I don't know about you, but I've been hearing on the radio and TeeVee all about the holiday shopping rush, and what a great year it is turning out to be for retailers! Weeee.
It's a lie. WalMart has reported that same store/time comparisons are less than last year for the first time in history
. Plus, Barry puts the media swallowed message of the retailers industry to the test
. Of course the media swallowed the message exactly as the retailers had hoped without doing any, you know, actual reporting.
Xmas shopping is thus far sluggish. Look to price cutting soon.
