Challenges abound for some U.S. retailers

U.S. retail is in for a challenging holiday season, according to Walter Loeb.

The very early timing of Chanukah could cut typical late quarter buying momentum.

A seismic shift in the preferences of teens to save for electronic gadgets, instead of creating buzz over trendy fashion lines, is also working against the sector.
