With extended hours, sharper discounts and some late-fall momentum, retailers are expecting huge traffic through the Thanksgiving period. Then it’s back to reality.
Retailers are up against a challenging season marked by six fewer days than last year; two rushes seen happening this Thanksgiving and just before Christmas offset by a big lull in-between; expected comp-store revenue gains of over 2 percent to just under 4 percent for the season overall, and struggles to maintain margins and market share.
Alberta Ferretti's "Rainbow Week" sweaters are back. The designer closed her #MFW show with a few day-of-the-week sweaters, which first debuted on the catwalk last January as part of the pre-fall 2017 collection. #wwdfashion (📷: @delphineachard)
