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.

Sorry I don't have any stories for you concerning retailers because I normally avoid their stocks like the plague, but I did want to congratulate you on your grandiloquent use of the phrase annus horribilis in both your article and your post.

It sounds so much better than the mundane horrible year and lends an air of sophistication to the otherwise pedestrian articles sometimes seen on The Motley Fool.

It brought back memories of the challenging times I suffered through both in high school and college when I foolishly decided to attempt to study Latin.

Just "razzing" you.

Interesting article and as usual filled with useful information to be applied at the appropriate time.

It's "small potatoes", but noticed you did not mention the eminent demise of CONN that some seem to be predicting.

Foolanthrophy on.

I was going to have annus horribilis in the headline, too... looks like it would have been overkill. ;) It does sound a heck of a lot better than "horrible year," doesn't it? And sorry to bring up any painful memories. I have always thought Latin was so cool, but I have to say I also foolishly (small f) decided to try to take Latin in high school and after a certain point had to give up on that particular goal, ha.

The razzing's fun. :)

Hmm, CONN -- that one hasn't hit my radar much and I didn't realize people were predicting its demise. I'll have to look around!

Foolanthropy on indeed. :)
