In this week’s Fast Five podcast, sponsored by Microsoft, the A&M Consumer and Retail Group, Takeoff, and Sezzle, A&M’s David Ritter and Michael Prendergast joined Chris and Anne as they debated:
- All the news out of Starbucks this week, but most specifically its plans to roll out its community store concept to 1,000 locations by 2030.
- Who made the bigger waves this week – DoorDash with its returns pilot or Uber hinting at becoming a retailer?
- Whether Macy’s website overhaul means anything and if the company has the flexibility in its business model for its associates to become personal stylists.
- The latest livestreaming data and major shifts in sales volume coming out of China.
- And closed with a look at what Twitter Shops means for the future of social commerce.
There’s all that, plus our favorite “chin-fluencer” celebrities, OnlyFans for Chefs, and why we love the idea of Darth Vader providing in-aisle voice assistance while we shop.
