NEW YORK — In an industry where performance is difficult to predict, retailers want some certainty, even after coming off a dizzying, roller coaster holiday season.
So this week, thousands will be attending the National Retail Federation convention in New York seeking a read into the future to help them plan for it. It’s the biggest retail industry event of the year, where prognosticating and networking abound, and success stories and strategies are conveyed in scores of panels and presentations.
