What is Happening with the Retail Sector???

 

 Every day since the beginning of this 2017 New Year, we are seeing worse and worse news about the retail sector. Some of the news is extremely concerning - not only are malls failing, but retail stores we've grown up with and counted on for years are shuttering hundreds of locations across the Country and / or declaring bankruptcy.

 

 

We've been sharing on Facebook the articles from various media outlets and thought we'd aggregate just those we've come across from the beginning of the year - we were shocked! The headlines just get worse and worse (they are listed below most recent on top) until Warren Buffet recently confirms the death of retail as we know it....
