Brick & Mortar Retailer Fight Back

Kohl’s, Macy’s, JC Penney, and Destination XL all reported growth over the holiday season. The demise of brick-and-mortar stores is not ordained.  Target too is seeing robust performance. Their forays into ecommerce, coupled with their physical distribution network are appearing to paying off.  The future may not become a dystopian duopoly of just Amazon and Walmart. There will be competition, but which and who?  In dirt one can find gems.
