Let me tell you how bad sales really are.
The American consumer is dead, long live the American saver. Americans are using the gas savings to pay off debt. Saving for a rainy day for when they lose their job. My customers are telling me they now have 2 years saved. The uber rich. The mid class are paying of credit card debt and paying cash. Oh and as for sales...................... well this time last year we had 8 registers going the whole time and now. Well lets put it this way. Most of yesterday was 3 to 4 registers and at one point I was the only cashier for 15 min. and 5 of those min. I had not one customer. DURING FRICKEN CHRISTMAS!!!!!!!!! And just one little note more items are being returned this year compared to last. SIGH>>>>>>>>>>>>.
