Retail Sales in U.S. Unexpectedly Fall for Third Straight Month
12 March 2015, (Bloomberg)
http://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2015-03-12/retail-sales-in-u...

Excerpt:

Sales at U.S. retailers unexpectedly decreased in February for a third consecutive month as inclement weather and low wage gains restrained shoppers.

The 0.6% drop followed a 0.8% decrease in January, Commerce Department figures showed Thursday in Washington.

The median forecast of 86 economists surveyed by Bloomberg called for a 0.3% gain.

Sales declined in nine of thirteen major categories, led by auto dealers and building supply merchants.

ECONOMIC DEATH -- Retail Apocalypse
Comment by guest_blog on May 25, 2014 at 7:27pm

RETAIL DEATH RATTLE GROWS LOUDER

The absolute collapse in retail visitor counts is the warning siren that this country is about to collide with the reality Americans have run out of time, money, jobs, and illusions. The exponential growth model, built upon a never ending flow of consumer credit and an endless supply of cheap fuel, has reached its limit of growth. The titans of Wall Street and their puppets in Washington D.C. have wrung every drop of faux wealth from the dying middle class. There are nothing left but withering carcasses and bleached bones.

With the price of gas at almost $5/gal, I shop online as much as possible. I like Costo and Target. I go to Fry's for electronics and haven't been in a Best Buy in years. Some of the stores on this list should have closed a long time ago ;)
