    • I think they are right. The malls are packed by me and it seems people are spending money like crazy. Much better than last year. I think the numbers for this season are going to be up, profits may be only up slightly because of price markdowns, but sales numbers may be way up.

    • I can tell you right now- I have alot of contacts in the retail business (both domestic and abroad), and December is an absolute DISASTER vs 2008- especially in the high end of the market. Most of these contacts are smaller retailers that cater to higher end clientele. Lots of business bankruptcies coming in early 2010, and many of these small businesses have been using credit cards to get by. If you aren't a huge publicly listed company with access to the capital markets, you're pretty much screwed if you need capital at reasonable rates...

      Early 2010 will make 2009 look like a picnic.
