Amazon offers cashierless tech to rival retailers. "Just Walk Out technology enables shoppers to simply enter a store, grab what they want, and just go, the installation can be done in "as little as a few weeks." Amazon says. techxplore.com/news/2020-…
Bidets are sold out on Amazon, Lowes and other major online retailers in the USA. Who knew this would be what it took to bring them to the clean-butt-side.
TIL that Sweetwater Sound, the largest online retailer of music equipment and pro audio gear in North America, was originally started as a recording studio that was built by one man in a Volkswagen Bus in 1979. That man, Chuck Surack, still owns the company 100% and works on-site daily. cnn.com/2019/05/20/succes…

PLEASE Retailers! After all this, set a no return policy!
I think all retailers need to put up a no return on toilet paper, sanitizers, wipes, masks, etcetera. Fuck all these assholes that are hoarding stuff and reselling online! This would be a win/win. Retailer's profit, idiots lose money after all this is over because they have to sell at a huge discount! Anyway we can start a petition to get this to happen?
Sephora and Ulta (and all luxury beauty retailers) should throw away all their testers.
I know it is an extreme measure and wasteful. The virus is not going away in 2 weeks, the health authorities just want to control the spread so it does not happen all in a short period of time. The no touch policy seems insufficient given the circumstances.

CMV: High street retailers should share at least 10% of their sales profits with their employees
I've believed this for quite a while and I reckon it would increase productivity, happiness and the overall value of teamwork while at work as well as an extra incentive to encourage sales for the company you work for.
Let me elaborate the title further. Say a supermarket makes £300,000 profit in a month in sales. The supermarket has 100 employees (including management). 10% of £300,000 would be £30,000. Dividing that with 100 employees would mean a £300 bonus at the end of the month. This percentage could increase during the Christmas period

Amazon to sell their cashierless store technology to other retailers: "Just Walk Out"
Amazon's Just Walk Out website. Why does the website look like it was put together from an intern giving no fucks at all? NO FUCKING CLUE, but this shit is about to upend the retail market. Amazon is about to AWS their Go stores and sell their cashierless technology to other retailers. Hope you're not a cashier cause your job is running out of time.
Why is this such a big deal for Amazon? The more stores that use this technology, the more data that Amazon gets on consumer shopping habits. AND HERE'S THE BONKERS THING: this technology will let Amazon collect metrics on everything consumers are doing in a store. They'll get metrics on how often a consumer picks an item up, then puts it down. They'll get walk path metrics to help stores optimize their browsing. Shit, they'll probably come up with entirely new metrics that we're all too autistic to even predict right now. Advertising was already one of Amazon's fastest growing market segments, and now th

PSA to parents. Please don't allow your kids to wander at Target and other retailers during their school closures. There is a reason they want them AT HOME and not in large groups. I've already seen groups of preteens and teenagers running through Target touching everything and just hanging out.
It's a possibility that you don't know they are there or maybe you just want them out of the house. No one wants to babysit your kid and possibly get infected because they wanna play tag or make tik tok videos. The more you know ( insert shooting star logo here) .
Has anyone witness “panic shopping” in other places than supermarkets etc, such as outdoor/survival equipment or hunting or firearms retailers and such?

Maybe Arenanet should reconsider Steam as a digital retailer for Guild Wars 2.
In the wake of their disappointing 4th quarter results, I believe that Arenanet should re-examine everything, including their sales channel. You can see the list of retailers Arenanet currently uses by country at this link. https://www.guildwars2.com/en/retailers/#UnitedStates-physical
My suggestion is that Arenanet should expand their list of retailers to include Steam for Guild Wars 2. Guild Wars 1, afterall, is on Steam already. There is an existing relationship here.
Steam recently hit 18 million concurrent users. Steam has over one billion accounts with over 90 million accounts that are active. Steam is available in most countries worldwide including China. This makes purchasing the game or gems easy no matter where the player lives. Steam offering Steam Cards world wide in various retail outlets gives it an advantage that other digital distributors lack.

