Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.
~ Dr. Seuss (March 02, 1904 - September 24, 1991)
It wasn't surprising really. The August same-store numbers really confirm the trend of slowing retail sales and consumer spending, ... August was the back-to-school that wasn't. August and back-to-school doesn't quite have the importance it did a decade ago, but outside of that make no mistake, consumer spending has slowed down and Americans are tapped out.
