NEW YORK — At least in one sense, the fourth quarter went according to plan for retailers.
While the most upbeat hopes for a quarter filled with sales increases failed to materialize, the "plan" was for lean inventories to help salvage the fourth quarter, minimizing margin risk as consumers displayed a penchant for penny-pinching in a tough economic climate.
