Keeping you informed is one of our goals at The Motley Fool. So just in case you missed it, here's a recap of what happened during the week of 11/6 -- 11/10 in the retail sector, as reported from our best and brightest.

We started off the week by returning our weekend movies to Blockbuster (NYSE:BBI). Our own Rick Munarriz is known not to be a fan of Blockbuster (he prefers a certain red envelope mail-order movie slinger that will remain nameless), and he didn't applaud its narrower loss for the quarter. But he does point out some "outside the rental box" thinking the company is using today.

We also learned that OSIRestaurant Partners (NYSE:OSI), purveyor of great steaks at Outback Steakhouse and other enjoyable eats, wants to take itself private. Nate Parmelee thinks the bid is undercooked and needs to be sent back to the kitchen.

On Tuesday, Wild Oats Markets (NASDAQ:OATS), the other natural grocer that no one seems to be talking about, let us know how things went last quarter. It's certainly not growing as fast as some competitors, which we will talk about later.

Last Friday was a bad day for Red Robin Gourmet Burgers (NASDAQ:RRGB) because its stock price fell 26%. I wrote about what happened during the quarter and then took a look to see if, at these lower prices, the company may be an investment bargain.

In other news, Home Depot (NYSE:HD) decided to use its stores to cash in on the growing HDTV sales trend. As Rick pointed out, it's only a seasonal thing for now. But with its huge reach and bargaining power, could this be a sign of things to come for the retailing giant?

Although there was an article about Whole Foods (NASDAQ:WFMI) just about every day this week, I decided to save it for last. Alyce Lomax and Jeremy McNealy covered the earnings release and the conference call, respectively. Then Salim Haji waxed poetically about how Mr. Market may be getting into one of his moods again. And Alyce finished off a very interesting week for the natural and organic grocer by reporting on John Mackey's self-imposed pay cut to $1 now. Alyce says there's no need to feel sorry for him, though.

Woah! That's today. Better check out the site to see what's going on.

So that's the week that was in retail. Tune in next week to see what Foolishness our best analysts will have in store for you.
