In today’s Omni Talk Retail Fast video, sponsored by Microsoft, the A&M Consumer and Retail Group, Takeoff, Sezzle, and Groceryshop, Chris Walton and Anne Mezzenga:
– Shared mutual distaste for Walmart’s new rewards program for Walmart+ members
– Were somewhat split on Bloomingdales second “Bloomie’s” store
– Discussed what the Meta and Jio WhatsApp partnership in India could mean for the future of text commerce in the U.S.
– Questioned what again seems like a desperate IPO-incented move by Instacart to get into big and bulky delivery
– And closed with a look at Ulta’s new in-store merchandising strategy
There’s all that, plus Lily Tomlin, Panera tuna, and Anne’s favorite pumpkin-shaped memories.
