    The Downsizing of Retail

    in Business

Couple that with the JC Penney concept of developing small "stores within a store" and the downsizing of retail is on! Listen in as Bob and Jerry discuss this movement and whether it can save struggling retailers such as Best Buy while also giving the 800-pound gorilla that is Walmart an even bigger slice of the pie!
