    First, a mea culpa. In last week’s column, I wrote that Dollar General was trying to decide whether it should be purchased by Family Dollar or Dollar Tree. It is, of course, Family Dollar that is up for sale, and Dollar General has been arguing that its buy-out offer is better than Dollar Tree’s. Big apologies for screwing that one up.

    Greetings From Shanghai

    There’s an amazing home textiles trade show this season, one where the optimism and enthusiasm for business, for new products and for new markets is off the charts. Not that most people in the American market would know about it. That’s because the trade show in question is Intertextile in beautiful semi-downtown Pudong, Shanghai, 7,386 miles, as United flies, from Fifth Avenue in New York City.
