    I don't know about your area but, I've been noticing lately how empty the parking lots have been at big retail stores.

    At this point, these big chains may need to start advertising Fire Sales. If things don't pick-up after Thanksgiving, the big retailers are really going to be hurtin'.

    It looks like its is going to be a dismal christmas season for most retailers, that's for damned sure.

    It is not untypically for most retailers do 50% of their annual business during the 8 weeks or so of christmas season, too, so if that season is way off, their annual sales figures are going to be way way down.

    in october, retailers had the biggest drop in near 40 years.

    good deals for us are coming....

    retailers WILL drop prices in order to sell what they got....even if it hits their profit margin with less mark up in their products.....

    Sales heals ALL wounds/troubles.

    they HAVE to reach their sales goals, even if at less margin, because they need to cover their prorated expenses, then they can work on getting their margins up through special deals from vendors on future, newer, fresher product that they buy.

    BASICALLY, expect the best deals in our lifetime!!!!

    IF they do not meet their sales goals or come close, then expect more layoffs and unemployment rising.

    :eusa_think: I wonder how many of the "fat cat's" in big business, and in "government" will be having a "dismal holiday season" this year. Not many, would be my guess. :eusa_think:

    Many, are in the same boat....so, it is still a hit or miss as to whether the lower prices will help enough to make the people forget about january rent.

    It'll probably work, to some degree....knowing American's love of shopping.
