National retailers are projecting a better Christmas season this year as compared to last year. But locally we're hearing conflicting results. Noelle Fredland with the Old Mill District says foot traffic is up: “The trends we've been seeing is 60% up over last year and some up by 80-90%. I would say about 40% are neutral ground, either matching last year's numbers or slightly below.” Chuck Arnold with the Downtown Bend Business Association says things are down slightly: “Year over year it's a little slower than last year. A lot of sectors have made a turn, but I think retail is tending to be a little late on the recovery at this point.” Arnold says they have seen more foot traffic downtown in the last week.
