NEW YORK — For the 2002 holiday season, retailers are facing the unknown.
Business has become increasingly tricky to forecast and difficult to plan for, given this year’s mounting economic and political uncertainties, prospects of war against Iraq, declining consumer confidence and spikey sales patterns.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly.
