NEW YORK — Are brick-and-mortar stores inching back into expansion mode?
Traditional retailers have taken something of a beating over the last few years, battered by everything from the recession and the newly frugal masses to the growing popularity of e-commerce and mobile commerce. The downbeat economy caused many companies to rein in the opening of new stores following a boom in the early part of the Aughts that in some cases saw retailers add up to 100 units and more a year.
