Low/moderate-end retailers are possibly starting to see in their sales numbers the ending of the Social Security withholding tax holiday.

Story on Wal-Mart in Bloomberg today:

Will this affect mall owners? Well, it can't help. I don't expect any Wal-marts to close. The expansion of Family Dollars, Dollar Generals, et al. could be affected, though.

Thoughts?
