Nordstrom Deal Doubts Take Retail Down a Notch

Retail stocks were on the decline to start the new month on Monday, Oct. 2, as worries over the holiday shopping season soured deal talks for Nordstrom Inc. (JWN - Get Report) .

Seattle-based Nordstrom sank more than 6% after insiders said talks to take the retailer private could be in danger of failing, according to the New York Post. Banks have reportedly been reluctant to fund the deal due to expectations for a weak holiday season. The bankruptcy filing of Toys 'R' Us in September also fueled worries over the health of the retail sector.
