In this latest episode of the Fast Five, sponsored by Trigo and Insignia, Chris Walton, Anne Mezzenga, Carter Jensen, and Emma the Intern discuss Walmart’s tough earnings report and what it could portend for the future, Bed Bath & Beyond’s new turnaround plan, one of the worst promotions ever from IKEA, a Pier 1 no one will miss, and Amazon’s move into healthcare.

We also introduce some cool new segments like a “What did we forget?” phone number and the soon to be popular Omni Talk Richter Scale.
