After a lackluster summer in which retail sales were mediocre at best, leading some major retailers to bring down overall projections for the year, customers are slowly starting to return to the stores. Driven by the lure of updated merchandise and the need to stock up for back-to-school, retailers are finally getting some traction on early fall. As a result, their outlook for the remainder of the year — including the all-important holiday period — has improved marginally, and they’re hopeful the trend will continue as they finish up their spring buying at the trade shows in Las Vegas this week.
