    People walk stores offering sales at a shopping mall in Santa Anita, California on December 20, 2021.Frederic J. Brown | AFP | Getty Images Grocery and energy prices have spiked, and credit card interest rates are climbing, but shoppers can expect some relief as they start holiday shopping. Retailers, desperate to coax inflation-fatigued consumers to spend, are expected to beef up promotions as they struggle to get rid of already-marked-down excess inventory. "This will be the year of the perpetual deal for Christmas," said Marshal Cohen, chief industry advisor for the NPD Group, a market research firm. In some gift categories, merchandise could be marked down by more than 20% on retailers' websites, according to Adobe Analytics, which tracks online sales. Computers, electronics and toys are all expected to hit the deepest discounting levels since Adobe started tracking figures in 2017. The abundance of deals is a sharp departure from a year ago. Last holiday season, shoppers started buying gifts early to avoid out-of-stocks and shipping delays. Concerns about not getting hot items meant consumers were willing to pay up....

    New York (CNN Business)If you walk into one of 25 Fred Meyer stores in the Portland area this week, you'll find something unusual. Gathered together at the end of an aisle will be an eclectic assortment of about 20 products, including shampoo and dish soap, barbecue sauce, granola and more. The items are made by well-known consumer brands like Pantene, Seventh Generation, Stubb's and Nature's Path. But instead of their usual packaging, these products come in glass, aluminum or heavy-duty plastic. And after you buy them, you have to bring those packages back. The items are part of a new partnership between Kroger (KR), which owns Fred Meyer grocery stores, and Loop, a platform that partners with brands and retailers to sell mainstream products in reusable packages. Loop is launching in 25 Kroger stores in the Portland metro area. As consumers become increasingly concerned about plastic pollution and sustainability, companies are ramping up their environmental pledges. Moving from disposable to reusable packaging could help prevent more waste from piling up in landfills. But before they go all-in on such...
    Many Americans are shopping small Saturday to support mom-and-pop clothing, toy, furniture, sporting goods, hardware and electronics’ stores. But this year’s Small Business Saturday promotion is unlikely to change the fortunes of independent shops in America, which have diverged dramatically from their larger rivals. Small retailers have been squeezed out throughout the pandemic and are at a significant disadvantage navigating the current supply chain crisis, rising inflation and the shortage of workers, said retail analysts and supply chain experts. First, as Covid-19 spread last year, many small shops did not meet the criteria of “essential” businesses and had to close down. Their larger competitors such as Walmart, Target, Costco, Home Depot and others were able to stay open. With smaller retailers closed and spending on travel and leisure at a standstill, these major chains boomed as Americans stocked up on groceries, household basics, office supplies and furniture during stay-at-home mandates. Meanwhile, the pandemic caused roughly 200,000 more small businesses to close in the first year of the pandemic than in a typical year, the Federal Reserve estimated. As independent shops...

    SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — A year after the COVID-19 transformed the holiday shopping season, many major retailers will still be keeping their doors closed on Thanksgiving. On Monday, Target announced that they will no longer be opening on Thanksgiving Day from now on. It’s a major change from basically a decade ago, when Target and other big box stores started opening on Thanksgiving to get a jump on the holiday sales rush. READ MORE: Pushed To Pay Cash?

    California Gov. Gavin NewsomGavin NewsomThe only way to eliminate the risk of catastrophic oil spills is to stop drilling Coast Guard: California oil leak likely caused by damage that happened months ago California becomes first state to mandate high school ethnic studies course MORE (D) signed a bill on Saturday that will require large retailers in the state to have “gender neutral” toy sections. Under the bill, large retailers in California will be required to have a “gender neutral section or area” which will feature a “reasonable selection” of children's items and toys “regardless of whether they have been traditionally marketed for either girls or for boys.” The new law — which goes into effect on Jan. 1, 2024 — applies to retail department stores that have 500 or more employees across their locations in the state. Retailers that fail to abide by the new law will be forced to pay a $250 fine. Subsequent violations will be subject to a $500 fine. The state legislature approved the measure last month. The bill argues that separating toys that are traditionally...
    Two of the holiday season's most coveted gifts went on sale in November, with Microsoft rolling out its Xbox Series X|S video game consoles and Sony debuting the rival PlayStation 5. The only problem: actually finding one of the $499 devices in stock.  Black Friday and Cyber Monday came and went with a few restocks, but the consoles remain hard to find. There could be some hope for holiday shoppers, though: Sony vowed in a tweet that more inventory would arrive at retailers before year-end.  We want to thank gamers everywhere for making the PS5 launch our biggest console launch ever. Demand for PS5 is unprecedented, so we wanted to confirm that more PS5 inventory will be coming to retailers before the end of the year - please stay in touch with your local retailers.— PlayStation (@PlayStation) November 25, 2020 Still, expect the consoles to remain a hot item and be difficult to find. Demand was so high for the PlayStation 5, which went on sale on November 12, that it caused Walmart's website to slow and show error messages...
    (CBS13/CNN) — The pandemic has transformed the holiday shopping season. Another major difference this year: People planning to shop on Thanksgiving will have fewer options than they have had in the past. Walmart, Target, Best Buy, Dick’s Sporting Goods, Bed Bath & Beyond, and other major retailers announced their decision over the summer to close stores on Thanksgiving Day. Macy’s announced in September that it will close on Thanksgiving. “We know this has been a trying year, and our associates have stepped up. We hope they will enjoy a special Thanksgiving Day at home with their loved ones,” John Furner, CEO of Walmart US, said in July. It will be the first time in more than 30 years Walmart has closed on Thanksgiving. Costco, Home Depot, Nordstrom, Trader Joe’s and others have closed on Thanksgiving for several years and will do so this year. Walmart’s Sam’s Club chain historically has closed on Thanksgiving, as it will again this year. Thanksgiving closures have been a source of tension between retailers and labor advocates in the past, especially as many retailers in...
    Beverly Hills business owners have been told to board up their windows by the local police department, as officials expect rioting throughout Los Angeles following the presidential election results, according to a text message obtained by DailyMail.com.  The BHPD sent out a mass text to all business owners in the area on Friday 'strongly' suggesting that all buildings on Rodeo Drive board up store windows by 11pm on Monday, November 2.  The department also informed owners that the famed street would be completely shut down by 12am that Monday, with no cars or pedestrians allowed to pass through. The notice also stated that no businesses should be operating 'out of safety for the community and business patrons' during the road closure. The text comes in anticipation of mass protests and possible rioting throughout the city on Tuesday, November 3, in the wake of the presidential election results. Officials fear that peaceful demonstrations on either side could turn violent after the country learns whether President Donald Trump will secure another four years in office or if former VP Joe Biden will...
