selling all from Greenfield

The Target located at 27th and Layton in Greenfield closed back in February. Now, everything from fixtures to shelving to food service equipment is available through auction.


It's a shame I can't think of anything I'd need.

Also that it's far away.

We bought the name outright, and he never designed or worked for Target at all. You are correct that we had Mossimo mdse until about a year ago.

translated: we are on the gangway to the titanic and it would be a real good idea to stop and get back to shore?
Not necessarily. If Target invested $7 billion dollars into remodels and other investments, that would explain the increase in liabilities. Sales numbers for this year could be interesting, as I would expect them to go down. With a bad retail holiday season and other signs that those of that actually spend money in the economy continue to have less money to spend, I would expect sales to go down this year for everyone, not just Target.

“'We haven’t had a working relationship with Mossimo Giannulli in over a decade and we no longer carry any Mossimo branded products at Target,' the company said in a statement."

Uh, I thought we still carried until just a couple of years ago when AND and the rest were introduced. Has it really been 10 years?

It's close it was not long after I started and this year will be my 10th year..

Walmart rocking curbside pickup

Cowen noted that the retailer had cemented its position as an industry leader by "aggressively" scaling, to the point where the firm estimates that 11% to 13% of Walmart customers currently use curbside pickup.

Meanwhile, Cowen's report indicates that Walmart is courting a whole new swath of shoppers through its approach. The firm estimated that anywhere from 40% to 60% of Walmart's curbside sales can be attributed to new shoppers.
But, but we're piloting refridgerators and have a half hour goal time* We can catch up in a couple of years with modernization!

*For the unaware Wal-Mart says orders will be ready in four hours unless ordered after 4pm when they will be ready the next day.

To be fair, ours say 2 hours on the site, even though we have to pick it in 30 minutes. But even then, the after 4 pm rule is ridiculous, i can’t believe people expect that to be nice. Luckily Target is actually finally expanding in drive up to all stores so i doubt wal-mart will become that popular with curbside

4pm is a bit much, but it doesn't matter in the end. Target's goal time is trying to cater to the few guests who complain that their orders aren't ready immediately after they place it. (It also acts as an unnecessary and extreme stress test of store processes.) That's a very small minority of online guests. Most wait a few hours to days to pick up their orders. We even have Drive Up guests who order a bunch of groceries who don't show up to get them for a few days. OPU/Drive-Up caters to guests who just don't want to shop in stores for whatever reason and who don't want to/can't be home to accept a delivery more than it does guests who want something right this very minute.

Wal-Mart already is popular with curbside. They're already kicking our ass. Target is playing catch-up from way behind.
