Did the winter storm hurt retail sales?

Whenever there is a storm advisory notice, all retail companies begin looking at the amount of lose they are going to take. Numbers start adding up, stores are closed, no one is shopping, staying home, too cold, too much flood, and stores are completely shut for a few days. Those few days are completely disastrous for all the retailers. Winter storm is a nightmare for many families, and many businesses start worrying about how they will recover from the financial loses that come their way. Indeed, most retail sales did get hit this winter, hopefully they recover for the upcoming season.
