Retail Focus 9/23/19 – Positive Holiday Shopping Forecasts; hhgregg Reopens Physical Store

Projections come out from Deloitte and AlixPartners suggesting the holiday season may see a robust increase in sales year-over-year, countering a more bearish outlook from Wells Fargo. We discuss this, as well as hhgregg (or H.H. Gregg, depending on which style you prefer) making a foray back into brick-and-mortar. Additionally, we take a look at Sears Hometown & Outlet Stores earnings, a full rollout of new technology from Meijer, and Stage finally handing over the keys to Gordmans.
