The day after Christmas is often believed to be the year’s other Black Friday, with many stores offering deals and sales hoping to milk a few pennies more from customers. But with the economy the way it is, did the shoppers rush to the mall this holiday season? Women’s Wear Daily, the industry’s trade magazine, reports that this year menswear is outperforming every other merchandise category for most large stores. “It’s less worse by half,” noted David Fisher, executive vice president and general merchandise manager of men’s wear for Bloomingdale’s. Interesting. What about you reader, have you shopped more this year than in year’s past? Why, or why not? Comment away!