Watch out for "new" synths from Guitar Center/other big box retailers.
TL/DR Guitar Center tried to deceive me into buying a used/floor model, won't admit it's not new when I show them the proof, get kinda pissy when I refuse to buy it.
Went to Guitar Center to pick up a Digitone today. Called the dude during my lunch break to see if they had it in stock, he told me he would go check. He came back in like a minute and said he had a new one, the last they had in stock and that he would put it on a 24 hour hold for me.
Cut to me walking in after work, I see it on hold at the help desk and have the guy ring it up. He hands me the box during the transaction and I can clearly see the seal has been cut on the box (the box is pretty much exactly the same as the Digitakt box. He assures me it came like that, but I tell him I want to check it out. I look inside and it looks packed up pretty decently but the cables have obviously been taken out and there's hair and fingerprints on the screen.

What retailers are doing right by their employees during the coronavirus crisis?
Social distancing measures are critical as the coronavirus crisis grows. But retail workers are vulnerable right now. What retailers are doing the right things for their employees? Things like offering generous paid leave, continuing to pay them if stores close, protecting them from risky situations at work, etc. Many people try to make socially conscious decisions about when and where to spend their money. Maybe we as consumers can reward retailers doing the right thing, and pressure the others to follow suit.

discount retailers and brand prestige.
what are y’alls thoughts about brands (kvd, becca, too faced, glamglow, to name a few) whose products end up at discount retailers such as tj/tk maxx, marshall’s, burlington, winners/homesense? does it ruin the “prestige” aspect of these brands, or do u see it as a good ass deal? what about your own experience shopping at these retailers?
personally i LOVE hunting through discount retailers for a good bargain or LE items at half or quarter price. it’s really weirdly fun (crow brain loves a good deal and finding new restocks) and a great way to try out items i otherwise would never even think about (e.g. mid range products for drugstore prices).
on the flip side, seeing brands pour into discount retailers is sometimes a marker of failed launches, poor planning or subpar quality. ABH is an example of this imo, having gone from their palettes being sold out constantly and restocks heavily anticipated, to supposedly LE palettes being dumped into marshall’s within 3 months of launch (rivi

Reasonably priced products and the staff are really friendly and it’s a family run business. If you get the chance to pop in, it’s well worth it.

Retailers and Supermarkets need to do pickup only.
It's terrible having people coughing and sneezing entering the store, touching things on the shelves, then placing them back down, plus standing close to each other in the checkout line.
The risk can be substantially reduced if customers simply order online for pickup, then employees fetch for items themselves around the stores. Once gathered, the employees put it in a dropoff cart where the recipient needs to readoff their online receipt ID number from at least 10 feet away. The dropoff cart is rolled towards the customers. After the customer unload the items, they place it in the corrals. Shopping carts in the corrals are sprayed with disinfectants, then deep cleaned. Afterwards, the shopping carts are returned for reuse of employees. Rinse and repeat. Payment should be done online only through the retailers or the mobile app. Cash is too risky.
I know it's not a silver bullet, but having tighter procedures will greatly slow down the spread.

Q for those at grocery stores, big box retailers etc in U.S.
With all this panic buying going on, I have to wonder: how regularly do major grocery stores and grocery parts of big chains like WalMart & Target get restocked with food items? The high level of buying is surely going to level out sooner or later, but with quarantines being established, one has to wonder about the flow of food across America.
I’m seeing not only staples but produce shelves empty, and it’s been slowly trickling out for weeks. How much is locally sourced from growers and producers?
Can anyone who works in one of these stores chime in on this vital cog in the supply chain? Thanks!

Retailers should triple the price of items being stockpiled by morons, and give the increase to charity so that nobody can say it's profiteering.

International List of Local Fountain Pen Retailers
I thought it would be helpful for the sub to pool its knowledge and compile a comprehensive list of local fountain pen retailers (brick and mortar shops) around the world.
- Even though experienced fountain pen hobbyists may know most of the retailers from going to pen shows, newer hobbyists may be primarily shopping online and not even know a store exists locally.
- It'll be useful for members to see a list of all these shops, particularly if they are traveling somewhere. While it's easy to Google for a shop in a city if you think to do it, this is a way of putting all these places on our radars ahead of time.
- I see it as a way of getting the word out about retailers since so many brick and mortar shops are closing due to competition from online retailers. Online retailers are great, but I think most of us can agree that these local shops are valuable to the FP community.
