It’s the most wonderful time of the year: when consumers nationwide can find out that their credit and debit card information has been lost to hackers right when they’re trying to get all of their holiday shopping done. This week’s unfortunate victims? Consumers of women’s clothing retailer Bebe, found in malls nationwide.
Apparently, people haven’t been spending their unemployment checks at the mall in recent months, because a large number of prominent retail clothing and food chains — from Abercrombie & Fitch to Winn-Dixie — are being forced to shutter stores in the wake of the economic downturn.
A Spanish toy company has a new doll out that allows girls to play-breastfeed. Girls put on a special haltertop with daisies over their nipples and draw the doll in when it cries. When the doll’s lips press against the girl’s pink daisies, the baby makes little suckling sounds.
