Logan Milleman bounced down a hallway of Wills Eye Hospital on Wednesday, showing off his new ID badge: Master Logan, Commander in Chief. He was in good spirits. His right eye has been cancer-free for almost five years. The 6-year-old's parents, Robert and Jeri Milleman, trailed behind him with three large Kohl's bags filled with stuffed-animal toys they had brought for the children in the hospital. He has come a long way. In 2009, Logan's right eye was diagnosed with retinoblastoma, a rare pediatric cancer that is blinding and life-threatening.

Sunday dumped a snowfall no one was expecting. Tuesday brought a batch everyone knew was coming. But both bursts had the same effect: draining dollars out of the one sector for which every day between Thanksgiving and Christmas is a big deal - retailing. The snowstorms emptied shopping centers and malls on two days of an already shortened 26-day shopping season, thanks to this year's unusually late Thanksgiving. The one-two punch meant stores in one of the nation's most populated metro areas cut staff hours, extended sales in some cases, or redeployed idle workers to stock shelves during the lull, while snowplows cleared lots so shoppers might eventually rush back to play catchup.

They were next to each other for only a few moments in the Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts before retired Kohl's department store maestro Jay H. Baker ribbed Macy's chairman and chief executive, Terry Lundgren. "Will you stop killing everybody?" Baker asked Lundgren, whose command of Macy's through the rough economy has turned him into a retail rock star as competitors vie to keep pace with his profitably growing $28 billion corporation. "Give everybody a break!" Lundgren smiled widely as he and the former Kohl's president, kindred spirits in trying to boost student interest in retail careers, warmed up for a night of schmoozing and celebration.

BET Investments, the real estate investment group owned by Toll Bros. cofounder Bruce E. Toll, plans "a walkable mixed-use project" at what is now Granite Run Mall after the firm's successful bid of $24 million for the shopping center near Media. "We are very excited about the deal and its possibilities," said Michael Markman, president of BET Investments, in Horsham. New York-based Rockwood Realty Advisors conducted the sale. Banks represented by CW Capital Management foreclosed on Granite Run in 2011 after national mall owner Simon Property Group and partner Macerich Co. stopped paying interest on $115 million they had borrowed to buy the place, figuring it wasn't worth that much anymore.

Red, white, and blue, whether worn monochromatically or all together, are the shades of high fashion this summer. These positively patriotic primaries are preppy on Ralph Lauren polos (did you check out the U.S. Open merch tent?), rough-and-tumble Americana on Harley Davidson T's, and exotic on Mondrian prints. Couple our penchant for stylish stars and stripes with a rising sense of American fashion pride and - bang - we're saturated in Independence Day deals popping in our national colors.
