I've found a few interesting items that are worth noting regarding Retail. In addition to the basic media coverage:

Retailers Post Disappointing Sales For December on Heavy Discounts (WSJ)
Warm weather and gift cards pinch December sales (Marketwatch)
U.S. Retailers' December Sales Slow on Price Cutting (Bloomberg)
Time to Take Down the Decorations, Earnings Forecasts (Holiday Sales Tracker)
Shopping Bags Half Empty
Retailers Post Disappointing December Sales (AP) 
Wal-Mart Expects Continued Paltry Gains


CNBC video interview of NPD Group’s Marshal Cohen (who said weather was only a small part of the equation and not really to blame for sluggish December sales).
