Thanks George, for bringing back the pleasant memories of going to work with my parents. They were not retailers. Dad was an ironworker. Mom had a maid service she set up to serve executives who were being transferred into Chicago to new homes into households that were in the...

A segment of Target shoppers is there for the "adventure." Those adventuresses come in all ages and income groups.

Based on the Prosper Monthly Consumer survey, Target shoppers are also not so peeved as the headline may state. Sure, the press continues to bring up the issue of the data...

First of all, we have to accept that human beings are "tribal" and that they have a certain instinctual love affair with the "bazaar." Sure, they are going to make use of the Internet at an ongoing higher use of frequency. But that's not going to stop them from...

Brian Cornell drove the execution of Safeway's business at a time that Steven Burd was delivering solid operational and financial improvement at Safeway. Cornell was excellent in taking on two or three challenges, and turning them around in decisive order.

Marketing and research live in a system-one (fast) world. Therefore they need to have the resources and systems to help their organizations compete in this environment.

The market is going to perform a great deal more effectively than the bulk of "town fathers." I've had the pleasure of living in a number of suburban areas, as well as big cities across the U.S.

Consistently, when government steps in, developers stall out. Owners of real estate parcels...

Luxury retail shopping and Millennial luxury retail shopping are two separate topics. The later group is not quite scaleable at this particular stage. It is a more likely aspirational for 25-40 year-olds to be seeking $1,000+ purses and $1,500+ pieces of David Yurman Jewelry or higher-end pieces.

Karen Hoguet was...

Some caution here on the strategy. Based on the Prosper Monthly Consumer Survey (January, 2015) only a small percentage of Rite Aid shoppers chose Walgreens as a second choice, preferring instead to cross over to CVS or Walmart when they are not visiting Rite Aid. That could spell opportunity...
