The new ordering does make the differences between store type clear. But, I'd put Kohl's in the "Discount" category.

Hi,

while % change is all very well there are big differences in the total sales between these stores.

How about drawing the height of the bar so that the bara area for each % change is proportional to total sales?

Dave, like this?

I've used the total change sales to match the total sales, as "sales per shop" wouldn't be the same. The legend is twisted round because this is an Excel area graph on its side, and I haven't troubled to fix it.
