+3% even though it should rightfully be down or at least flat.  We're good at denial.

For the UK this is a good bellwether.

Grim and in our sector very grim.

I think people are going to spend a lot, but it is going to be fueled by debt.  Online shopping will be up 5% over last year; Brick and Mortar flat.  2020 is going to be down.

You'd think.  I keep seeing over consumption everywhere, I hope it is just a Bay Area thing.

There is one week less between Thanksgiving and Christmas this year which could put a bit of a damper on major growth. That said more and more retailers are shifting their Black Friday/Cyber Monday sales strategies to include the whole week of Thanksgiving and even stretching into the week before that.

I think overall growth will be in the 4% range.
