retail news in context, analysis with attitude

• The Chicago Tribune reports that Toys R Us “is giving last minute holiday shoppers a break this year, thanks to round-the-clock shopping right up until Christmas.” The retailer said its stores all over the country “will stay open for 112 hours straight starting at 6 a.m. Tuesday, Dec. 20 and continuing through 10 p.m. on Christmas Eve” - the second year in the road that the toy retailer has done so.

I cannot tell you how thrilled I am that I will not be one of the customers perusing the aisles of Toys R Us or any other retailer in the days before Christmas.
