NEW YORK â¿¿ It was big one year. Then, it wasn't. Now it's huge. Cyber Monday is sometimes the busiest online shopping day of the year, but it wasn't always. This year, comScore, a research firm, estimates that sales will reach $1.5 billion on Cyber Monday, up about 20 percent from last year. By Retail Writer Mae Anderson.

NEW YORK â¿¿ This holiday season you're likely to find singer Jennifer Lopez in Kohl's. Pop music icon Madonna in Macy's. And reality TV star Kim Kardashian in Sears. Well, not literally. But you'll certainly be able to find their clothing lines in these places as more retailers look to cash in on celebrity names by carrying exclusive merchandise made by the stars. The strategy can work: After all, who doesn't want to dress like a star? But these celeb lines aren't always a hit: The stars â¿¿ literally and figuratively â¿¿ have to be aligned for them to work. By Retail Writer Anne D'Innocenzio.

NEW YORK â¿¿ Best Buy, Toys R Us, Target, Wal-Mart and other retailers are all offering to match the much-cheaper prices shoppers find online this year. But the retailers all have different rules. Some are confusing. Shoppers will need to be informed in order to take advantage of the price-matching deals. By Business Writer Joe Pisani.
