Retailers have been blaming everything and nothing for the recent spate of bad performance. In the end, however, it may be rather simple: For the first holiday ever, online shopping really appears to have hit a point of critical mass.Consider, for example, Pacific Sunwear CEO Gary Schoenfeld's comments in recent earnings guidance, when he said, "Business picked up in the final few days prior to Christmas and then finished the month strong as self-shoppers came back to the mall."The key to his comment was his mention of "final few days prior to Christmas," which coincidentally ties into the amount of time the window generally closes for all but costly overnight deliveries for online shoppers. Enter Costco: As great of a retailer as Costco is (and I do mean great), it has done woefully little online. Its barebones Web site is hardly a destination, certainly not for competitive shopper. And its online sales, while an enormous $3 billion, account for only about 2.5% of revenue.
