Dot-coms still hope for a 'sizzling' holiday

New York — The blizzard that struck the Northeast, along with snows in other parts of the country may help light up the holiday season for e-tailers and catalog operations.

Although Christmas is still 10 days away, the early part of this week effectively marks the season's wrap for most catalogers and e-tailers, save express delivery orders for procrastinating shoppers.

So far, many reports indicate that sales in the direct-to-customer channel have sizzled, making this season bright for the direct marketers. But that's not been the case across the board, as some operations continue to struggle for their numbers.
