Macy's disappointing holiday sales is less about the consumer and more about department stores' relevance these days, says former CEO and Target executive Gerald Storch.

American stores had a great holiday. So why are their stocks getting killed?

Macy's says same-store sales during November and December were up just 1.1 percent. The department store chain cuts its sales and profit outlook for fiscal 2018.

It was a robust holiday shopping season, but some retailer's comp store sales growth numbers are disappointing investors.
