    Will baristas crack under Starbucks’ mobile ordering pressure?

    The service industry is already struggling as the labor force hasn't been able to recover to keep up with consumer demand. It would be appropriate for Starbucks to listen to their staff and update their technology to ensure a positive consumer experience.

    Simon says J.C. Penney is ready to become a 21st century retailer

    It's interesting the stake that Simon is putting into the retail industry as a whole. They are actively working to influence the market rather than being a passive participant as a landlord. But their success will not be measured immediately. This is a long-term play. Give them credit, they are showing optimism and confidence like no one else, even if it seems to be too early to celebrate.

    Nike decides to ‘just do it’ in the sneaker resale market

    This is a great move for Nike. Those who are loyal to the brand, true sneakerheads, are looking for ways to get access to limited release sneakers. It doesn't need to scale in a big way to be successful. But it does provide another service to their customers who are already extremely active in the secondary market.

    Nike says goodbye to more longtime wholesale partners

    One of the most important things you need to know is that Nike is a brand. This is built into their core vision and mission. As they continue to look for new ways to grow the brand, it has become critical for them to protect their brand. You see that in their growth of digital and DTC brick and mortar locations where they can control their brand image. They have little control over the way their brand is displayed with their wholesale partners so this move makes them stronger above all.

    Whole Foods wants to help consumers eat mindfully

    I applaud Whole Foods for bringing this partnership to their customers. Every brand is looking for ways to engage their customers and there is always more that can be done beyond their doors. I don't think that anyone can argue that this supports the values that Whole Foods was founded on and supports the interests of their customers.

    Can a celeb endorsement fuel a Payless reboot?

    I agree that Payless isn't a relevant brand and hasn't been for some time. But with significant corporate restructuring, there's sure to be some new blood within the organization that can think more creatively than the previous leadership.

    Automated checkout ‘will be everywhere’ sooner rather than later

    Amazon has already announced publicly that this technology is available to license from them.

    Automated checkout ‘will be everywhere’ sooner rather than later

    Good point. The pandemic has not accelerated this rollout directly (as the question suggests), Amazon has been working on this technology for years. The only difference is now there is more traction on contactless payment and Amazon has the technology (and the capital) to bring it to market at scale.

    Is suburban retail (malls, too) primed for a comeback?

    The social dynamic of having retail restaurants and other entertainment found in urban settings would still be attractive post-Covid over the less complex settings found in a suburban setting. The change this article is anticipating would occur over years with much intentional and guiding design of the shopping experience and lifestyle of a given area.

    Do grocers need to get better at planning for weather-related disasters?

    I agree with this 100%. Those who are Texas residents know the value of a corporate leadership like this in the community. This drives BRAND LOYALTY which is an opportunity that other retailers and grocers aren't capitalizing on.

    Whole Foods gets a lot right and wrong

    Crowded aisles full of carts and pickers is not unique to Whole Foods. This is happening to all grocery stores that are working to integrate physical stores with e-commerce convenience. Until the retail format can be designed to separate fulfillment with customer experience, this will continue to be an issue. It's an opportunity for designers to solve. But first, we need to get through this awkward transitional phase.

    Will pandemic-fatigued couples love Lowe’s and Whole Foods’ Valentine’s promos?

    The initial idea is definitely worth the campaign for this upcoming Valentine's day. As the pandemic continues, everyone is looking for different ways we can celebrate safely with our loved ones. Other online companies have jumped into this realm and have offered creative activities for "date night." Happily is one such company that provides date boxes complete with food, drink, and game options which are also integrated with digital tools to enhance the experience.
