    So even without Obamacare, it wasn't doing so well anyway? It seems like a weak excuse to blame Obamacare for that.

    All women's clothing retailers have had horrible sales through out the recent recession, Cold Water is one of many at deaths door and this obamacare Christmas may well be the last nail in the coffin.

    It may be, but it takes more than one nail.

    The economy has been softening all year. If sales are down, which I seriously doubt they will be from recent years, then it is more that than obamacare. I further doubt that the ACA will turn any successful business into a bankrupt business. Politics is a convenient excuse for failed business management. Americans are all about "It ain't my fault".

    I think as a nation we should end "christmas shopping" for a year or two. Show that we can control the economy.

    What the hell would that accomplish other than a bad note for the year.

    In case you haven't noticed the economy has sucked since Obama became pres and women's apparel has been one of the hardest hit.

    It's been one thing after another since Obama took over and now this obamacare Christmas will be the death blow for many retailers.

    Obamacare sank my battleship.
