In this week’s Omni Talk Fast Five Video, sponsored by the A&M Consumer and Retail Group, Firework, Trigo, Sezzle, and Silk, A&M’s Jonathan Sharp and Michael Prendergast joined Chris and Anne to discuss:
- Their mutual admiration for Walmart’s Salesforce partnership and how Walmart is positioning its technology services.
- Starbucks going national with DoorDash and whether it signals the start of “the third place” being fully replaced by working from home.
- Whether Rent The Runway selling on Amazon is shrewd or just plain desperate.
- Trigo’s first U.S. store that debuted this week with Wakefern.
- And closed with a “there’s more to the story than there appears” take on Portillo’s decision to make all its drive-thrus cashless.
There’s all that, plus Big New Yorkers, exchanging services for something other than money, and the grossest things any of them could realistically imagine finding in a box of Legos.
Be careful out there,
– Chris, Anne, and the Omni Talk team
