Lots To Learn This Back-To-School Season

Still working on your tan? Hurry up, because the back-to-school shopping season is about to start. In fact, Staples has declared the “official” beginning as July 15 and is running a “First Bell” promotion as a kickoff.

After the dreadful 2008 holiday season, retailers will be monitoring back-to-school sales closer than ever. The sales figure also could indicate how the 2009 holiday season will pan out. Many retailers, of course, place their holiday orders during the summer and fall.

Back-to-school spending this year is expected to reach $38.3 billion, a 0.6% increase from 2008, according to an estimate by the International Council of Shopping Centers in a relevant Wall Street Journal article.

I’m working on retail technology-based stories about both the back-to-school and holiday shopping seasons. Feel free to contact me if you’d like to comment on the stories.

Oh, and if you think it’s too soon to be talking about back-to-school and holiday shopping, then don’t visit Sears online or one of its 372 stores, where Christmas décor shops have already been erected.

The folks at Jimmy Choo apparently chose not to heed such red sole shoes christian louboutin warnings, and this handbag suffers for it.I really wish it was better, because I kind of like where they were headed with this red bottom shoes christian louboutin style, but the first problem is the star studs. Studs can be studs and stars can be stars, but making them one and giuseppe shoes the same on a super expensive handbag does not exactly say “high end” to me. It says rodeo clown. When you combine that red bottoms shoes on sale with a healthy doze of fringe and chunky leather stitching on the same bag, this particular piece becomes something that would probably only christian louboutin store appeal to a very specific customer, and that customer is not me. Which is too bad, because the leather and the wrinkling detail cheap louboutin shoes on this bag are beautiful. It’s the rest of it that’s not. Buy through Nordstrom for $1495.
