Note from the editor

 
We're taking a break from publishing our daily newsletter due to the holidays, meaning this will be the last issue of the year. But worry not, we'll be back with more news shaping the retail industry on Jan. 4.

In the meantime, grab a piping hot cup of hot chocolate, wear your fuzzy socks and take a look at our pieces on the winners and losers of Black Friday, what's left of Sears' legacy and a look at forgotten mall stores. Also, keep an eye on your inbox for some special edition newsletters from Retail Dive.

On behalf of the Retail Dive team, happy holidays!
