Retailers in the News

Topping the news is Perry’s Emporium, the North Carolina
retailer whose seasonal snow promotion will mean refunding the nearly $400,000
in purchases made during the Christmas shopping season when it snowed more than three inches in Asheville.…  Perry’s may be able to offset some of
those refunds with sales of their Tea Party jewelry that has been worn by party
leader Sarah Palin and media figure Steve Forbes.…  An Indiana jeweler held a raffle to help pay medical expenses
for children with rare diseases.… 
Then there’s the consummate holiday news of last-minute male shoppers
helping to boost bottom lines for retailers.… And the “gentleman jewelry thief” strikes at a Kay Jewelers
in Oregon.
