The notion of a retailer hiring a few housewives to work the cash registered during the busy Christmas season is as dated as the term “housewife” itself. With the relentless growth of online shopping — and the logistical infrastructure that supports it — the practice of up-staffing for the holiday season has morphed into a complex puzzle.
