    [$$] Holidays Gifts May Escape Tariffs, but Retailers Won’t

    Big retailers are hustling to speed some shipments through ports and bracing for higher costs next year from the U.S. decision to impose tariffs on Chinese bicycles, handbags and thousands of other consumer goods, though the cost increase won’t hit most holiday items. President Trump said Monday he would slap the new tariffs on about $200 billion in Chinese imports, including typical holiday purchases such as Christmas lights and wrapping paper. The timing means most holiday goods for 2018 aren’t likely to be subject to big price increases, said industry consultants and executives, because many leading chains like Walmart Inc. and J.C. Penney Co. already have imported most of their winter items, and the strong U.S. economy will allow retailers and their suppliers to absorb much of the initial costs.

    Francesca's shares plummet 32% as executives say it will take time to get customers back

    Francesca's Holdings Corp. shares plummeted 32% in Tuesday trading after the specialty retailer reported an earnings miss and lowered its sales guidance for the second half of the year. The stock drop puts the company on a path to the biggest percentage decline ever. Chief Executive Steven Paul Lawrence attributed the disappointing second-quarter results to weak brick-and-mortar traffic and a 13% same-store sales decrease. "What is clear from the second-quarter results is that it is taking us longer than anticipated to turn the corner and to get our core guest to reengage and shop with us with the same frequency that she has in the past," Lawrence said on the earnings call, according to a FactSet transcript. "While we are seeing improvement in many of our key metrics, our slowdown in traffic is indicating to us that it'll take time to regain her trust and win her back." One strategy for growth will focus on e-commerce, which has grown double digits, Lawrence said. Francesca's has brought on a consultancy to help with its plans. However, even with a plan in place, it's hard to get a shopper to return once they've walked away, Christina Boni, vice president at Moody's, told MarketWatch for this story about J.C. Penney Co. Inc. . Francesca's shares are down more than 45% for the year so far, while the S&P 500 index has gained 8.1%, and the SPDR S&P Retail ETF has gained 15.5% for the period.
