NEW YORK — Retailers have a tough decision to make in the next few weeks: how to mark the first anniversary of the attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon and plan for the day’s trading.
It’s a difficult and sensitive situation, compounded by anxieties that will be heightened that day with fears of another attack. Retailers in and out of New York expect reduced traffic in their stores, but note that 9/11 falls on a Wednesday, which would not draw as much volume as much volume as a Saturday or Sunday, and that back-to-school selling is past its peak.

"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)
