Bad sales this year mean bad news for Missouri storeowners, but good news for you and me. Dave Overfelt with the Missouri Retailers Association says we’re going to see some giant-sized bargains this weekend, with goods marked down even more than year-end sales in past years. Overfelt figures retail sales will grow about 2% from last year. Something closer to 6% would be healthy. He blames worries about the stock market and high gasoline and natural gas prices.
