After a steady growth for the last two decades, the retail industry in North America experienced a negative growth in 2007, which can be attributed to the subprime crisis and the gradual slowdown in the US economy. The slowdown can be attributed to the high-energy prices and the prevalent credit crunch following the sub-prime market crisis. However, this is expected to be a temporary phenomenon and sales are expected to pick up from 2009-10 onwards.
