We really enjoyed this week’s podcasts. In the Fast Five, Chris, as usual, goes deep on the stories of the day including Bed Bath & Beyond, Walmart, Amazon, Costco, and more. Then Anne and Carter join Chris in the After the Five to play a lighting-speed round and to answer unknown questions from Chris.
Let’s just say, Mark Hamill somehow comes up.
Be careful out there,
P.S. If you enjoy our podcasts, be sure to check out our new Spotlight Series. This week we interviewed Slyce CEO, Ted Mann. It is a great listen if you want to learn more about visual search and how it could change retail.
P.P.S. We will be in Atlanta next week for Home Delivery World. Please hit us up on LinkedIn or Twitter if you will be out there too.
P.P.P.S. Thanks as always for your wonderful support. Please encourage others to check us out and to subscribe by sharing your thoughts on social media.
