Holiday Story Less Merry For Toys R Us Than For Other Retailers - News - Northjersey.com

Holiday Bread That Made Dozens Sick Was Laced With Drug - ABC News

Sales at Toys "R" Us stores in the United States open at least a year decreased 5 percent during the nine-week holiday period, giving the country's largest toy-focused retailer a worse year than 2013, when U.S. sales declined 4.7 percent. Toys "R" Us released its holiday numbers the same day that sales analytics firm ShopperTrak reported that general merchandise sales excluding gas, autos and food, rose 4.6 percent in November and December. Toys "R" Us executives however, in a statement released Friday, emphasized that while top-line sales declined, gross margins improved, particularly in its U.S. business. While the company did not release its gross-margin percentages, it said that in its U.S. stores gross margin had improved "by over 200 basis points" which is equivalent to 2 percentage points. Sales at international stores open at least a year rose 1.2 percent over the holiday period, compared with a 3 percent decline during the 2013 holiday season. Gross margin was comparable with last year, the company said.

Jan 9, 2015, 10:30 PM ET Preliminary lab results show that a Latin American holiday bread that made dozens of people sick this week in Southern California was laced with a synthetic drug. The Orange County health agency did not identify the drug in a Friday night statement or say how it may have gotten in the Rosca de Reyes bread. Police will now take over the investigation. The agency says nearly 40 people complained of dizziness, palpitations and numbness after eating the bread from Cholula's in Santa Ana. The sweet bread is traditionally eaten Jan. 6 for the Spanish and Latin American holiday of Kings' Day, which celebrates the arrival of the Three Wise Men as told in the Bible.
