Omni Talk’s 3/16/18 podcasts are live!

Anne Mezzenga and Carter Jensen stepped in and up this week, as I was on a much needed vacation with Mrs. Omni Talk before heading out to Shoptalk on Sunday. They absolutely crushed it too. Anne’s take on Macy’s is pure gold!

Anne’s Fast Five podcast covers Macy’s, Ross stores, recent fundraising by Rent the Runway and Warby Parker, and Walmart’s more pronounced moves into grocery delivery.

Be sure to check out the After the Five podcast too, where Anne and Carter go even deeper into the week’s news and further put the hurt on Macy’s.

You can access both podcasts on iTunes here:

Or you can also check them out on SoundCloud:

Fast Five: Macy’s responds to customer complaints about lines by introducing more lines

After the Five: Anne explains to Carter why Macy’s exec, Jeff Gennette, needs a hug and a new strategy

Be careful out there,
