For many people, the end of the holiday season means dragging a Christmas tree out to the curb. For stores, it means throwing out advertisements for doorbusters and holiday deals — as well as dragging Christmas trees to the curb. The final two months of the year are retailers’ busiest, but all of those deals can lower stores’ profits.
