Editor’s Corner: Get Ready—The Holidays Are Almost Here!


It’s hard to believe that the holiday season is fast approaching. Thanksgiving is right around the corner, and after that, there will only be 9 shopping days until Hanukkah begins and 28 days until Christmas! To help you get ready, we’ve put together several informative holiday-related stories in this month’s Retail News Insider.

First up, in our Essentials to Engagement column, we share ideas for how Sales Advisors can use in-store demonstrations throughout the month of November to help consumers prepare for Thanksgiving road trips, Black Friday breakfasts and more. Our in-depth Market Watch feature takes a look at the top five trends retailers and consumers can expect to encounter this holiday shopping season, including whether sales will be a holiday boom or bust.

Before the holidays consume you, we’re hoping you will take a moment to fill out our latest readership survey, telling us what you like best about Retail News Insider, so we can learn more about your preferences, what you want to see in upcoming issues and what you can do without. This will help us provide you with relevant stories and topics that you want and need in 2016. We greatly value your opinion and hope you’ll participate in this survey.

Finally, in this season of giving thanks, I want to extend a warm thank you to each and every one of you for reading Retail News Insider each month and helping to make it an award-winning publication.


All the best,

Angelica Martinez
