US retailers are fast approaching their most important weekend of the year: Thanksgiving!
That's right James / Matt - and not sure if you guys saw this one from Gallup - but looking like it's going to be an unhappy Xmas for retailers with American's planning to cut back on the retail spending cheer. http://www.gallup.com/poll/165872/americans-trimming-holiday-spending-plans.aspx Not to mention the fact that news about WalMart store doing a food drive for it's own staff who can't afford to celebrate Thanksgiving. Sad sign of the way America is heading.
Here is an article on the retailers leading into Thanks Giving. Looks like many of them are seeing the opportunity to stay open and make some ground on what has been a soft year. http://finance.yahoo.com/blogs/the-exchange/here-s-the-real-reason-stores-will-open-on-thanksgiving-170735876.html
