Business lunch: how retail is changing :)

Old retail is 80% analog. This consists of: the physical store, staff, customer service training, etc. What you’d expect walking into a Saks or Macy's. And it's about 20% tech: computers, cash registers (POS systems), mobile shopping, Google ranking, apps, hiring social influencers, Instagram, etc.

Today, the retailers that are well positioned, growing, and 'hot' carry the opposite equation: they're 20% analog and 80% t...

54% of people looking for a product go directly to Amazon. That’s not good for nearly anyone in our industry. Amazon takes a 30% cut and keeps all the customer’s contact information (email, tel, address). If you’re a retailer, you can’t operate a successful business giving away 30% of your 50% cut of a retail sale.

If you’re a brand, over the last few year you were probably relishing in selling direct, cutting out the rep commission, and getting 100% of the sale. Well now Amaz...

Saks essentially throws in the towel on cosmetics and moves that department from the first floor to the second. What now greets you? Handbags. The WSJ reminds us that department stores are on the ropes against online competitors, chains dedicated to cosmetics, and changing consumer tastes. Jewelry is now in the basement.

From this past weekend's T Magazine:

(excerpt:)

The Man Who Brought Paris to Dallas

Through his family store, Neiman Marcus, Stanley Marcus introduced French sophistication to Texas and aspirational luxury to America.

The best quote from the article:
Remnants of his idea, that a department store can and should be a world unto itself, have been adopted by countless others in the decades since — from peer institutions to more everyday b...

The headline is scary. The article states less drastically that "comparable store" sales which include stores open a year or more and online sales are down 5%. Translation: Neiman's may need to work smarter to compete online because consumer purchases are definltey increasing there. And don't feel too bad for Neimans: it still had a profit of $3.8 million.

NEW YORK (Fortune) -- Here's what the financial crisis sounds like at the top of the income ladder: When asked how the recession had impacted her life, one banker's wife said, "The waiting list for a Birkin bag is a lot shorter."

Shoppers Go Online to Save Gas Money




This article below from the today's NYT echoes a conversation I had this week with a major tableware brand. The head of the company said that he can see a day when the traveling home goods salesperson will not travel. Instead, the person will do his or her sales presentations over the phone and web. Samples will be shipped via UPS or FedEx. Otherwise, sales reps have to drive to and from meetings, and this gas money may eat up 25%...
