In the latest edition of the Omni Talk Fast Five, sponsored by the A&M Consumer & Retail Group, Takeoff, and BrightSign, Anne Mezzenga and returning guest host Oliver Banks:
-Recap rather muted Prime Day results, how the event compares to Singles Day, and what Amazon can do to keep their holiday hopping.
-Laud Nordstrom and Indochino for making one of the smartest partnership moves to bring GenZ and Millennials back to the department store.
-Geek out over the expansion of Alibaba’s Store X concept and wonder if Costco will take the hint and get on the in-store tech train.
-Contemplate the potential suitors (including Amazon) for Morrisons Supermarkets in the UK and what it could mean for Amazon Fresh UK domination.
-Get their 92-year-old grandmothers on board with Marks & Spencer’s new on-demand video experts.
They also cover important topics like which 80’s and 90’s product most deserves a reboot and whether Will Smith, one of the backers of the new Target DTC brand, Jinx, skews more rapper or actor.
