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.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly.
