Most retailers surveyed said they planned to offer more overtime instead of hiring additional workers this holiday season.
Things are looking up for retailers as solid sales in recent months could mean that shoppers are ready to spend more this holiday season, according to an L.A. Times business report. Despite the expected sales growth, 67 percent of retailers surveyed by the Hay Group planned to keep their seasonal hiring at the same levels as last year, and 24 percent plan to hire even fewer workers. Designer Shoe Warehouse is located just off Manchester Road. The company reported exceptional sales growth this year, but is one of the retailers that plans to offer more hours to its normal sales staff rather than hire additional workers, the Wall Street Journal stated.

September marks the beginning of the holiday shopping season with the arrival of temporary Halloween stores, but temporary locations may begin to get more pricey.
Pop-up retail stores are nothing new. Shoppers are no longer suprised to see vacant retail spaces fill up during the holiday season with specialty stores, such as the Halloween Express now open in a former Kincaid Home Furnishing Store on Manchester across the street from Manchester Highlands. It takes a lot of planning to make a store as large as Halloween Express magically appear for the frightfully short Halloween shopping season. According to a store employee, the store’s locations are scouted out at the beginning of summer, and employees set up merchandise in August. “We start ordering for Halloween after last Halloween,” one employee said. Halloween Express plans to stay open for a few days after Oct. 31, depending on how much …

Shoppers flooded Target stores nationwide seeking bargain priced designer goods from Missoni, an Italian designer.
The demand for merchandise labeled “Missoni for Target” has been surprising, to say the least.

For example, a Missoni for Target infinity scarf sold for $25, while the same type of scarf at Neiman Marcus costs $200. Are they the same product? Of course not. The Target scarf is 100 percent rayon and half the length of the “real” Missoni scarf which is a blend of acrylic, polyamide, mohair and polyester. The scarf is nowhere to be seen in St. Louis stores and is sold out online. Yet eBay has more than 30,000 listings for “…
