Retailers post mixed sales in Nov.

NEW YORK — The holiday shopping season got off to an uneasy start as consumers took advantage of big Thanksgiving weekend discounts and then pulled back, leaving retailers with mixed sales results for November.

As retailers reported their sales results Thursday, warehouse club operators like Costco Wholesale Corp. and discounter Wal-Mart Stores Inc., which were able to keep crowds coming with special offers, proved to be winners. But plenty of others, particularly mall-based apparel stores including Limited Brands Inc. and teen retailer Wet Seal Inc., had disappointing results.
