WHAT'S HAPPENING: New earnings report for Bed Bath and Beyond

WHY IT MATTERS: We might be seeing the end of shopping as we know it

The average consumer is shopping more online than at the mall, and the trend is starting to have a dire effect on large iconic retailers like Macy's, which recently said it's closing 100 stores. Rivals like JC Penney's and Sears are also shuttering shops and letting go staff. Soon, we may have a harder time "going" shopping … because there will be fewer places to actually "go" to.
