Neiman Marcus Says Affluent Shoppers in ‘Very Good Shape’

America's most affluent shoppers are capable of spending big this holiday season. They may just require a bit of coaxing. That's the view of Neiman Marcus Group Inc. Chief Executive Officer Karen Katz, whose typical customer is a well-heeled woman. "Her balance sheet is in very good shape," Katz told Emma Chandra on Bloomberg Television. It's "really a matter of how emotionally she feels about things, and she seems to be in a good place right now." The holiday season comes ahead of a potential tax overhaul that has been touted as a way to give consumers a boost in take-home pay. The National Retail Federation said over the weekend that shoppers are already spending more this holiday season in anticipation of a tax cut.

Of course they are. Congress has taken care of the well to do especially well the past 40 years. The rest of America can ---- off.

Dearest Hackers,

Here is your big fat cow to slaughter, now please leave my local used car lots database alone. The majority of us with 10 year old cars are paycheck-to-paycheck, the better "earnings" would be from those dividend re-investment people - particularly those who "can" repatriate their funds but maybe won't.. The kind that spend $400 on an everyday white cotton shirt. Also, I'd really appreciate interruption of cocaine to the East coast to see their television personalities begin to "get real". Not only would you have got their data and they are performing for all of us in desperation and hysteria! Us "lower-class" wouldn't know cashmere from angora, and our shopping doesn't include complimentary car elevator maintenance.

Merry Christmas,

Dear Neiman Marcus,

We would suggest opening employment to a cryptography and security-specific team that recognizes falsified queries in growing sophisticated attempts at data theft, particularly physical means of access. Also, you might want to consider isolating Georgina Chapmans winter line as a "Weinstein survivor". Get Klum and the whole crowd to pose for life size cutouts you can dress in live rabbits. It's security cam footage that can be sold to mainstream media safely! Imagine watching Kim Kardashian petting Heidi Klums bra's ears.. Crass, but most shoppers won't know English from French Angora, let alone capitalizing on a sex predator with cute animals and more sexual exploitation then selling that as celebrity-endearing garbage enables even more market penetration than the NFL employing Janet Jackson.

Awaiting employment,
Not able to afford your products
