NEW YORK — There’s a different ring to Christmas this year and retailers like the sound of it.
No one characterized the post-Thanksgiving weekend as a bonanza and retailers remain cautious. But after Friday’s and Saturday’s business, merchants are not wavering from previous forecasts for a healthy holiday season, marked by increased full-price selling, low to mid-single digit sales gains, and a tight grasp on inventories.
