Walmart is mostly strong in dry goods grocery, and HBA. I hope they stay that way from my perspective, as we thrive on their lack of running good perishable departments. It comes down to higher skilled labor to do it right, which they do not want, and committing the...

With all the tools available for the consumer today to get the best price, it is amazing anybody can stay in business and still make a profit. Shopping is a high-tech scavenger hunt, and retailers are trying to figure out how to effectively price their products for the holidays...

As with all pizza places for me, I am a willing to pay extra for quality and actually have some ample toppings to go with it. There are too many pizza places pushing the $5.99 deals, and you end up with cardboard tasteless junk my dog wouldn't eat, but...

Greed and the belief that these big companies can miraculously get the impossible done, and they can control the weather are a couple of thoughts. Retailing online is just as fierce as brick-and-mortar stores, and the reliance on weather being perfect, and all the delivery folks showing up on...

Another way to shop is why Echo exists IMO, and who could blame Amazon for creating it? Do I need the time in China, or the weather in Norway? This product enhances Amazon's image and will keep the consumer even more loyal to their website, which any of us...

The goodwill benefit is for the employees who don't have to work, as I'm sure they appreciate the gesture from their employers. Consumers for the most part could care less, as the shopping frenzy never ends. Just look at Black Friday, with fights breaking out over TVs and iPhone...

Again, we are in a world where the Amazon believes that they can deliver to anyone at anytime within an hour. It just can not happen in most parts of our country, as most of it is rural, and costs will soar. There is a reason all these start-ups...
