NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- One of the fascinating areas of the market this year, to me anyway has been the retail space. It's been the tale of some of the older, once well-established brands struggling, while new players emerge in the publicly traded markets.We've seen the once formidable Best Buy (BBY - Get Report) struggling, and rumors persist that the company might be taken private. It has not been that long since it appeared as though the company had a solid position in the consumer electronics market with the demise of competitors such as Circuit City, CompUSA, and many smaller players throughout the years.
