As Christmas nears, retailers in Australia say the lead-up to the holiday has not met expectations. The Australian Retailers Association said the country's retailers had expected sales to reach $38.7 billion this Christmas, but now doubt that will happen. "It will be a solid but not spectacular Christmas with a slight amount of growth on last year," said Margy Osmond, CEO of the Australian National Retailers Association.
