Target will shut down its stores on Thanksgiving Day — and will keep doing so every year. Retailers last year were forced to turn what had become a weekend shopping blitz into an extended event with holiday sales beginning as early as October to limit the number of people in stores during the pandemic. That forced shift during the holidays, however, turned out to be a good move. As The New York Times reports, Walmart, Trader Joe's, and Aldi will likewise close on Thanksgiving. However, opening stores on the holiday was once common practice. Support The Show: https://waynedupree.locals.com See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Walmart is the world's largest retailer with revenues surpassing $120 billion and more than 10,000 locations across the globe. With nearly 5,000 locations in the United States, 90% of Americans live within 10 miles of a Walmart store.No conversation about the role retailers are playing in healthcare disruption would be complete without including Walmart. So to close a thee part series of retail interviews that also included the Chief Medical Officer at Walgreens and Chief Strategy Officer at CVS Health, Keith Figlioli spoke with Walmart's Chief Medical Officer, Dr. John Wigneswaran, for this episode of Healthcare is Hard.Dr. Wig, as he‘s known, says he never expected to be working at Walmart when he was in medical school. And in fact, even though his father was a pediatrician, a career in medicine seemed to be a remote possibility early in life when he was following his passion for music and signing a record deal. But since then, Dr. Wig has led an impactful career with a variety of roles in the pharmaceutical, medical device and healthcare services industries, after more than a decade of clinical experience as a practicing nephrologist.Before joining Walmart this year, Dr. Wig was CMO at Express Scripts. He also served as CMO at DaVita Rx, VP of Market Development at Fresenius Medical Care, and Medical Director in medical affairs at Johnson & Johnson (Scios Inc.), among other roles.Dr. Wig's conversation with Keith Figlioli about Walmart's growing role in healthcare covered a number of topics including:Meeting people where they are. Dr. Wig says that finding ways to fit health care into peoples' day to day activities is a core focus for Walmart. This allows people to avoid rearranging their lives around traditional healthcare structures, and also expands the type of care available to them. Walmart's omnichannel capabilities can provide the flexibility that people need – especially when it comes to complex and costly interventions around chronic diseases. For example, this could include a person with diabetes being educated about healthy foods or a telepharmacy encounter for someone with an educational need.Building community trust. Most retail settings are about more than just shopping, according to Dr. Wig. People go to their local Walmart store for many reasons, some to simply walk indoors for the exercise, but overall for a sense of community. Dr. Wig says trust is becoming much more local and recognizes the opportunity and responsibility Walmart has to be a place where people can turn for their healthcare needs.The power of data. Walmart has long been known as a pioneer in the way it uses data to improve operations and better serve customers. The company can apply that same know-how and discipline to using data in way that can improve healthcare. Dr. Wig says the company is very focused on the privacy and security aspects of healthcare data and determining how to bring its many sources of data to bear in a safe and responsible way.To hear Dr. Wig and Keith talk about these topics and more, listen to this episode of Healthcare is Hard.

And better yet..this was a product that if you “put your whole heart and soul into it” would determine the success of your business and your financial freedom.  And mind you this MLM was targeting women who were typically stay at home moms that were daily struggling with their financial choices in order to make ends meet.  • We're going to discuss what we leared from the documentary, research regarding the hidden challenges or reprecussions  and of course our thoughts. • So let's dive in shall we? • You are the boss of what you choose to do… I actually love that saying and I fully support.  • LulaRoe – an MLM, one of many that unfortunattly has made headlines for negative reasons which we will dive into but let's first focus on who the are and how this got started for our listeners that may not be as familiar with the product/MLM. • Started in 2013 • Name originated from their first three grandaughers. • How it originated… • One of eleven children the founder of LulaRoe – Deanne Startup.  • Met husband and business partner Mark Stidham on a plane. • She already had 7 children from a previous marriage.  Single mom, broke but determined to live a lavish life. • Her idea started from home.  She started making maxi skirts for her daughter and it grew into a business.  She then sold items to her first retailer so they could start a side gig selling her maxi skirt product to their friends for a profit.  Her retailers grew and LulaRoe was born. • Initial investment for retailers…$5000 • Selling breast milk? Borrowing money from fam members? Credit card charges? • Tijuana Skinny's… Deanne took several of the TOP retailers to Mexico to get the gastric bypass surgery to lose weight so they could portray a certain look for LulaRoe.  • Demographic limit…No protected territories • Some people took that box and turned it into a million dollars and some people took that box and put it in the closet because it scared them…???? • Bogus product..leggings soiled with mildew, moisture and foul smell.  Left in the parking lot exposed to elements then shipped out to retailers. • 127,000 sq feet – at that time he was putting stuff outside in cages.  It was exposed to the elements.  Holes in product, tearing of leggings, shorter hems.  They asked their retailers to take a hit to move the product regardless of the issue. • Pushing product than they could deliver at the same rate or level of quality. • Did anyone actually make real money?  Not 10k but realy sustainable money to keep a family moving in the right direction towards financial freedom? • Responses from owners of LulaRoe to Retailers who were struggling to sell:  o You're stale  o Youre in the wrong business • Is this a pyramid scheme? o Policy? o How you make money? o Compensation structure? o How much was spent monthly to buy product? o Buy back policy? • Compleltely went away – facebook groups went off the charts with women looking for representation • Defective products – Facebook group • Class Action Law suits:  • Current payback to retailers at the time of deposition (year date ) 100 Million dollars • Make good refund policy nullified:  • Daniel Kang – friendship – ghost squad.

It's a familiar nugget of wisdom in the home furnishings business that retailers and manufacturers will never quite see eye-to-eye. So common is this observation that it often gets reduced into idiom—Norwalk Furniture president Caroline Hipple's favorite version is “Retailers speak Martian, manufacturers speak Venutian.” Luckily for her, Hipple is fluent in both.Before joining Norwalk in 2016, she had deep experience on the retail side of the business, with 23 years at This End Up and then six at Storehouse. Having been on both sides of the aisle has given Hipple a particularly holistic view of the industry, and an appreciation for the interconnectedness of it all. That's been handy in the midst of the recent supply chain crises. “[To get through this period] I think the best practices are communication, education, transparency and holding hands and crossing this road together whether you're the Martian or the Venutian," Hipple tells host Warren Shoulberg.In this episode of the show, Hipple also explains how Norwalk has rolled with the punches of COVID, shares why the company recently unveiled an ESOP; and offers her thoughts on some of the latest trends in retail.This episode is sponsored by House of RohlLINKS Norwalk FurnitureBusiness of Home

Amazing FBA Amazon and ECommerce Podcast, for Amazon Private Label Sellers, Shopify, Magento or Woocommerce business owners,

If the  lockdown  hit retail everywhere in the world in 2020 and 2021 is big news, there is another interesting trend happening more quietly in ecommerce. TO put it simply: despite the massive growth in Amazon sales - or possibly because of it - ecommerce sellers now have more to lose than ever before from Amazon account suspensions. And they are getting ever more frustrated with the lack of customer data from Amazon.  The natural next step is to set up your own Shopify or Direct to Consumer (DTC) site.
