I love to shop, I love to shop cheap. And now more than ever,
dollar shops are popping up everywhere. And at the time
right time, when customers are more penny savy and need to
save money. I went to the 99 cent store recently and found
some great deals on alot of products. From drugs to deodrants,
you can buy a lot of things for a lot cheaper prices. Retail
blog is all about those kinda experiences and I have learned
from it. Every penny counts in this economy at the current time.
So If you want to save more, I suggest going to the dollar stores,
you can find great items for really cheap.
Safeway is starting to lower their prices for shoppers
who are looking for cheap great deals at the grocery
stores. Grocery shoppers are getting much more frugal
and smarter on how to shop for groceries. As the recession
still strong, safeway needs to cut prices to survive
in this tough times.CLICK HERE FOR FULL STORY.

I am a big fan of macys . When it comes to nice designer
clothes and fashionable items, macys is the place to be. But with the
economy and the way everything is going, even macys has to change
their game plan and start selling things cheaper.
Kohls is getting ready to open 4 new stores near
sacramento area creating 600 jobs that is must
needed boost in sacramento. I am a big fan
of kohls, they have alot of clothes that very
affordable and very cheap. I am not shocked that
they are growing rapidly and very fast.CLICK HERE FOR FULL STORY.
Radioshack will be renamed as The Shack, trying to be
pulled away from the radio part that didn’t really
make sense to be anyway. They will focus on
selling tons of mobile devices to boost
their numbers once again in this tough
economic climate. I think its a good idea but
I am thinking that it’s quiet late of some
name changes. The Shack does sound better but
will it pull consumers into their stores,
that’s the real question.
U.S. Postal service is getting ready and studying to close more than
700 stations because of their $7 billion dollar deficit. With
major decline in sales because of email in business and personal
areas, they are studying stations to see which stations are
eligible to be closed.
Retailers are getting ready to lower their orders for the upcoming
retail holiday season . So most customers that will
go out and shop will have to fight for the gifts they are looking
for this upcoming holiday season. I thought this was going to
happen regardless, because of a horrid retail sales
for the last couple of months, retailers have to be very careful
of not over ordering this season.
From Walmart, to target, to all the big time retailers, trying
to get consumers back for back to school sale is
going to be heating up. Not only are they cutting prices
dramatically at major retailers like Walmart and Target,
K-mart will be offering retail freebies to lure
more customers in. Most consumers are spending lot less than
past year and it shows on the numbers. They are not going for
new fads, but cheaper shoes, t shirts, and jeans. There are
plenty of great retail deals to be had.
