These 6 retailers are actually thriving

The retail world has been reeling.

Chains including Sears, J. Crew, and Claire's remain locked in a fight for survival while others such as J.C. Penney and Macy's are struggling mightily. Others including H.H. Gregg, Wet Seal, and Gander Mountain, have disappeared, gone bankrupt, or had some locations saved by outside investors.

Most blame these failures on the rise of the internet. That's certainly a reason why many retailers have failed, but not every chain has moved in the wrong direction. Some have proven immune to internet competition while others have adjusted and found a way to compete.
