January Department Store Sales
December 24, 2002 8:07 PM Subscribe
"There Is Only One Sale"
is the traditional January sales slogan of Harrods'
department store in London, where the elbow-fest begins next Monday
. With disappointing Christmas retail sales
being reported more or less everywhere
, it looks like the U.S. National Retail Federation's statement "What's going to be crucial now is the week after Christmas" is not the usual BS. Sales in Europe are still month-long extravaganzas
where unique bargains can be had. In the U.S. they seem to be more frequent, shorter and somewhat diluted. Assuming you're normal (a stingy, somewhat gullible and opportunistic shopper like the rest of us), what are your post-holiday shopping objectives? Which department stores will you be hitting? Or is it all just a big con?
