Every day we hear about how digital is going to change the world of shopping, and how the brick-and-mortar stores will be hung out to dry. Maybe so, but there are tons of small business owners who are pretty savvy and are already engaging in ways to enhance their...

RetailWire itself is an online place for us to discuss issues, and it is a tool for all of us to learn from. As a dinosaur in a digital world, we need our circular for our supermarket to generate sales. No matter how you slice it, printed ads will...

Walmart hates nothing more than being outsold on anything, which is why this is happening. Amazon really does well with Prime, and when you add in the streaming and free book service, it is hard to beat. However, if Walmart can deliver on its promise in three days, with...

When you look at past mergers, many of them had the same thought of increasing their buying power to compete against the giants. The problem is it hasn't worked. Jobs were lost, along with a disruption of unique services that made the original stores successful in the first place....

A billion new apps and more coming everyday does not impress me. What impresses me is when I go into Macy's and my favorite sales person greets me and helps fit me for a new suit, or hands me the coupon for 25 percent off that I left on...

Whole Foods is making a big bold statement, that this format will be unlike anything that currently exists. For me it will be interesting to see what gizmo they come up with. Even though I come from the horse and buggy era, I still get excited to see something...

I don't know how this will go, but if you follow their sales, and piles of coupons that my wife gets, I don't need another Macy's. Just this past fall, I bought Greg Norman Golf Shirts, with all the crazy discounts and coupons, for $10.25 each. Bought 15 of...
