    Most big name retailers have had their earnings go bust (AEO, ANF, GPS, JWN, CHWY, URBN, FL, TGT to name a few). All those back to school sales were pulled forward with stimulus and amazon prime day many months ago. YoY animal adoption in April 2021 was 30% and we're at 11% now.

    The pandemic run in retail has ended. Businesses now face decisions over shedding excessive real estate, supply chain disruption issues and employees who think they should be paid $20 an hour.

    Retail sales rise faster than expected in October even as inflation pushes prices higher

    Retail sales rose 1.7% in October, both for all items and excluding autos.

    Price pressures fueled the spending increase, led by online shopping and gasoline.

    Inflation has been rising at the fastest pace in 30 years, but consumers don’t appear to be curtailing their purchases
