Home Alone 3
November 25, 2014I am absolutely fascinated by what CVS is doing and whether it has applications elsewhere in retailing, including home. You may remember a few months ago the retailer announced it was stopping selling cigarettes, arguing it was inconsistent with its mission of being a store where people came to buy products for their health. What's more, it said it wanted to go by the name CVS Health going forward. This was no small concession, mind you. CVS said it was giving up $4 billion in annual sales by stopping the sale of tobacco products. That's some serious revenue ...
November 25, 2014There’s something happening this year that could redefine the holiday shopping experience. It’s not whether stores do or don’t open their doors on Thanksgiving, which of them will or won’t match prices or who wraps up the season with the cleanest inventories. This is the year of The Omni-Channel Holiday – the first time a considerable number of major players have invested in creating a seamless shopping experience across online, mobile and bricks. One of the big keys to the season’s efforts is the buy online/pick-up in store initiative. It not only addresses the dreaded ...

November 25, 2014Everywhere I read, I am told millennials – 18-to-20-something year olds (give or take a few years) – are going to be shopping earlier and more than ever for holiday gifts this year. Take the National Retail Federation’s Thanksgiving Weekend Expectations survey released last week. It says nearly eight in 10 (79.6%) millennials will or may shop over the four-day period – the highest of any age group – compared to last year’s 73.2%. Of these, 22.6% will shop on Thanksgiving Day and 79.9% will shop on Black Friday, up from 71.5% who planned to do so ...

November 12, 2014Since Macy’s announced last month its plans to open its doors earlier than ever – 6 p.m. – on Thanksgiving Day, it seems like all the major retailers have begun announcing their also-early store hour schedules for to the holiday season kick off. And it has been getting me down. I recently came across a news report on the website of NBC affiliate WGRZ Channel 2 in Cheektowaga, NY, that only made me sadder. A mall is forcing all of its retail tenant to open their doors by 6 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day – or be charged a $200 fine ...
