Places that sell clothing or accessories have also seen taxable sales rise from $1.8 billion to nearly $3 billion. But the businesses that have taken the biggest hits include motor vehicle/parts dealers, with taxable sales down from $4.7 billion to $2.7 billion, building material/garden equipment, down from $2.2 billion to slightly less than $1 billion, and furniture/home furnishing stores, which plunged from $2 billion to $540 million.

Food and beverage retailers and general merchandise stores are at basically flat taxable sales revenues.
