The best of 'FierceRetail'

          Laura Heller

You see issues of FierceRetail in your inbox each week with the latest in breaking news and features. Our editors work hard to bring you the top news stories, one-on-one interviews and industry insights from respected leaders in the retail industry.

As 2014 comes to a close, we've taken a look back at the top stories of the year in this special Christmas Eve issue. It's a year in review, Fierce style.

From new apps to mobile payment platforms and iBeacons, FierceRetail readers made these stories the most read and then shared them with colleagues and friends.

We'll be taking a brief break from publishing over the holidays. You will find updated news on our website and breaking news alerts in your inbox. FierceRetail will return on Monday, Jan. 5, 2015. Happy Holidays!  -Laura
