#Retail #holiday sales rise, but 2017 won't be rosy for all. E-commerce was hot and there were pockets of strength among retailers like #Gap and #AmericanEagle. But the performance of department stores was weak, and some analysts are predicting multiple bankruptcies in the specialty sector by the end of the year. - http://bit.ly/2iwci1k #RetailNews #Retailers
While holiday retail sales were strong, not everyone benefited and analysts expect some bankruptcies in 2017.

The #Christmas 2016 selling season was very good for #Costco. Sales rose 2% overall, 1% in the U.S., 5% in Canada 5% and 1% in “other” regions for the 18 weeks ended Jan. 1, 2017. #Millennials and Gen Z shoppers have been signing up in greater numbers, causing the average age of members to decrease. #RetailNews #Retailers

The first gift of #Christmas is a partridge in a pear tree. But how much would that pear cost if #Congress imposed a tax on every pear imported to the U.S.? According to U.S. census data, America imports over $10 billion in fruit each year to help meet consumer demand. If Congress has their way, the price of fruit could skyrocket. http://bit.ly/12DaysofTaxesDay1 #DontTaxXmas #TaxReform #Taxes #RetailNews #Retail #RetailIndustry

The practical impact of these proposals will bring near-term gains for some retail employees at the expense of others, and create substantial compliance difficulties for their employers. - http://bit.ly/2hRhD6X #retailnews #newyork #compliance

Minimum wages will increase in 20 states at the start of the year, a shift that will lift pay for millions of individuals and shed light on a long-running debate about whether mandated pay increases at the bottom do more harm or good for workers. http://on.wsj.com/2hNHrRy #RetailNews #RetailIndustry #WageGap #MinimumWag
About 4.3 million workers across the country are slated to receive a raise at the start of the year, a shift that may shed light on a long-running debate about the effects of mandated pay increases at the bottom of the wage scale.

The second gift of #Christmas is two turtle doves. According to U.S. census data, America imports over $2 billion in #holiday decorations each year to help meet consumer demand.
