It depends on the customer and demand. My guess is more and more customers are demanding it. But it also depends on the retailer and what they are selling. If they don't compete much with Amazon, then I think they are safe. If I was a small grocer, I...

I think we will continue to see pop-ups. As far as landlords preferring long-term renters, that is obvious. However, better to have a pop-up than an empty location for a month.

Consumers like to see what's new. Any store in a location where there was nothing or even some retailer...

Had the FBI contacted Apple before attempting to log in 10 times without success, we would already have the information. I was originally unsure how I felt about this until i learned about the failed attempts.

Apple intentionally made sure there was no back door BEYOND the first 10 attempts....

I'm skeptical. Chrome AdBlocker is supposed to do the same thing. Unfortunately, one wrong click voids that idea. If Brave manages to get it right, I'm still skeptical. It's like cable that was supposed to be free of ads if you paid for it. Roku is supposed to be...

I don't see this working. People buy electronics online. Best Buy has an old business model that hasn't worked for years. I can see why they are trying something new but I don't think it's going to work. I don't go to a department store for electronics. I go...

Interesting concept, but have you ever been to a bus station? Delivery is one thing, but inventorying the items to place on certain buses will be a nightmare. Does Amazon expect the bus station to protect their items? I've been to the one in downtown Cleveland and I'm telling...

These young moms grew up with stores like Forever 21 and Charlotte Rouse. I think it's wise for Macy's to explore this avenue. I'm not sure it will work, but it makes sense that it would.

My kids grew up going to Macy's. This is still where they go when...

I don't think consumers will see a thing. Prices on Chinese products will remain cheap. The average consumer doesn't even know what's going on in the U.S., let alone China.

As for margins, if CPG companies make more margin I expect they will keep it. Just like when gas prices...

This is a total "knee-jerk reaction" by a company who is so afraid of political correctness that they let one person's post change the course of their company. When I was raising my kids, it was fashionable for Pampers and Huggies to come out with boys and girls diapers....

I think Walmart is being a great example. I respect that it is a recommendation and not a requirement since they can't control the farms and obviously more regulation and requirements would force new practices that will increase costs. I think implementing this as a recommendation is smart. It...
