retail news in context, analysis with attitude

As pretty much everyone in the US knows, next Monday is Memorial Day here in the US, a national holiday that unofficially kicks off the beginning of summer.

Which means that MNB gets to sleep in on Monday.

I’m also going to push my luck a bit - just like I did last year - and take Friday off as well and turn it into a four-day weekend. The weather report looks reasonably promising, the ingredients for a Dark & Stormy (several of them, in fact) are in the larder, and I’m ready to put the top down on my car.

So I hope you have a good weekend, and I’ll see you Tuesday.
