Yes, the Brits are doing a great job at telling Christmas-type stories and we need to learn from them. They seem to have no problem saying the word Christmas while we say "holiday," or worst yet, "Xmas." Happy Christmas American retailers.

It will continue to work well for both of these retailers and any others that offer the service. Why? These are larger stores and finding items continues to be a challenge for most of us men and many women as well. If the item is not in stock it...

Cheers for Tesco. A lot of U.S. retailers should have the courage to promote the Christmas holiday as well as our European cousins do each year. To respond to just one person is a fantastic move. I am sure many people had the thought but it took Claire's one...
