NEW YORK -- Retailers are seeing plenty of green this holiday season. And it's not over yet. Records are falling as sales add up.
"This is literally the best season since before the recession," business owner Craig Johnson said.
Johnson's company, Customer Growth Partners, analyzes all things retail. He credits low unemployment and a booming stock market for this humbug-free holiday season.
"The single biggest drive of retail sales is growth in real disposable income," he said. "And when real income goes up, people have money in their pocket and they're able to spend it."

Same news cycle every year.
3-4 weeks from Christmas and they are predicting failure then, Voila!
I swear that idiot is muttering this under his breath 15x a day.
Lol - I was just going to post something like that. The jug-eared Kenyan is probably going to try and grab credit for it. Hope he does, because he just looks so small and foolish.
But, democrats will claim it’s Obama’s leftover economic policies that had people spending big money during Xmas.
Trump can say, “Ok then take credit, but just wait till next year.”
One of my lib co-workers at the State Department tried to tell me the great things happening with the economy and taxes are because of 0bama. He was serious. I couldn’t help bursting out in laughter.
“Very little is being said in the MSM about this holiday season being one of the best ever for retailers.”
There can be no question now that the economy has been artificially held down for YEARS due to government interference, and a corrupted media.
The stage is set for an economic EXPLOSION, the likes of which we have not seen since the 2nd World War. Only this time, they will be making TV’s and extended cab pickups, instead of tanks.
The Obama lost decade is over.
Thank you President Trump!
I just saved $2,000 on Federal Taxes by switching to Trump.
The Trump Effect....
“The Trump Effect....”
definitely. as soon as i heard amazon/fedex/ups/etc and the rest could no longer guarantee delivery by Christmas, I knew what was up: massive Christmas shopping season due to economic optimism ... I said to Mrs. Catnipman: Trump Effect!
I know a few deluded ones.
They’re all state gov-co drones.
It is because of 0bama. All he had to do was leave.
AND would have blamed Trump if all economic news was currently bad.
