Retail in 2009...

December 29, 2009 – Comments (2)

I did a little rundown of what I thought were interesting stories from the retail sector in 2009 for today. Personally, I thought it was annus horribilis for retail. At any rate, I might have forgotten some of the good/interesting retail stories from 2009 worth noting, remembering, or learning from, so I'd like to hear any that I forgot.   [more]

I joked about sticking themselves up in the piece, but then later remembered my article from last November, I Think We Just Got Mugged; actually I guess they don't really need to, eh? (Which I guess brings us right back to the idea that the public sentiment might lean towards rage and the resulting paranoia.)  [more]



Short But Sweet...

December 02, 2009 – Comments (4)

I've written a few quick articles for in the last couple days. Some of you may have noticed I'm not exactly known for my brevity (I can't even imagine the whole Twitter word limit thing...). However, sometimes short and sweet is great, especially to spark conversation amongst Fools, and a couple of these seemed like interesting topics folks might want to talk about.   [more]
