I am pretty gobsmacked by these results. I certainly never thought of it in those terms, but data is data.

If the study is correct, then Amazon is in a tight spot. The company really does need to raise its prices, but it effectively already has had a price hike,...

This isn't a new concept. It's generally called "endless aisle" and on the surface it seems like a no-brainer.

What's not a no-brainer is deciding where to actually fill the order from - a nearby store, distribution center, or a faraway store. The wrong decision can cause domino-like problems across...

I kind of think we're asking the wrong question. The real question is "Can Target make money with this service?" If Amazon is barely profitable, and their entire ecosystem is built around home delivery, can Target do the same while remaining competitive or under-pricing them?

If I were a shareholder,...

Boy, that's not going to go over well with customers at all. If I were CVS, I'd have a ball with that in my advertising campaigns.

I wonder a couple of things: 1) What is the actual tax percent Walgreens pays? 2) I can't believe the income it earns in...

ABSOLUTELY.

It's hard to say where they should start. In fact, I'd like to say establishing standards for the retention of customer data, but the way things have been going, by June there will be new issues to tackle.

Three cheers for the NRF for doing the right thing here!

Oh God...are we seriously going to look at yet another industry to teach us how to do what we already know we have to do? Last time round, the industry decided to be more like the airline industry. We all know what a success the self-service model was (not...

I think Cathy Hotka has had it right all along. We desperately need an ISAC in retail, and it should include retailers, banks and (I guess) major developers.

Heartbleed is bigger than retail, that's for sure. Everyone and their mother (literally!) has wireless connectivity in their homes - and Cisco...

The problem here is that there's a presumption that people remember what Loehmann's stood for. They don't. That was the issue in the first place. It just fell off the relevancy radar.

I did a very small sample poll among friends I had that used to go there regularly when...

Some of these products are actually owned by "agribusinesses" now - which was uncovered when they battled against GMO labeling in California, but some don't...and it's a great idea in any case.

To me, this is the best sign I've seen of Target returning to its roots yet. This is...

This is a tricky one. It may well interfere with its core brand identity, but that identity (fast food) is under fire anyway because of its lack of nutritional value. I think it's clear the company is changing and this sentence really says it all: "Free Wi-Fi and earth...
