It’s always a big surprise to see what retailers come up short after the Christmas shopping craze.
Often times, you can deduce which stores are on life-support by the ‘generosity’ of their holiday sales (as in discount).
I wouldn’t be surprised if Best Buy begins a sharp decline after committing the ultimate foul; over-promise, under-deliver. Never good. And ever worse when it comes to Christmas goods.
