From the WaPo: For retailers, snow would pile on
Retailers can stop accusing the economy of holding back holiday sales. Now they can blame it on the weather.Blame it on the weather!
The mighty blizzard expected to descend on the Northeast today comes on the last Saturday before Christmas, typically the busiest day of the year for retailers.
