FedEx Corporation (FDX) – The Wall Street Journal discusses in an article that some retailers, including Eddie Bauer and Pacific Sunwear, are blaming FedEx for holiday delivery delays.

“FedEx is experiencing a backlog that is delaying standard shipments by several days or even weeks. All online merchants are affected, and not just PacSun,” Pacific Sunwear wrote in an email Monday to customers. “Destinations in the northeast United States are being impacted the most.”

A message on Eddie Bauer’s customer service phone line Wednesday morning echoed the same concern, according to the report.
