ATLANTA — Many men’s retailers attending the Cobb Show here said they got a short-term lift last month from early tax returns, Valentine’s Day, the Super Bowl and even Mardi Gras. But they weren’t confident sales would stay up and have cut buying as much as 20 percent.
Exhibitors at the two-day show that ended Monday at the Cobb Galleria said a lot of retailers were having trouble paying bills or paying slowly, and some were just walking away and closing.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
