We feel increases in orders may start around October 6th, the first weekend of October.
Slow down the week of Halloween and gain strength up to Thanksgiving, then go crazy thereafter....
Does that sound about right?
I think the hesitation is going to come from the high fuel prices (yes I know they are not that high compared to Europe) and I think the tightening mortgage market and the resulting instability in the stock markets will also cause people to think twice.
As we all know, a internet consumer thinking twice is a bad thing.
So I think your going to see people waiting till the last minute to do most of their holiday shopping.

Not to get political, as I'm niether a Democrate or a Republican but yet a Capitalist, let's hope the politicians don't screw up the sales by killing the Xmas spirit...
