I didn’t even listen to the news for info on Christmas spending. I knew Christmas spending was up. Why? Because my mall, the one that in prior years has been 50% full when others are at 99% capacity (The radio reports these things in Houston.), has been full for over a week before Christmas and was full last night too. I knew it was up, but I didn’t know how much.
All Things Conservative told me it was 8.7% up, without including internet sales.
