RetailEmail Seasonality Meter: With Valentine’s Day references ending this past week, we’ll see Presidents’ Day references through the middle of next week and then the slow build up to St. Patrick’s Day and Easter in March. There were no references to New Year’s last week, so stay tunes for a New Year’s Season Finale.
