This concept isn't new, but it is important as a reminder to all of us to make sure the skills you are teaching have tangible results. Communication can kill a company if no one knows who is doing what, and when there are orders to go out, it is...

If and when the credit card terminals can accept all these new wallet-type payments with ease, and at a fair rate, then yes, you will see things change. Our store is looking into new terminals, as the microchip credit cards must be in place by 10-1-15, so adding the...

The terrorists have become very good at trying to scare us into total panic mode, and it is sad how we have to worry about every move we make today. I believe that something is going to happen, as we simply cannot control security in every mall or train...

Maybe I have been in this game too long, but free shipping on a $25 order can not turn a profit, and IMO unless their pricing increases on the goods they sell, it will end up costing them money. Everyday I read about this, and I have run numbers...

I think RadioShack is done. The world has passed them by, with online giants taking much of their business, and the product selection has been lousy for years. I feel bad for the employees, but the best ones will always find work. Some of their prime locations will be...

Wegmans is the best I have seen in my lifetime. Quality foods, smiling employees, great selection, innovative, beautiful interiors, great perishables departments. The locations of the stores are always near the high-traffic areas where commerce thrives.

Macy's comes to mind for a quality retailer, Amazon for online is top-notch...

I think Amazon will put a hurting on the traditional book stores, which for the most part are much higher in price than Amazon would be. The kids will love it as Amazon is part of their DNA, so a win-win is what will happen. I went to Ohio...
