NEW YORK — Retailers here have set plans on how to mark the first anniversary of the Sept. 11 tragedies, and in many cases the approach is low-key and the philosophy is that business must carry on.
However, no one expects much store traffic that day. Anxieties will be running high with memories stirred up and fears over another terrorist attack, while many consumers will be attending memorial services or staying home to watch them on TV. Many stores will open late out of respect for the victims of 9/11 and to accommodate associates wishing to attend morning memorials.
