose 3.4 percent in April from last year.
That's up from a 2.2 percent gain in March but still shows modest growth.
