Retailers reposition for holiday season

Published on .

Big-name multichannel retailers are ill-positioned for this year's holiday season, according to ``Resource E-commerce Watch,'' a report from research consultancy Resource Marketing. Among 50 leading e-tailers studied on 500 consumer-based measures to determine the quality of their online customer experience, Wal-Mart.com ranked at 49, Kmart Corp.'s ISP BlueLight.com came in last at 50; Toysrus.com ranked 29, Target.com came in at 31 and CircuitCity.com ranked 32. Better performers in terms of customer experience were vertical sites such as apparel, toys and personal care sites.
