retail news in context, analysis with attitude

The Obama administration announced this week that as part of its effort to promote its new jobs bill, presented last night in a speech by the President to a joint session of Congress, Acting US Commerce Secretary Rebecca Blank will travel to Cincinnati tomorrow where she will join Mayor Mark Mallory for a visit to Graeter’s Ice Cream, the locally and family owned ice cream company founded in 1870.

No word on whether she’ll be bringing back ice cream to the White House ... though if she could distribute a pint of Black Raspberry Chip to every member of the House and Senate, it would almost put everybody in a better mood.
