DAYTONA BEACH — The holiday shopping season is make or break time for retailers every year, but more so this year because of the coronavirus pandemic.

While U.S. retail sales are expected to rise slightly this holiday season, e-commerce giants are expected to gobble up the lion’s share. Foot traffic is forecast to be down for brick-and-mortar stores.

Steve Weinreich, owner of the independent Total Entertainment Music Store at 501 W. International Speedway Blvd. in Daytona Beach, hopes that won’t be the case for him.

“The holidays, that’s our make or break,” he said. “The month of December is always our biggest month and I don’t think this year will be an exception. It’s

‘She wrote with gusto and a touch of magic’

She made this seem natural, almost incidental. But she was seeking, I think, to make contact with somebody who had never known her as a man. She was, in a sense, being reborn. A few months later, lunching together in the Randolph Hotel in Oxford (another of her cherished cities), I asked her tentatively why she had undergone this ordeal. She gave her soft laugh. “Because I’m a show-off! I’m Welsh!”

Her identification with Wales (via her father) was another passion: an image of Wales that reflected something of her own nature: a Celtic fluency with words, the whiff of subversion and separateness. “Not just a country on the map, or even in the mind,” she wrote, “it is a country of the heart, and all of us have some small country there.” Her study The Matter of Wales was written, like most of her books, as a woman, but

Amazon delivery tax? Ground shipping fees proposed in City Council

Chicagoans who have flooded Amazon and other online retailers with orders during the pandemic to avoid in-person shopping trips would pay for the privilege of that convenience under a “ground delivery tax” proposed Monday.

Ald. Patrick Daley Thompson (11th), grandson and nephew of Chicago’s two longest-serving mayors, wants to impose a $1.25 tax on packages with a “cumulative weight of 50 lbs. or less” and $2.50 for packages tipping the scales at more than 50 lbs.

Packages contained “prepared food for immediate human consumption” would be exempt. So would packages containing “solely prescription and non-prescription medicines, drugs and medical appliances including, but not limited to tampons and sanitary napkins, insulin, urine testing materials, syringes and needles used by diabetics.”

To avoid a collections nightmare, the ordinance states: “It shall be the duty of each seller of tangible personal property sold at retail and delivered to a location within the city

Iowa turkeys Corn and Cob, the lucky birds who will appear at the White House’s annual turkey pardoning this year, made their public debut at a Monday news conference at the Willard InterContinental hotel in Washington.

Staying at the hotel ahead of the presidential pardoning ceremony has become a running tradition for the fortunate fowl.
