    Anthropologie Joins the Fray

    While traditional retailers of home furnishings are still trying to figure out how to woo the Millennial shopper without alienating her mother, Anthropologie is preparing to make a major run at the business. Think of it as Pottery Barn for Millennials – plus clothing. How serious is this effort? Very. Executives from parent company Urban Outfitters Inc. last month said the nameplate will cut apparel from 71% of the assortment to 53% to blow out its home assortment, which now accounts for just 17% of sales. The company is also preparing to roll out new larger format stores, which at 30 ...

    Operation Retail Operation

    With all due respect to Benjamin Braddock in “The Graduate,” I have just one word for you…at least when it comes to retail ceos these days: operations. If you’re looking for the common denominator in the latest round of big-time retail executive appointments, it’s that virtually every one of these guys – and they are all guys – comes from the operations side of the business. Not one is really a merchant. The de-merchandising of the corner office at American retailing is nothing new. We’ve seen this gain traction for years, but up until very recently it was ...

    Fourth-quarter collision

     OK, I’m confused…Have all of the holidays in the fourth quarter become one single event? Almost everywhere I go I see black Styrofoam tombstones merchandised alongside pumpkin-scented candles one aisle down from candy-striped tablecloths. Store soundtracks are equally confusing – Monster Mash followed by Vince Guaraldi’s jazz rendition of “Greensleeves” with the Peanuts gang. And then last week, Macy’s announced its plans to open its doors earlier than ever on Thanksgiving Day – 6 p.m. compared to last year’s 8 p.m. No wonder so many people plan to shop online. Don’t take it from ...

    Market Wrap

    Was it really just three weeks ago? The New York Home Fashions Market was hopping and remarkably gripe-free. Showrooms were slammed Monday and Tuesday, and many suppliers I spoke with had at least one or two weekend appointments, as well as a few early drop-ins the Friday before the official kick-off. Bed Bath & Beyond was like the thousand-headed snake god. Everywhere I went a BBB team seemed either to have just left or was expected to soon arrive. Despite the oft-noted softness in the middle market tier of retailers, suppliers continue to design largely for the middle and up. And ...
