Content we didn’t get on the AI bandwagon maybe as much as we should have this year for that conference but but I don’t know it’s kind of interesting but but Ann I got some travel notes I need to share with you okay yeah get our voices limbered up here before a day full of interviews yes panel moderation we got three panels today and probably five or six interviews we’re gonna bring you guys but I got a bug to pick with the hotels that put the towels over the toilets that that is a that is a bug or a bone to pick bone to pick a bone debugging right here a bug in my Bonnet whatever it is basically you’re just frustrated I don’t like that I’m not a big fan of that why what’s wrong with that it’s just doesn’t feel like my bath things I put on myself.
After the bash I just I just don’t like it oh this is like getting back to your concerns about like poop spray right like the spray after the toilets like you have this theory about like the spray coming out this is like early early in our partnership you gave me some sort of discuss we had some sort of discussion and you shared this like data with me about how like the spray from the toilets when you flush them like gives off some surgical yeah yeah anyway but you had a bad you had a bad shower experience this morning too my shower was just the ceiling in my shower is progressively leaking so I just kind of had to do this weird like Dart around the like dripping water remains from the person showering in the room above me that were falling on me in addition to the sour water so things are going great on me talk fans let me tell you we are so ready for today the Philadelphia downtown Sheraton and which is where.
We’re staying the luxurious Philadelphia downtown Sheridan yes when your soap is called Gilcrest and somes and it’s a classic bottle Gilcrest and soaps really doesn’t add anything for me like I just I’ve heard of that brand I mean only because we’ve stayed in the Sheratons those are Marriotts or something before but actually I’m a big fan the last two hotels you stayed in actually have the pumps instead of the um the bars of soap and I’m a huge fan of the pumps in both the shower and uh like especially for the hand soapy thing but but just like disgusting like the Ampersand doesn’t add anything to me for the brand you know what I mean that the stones yeah just yeah all right let’s do this show uh today’s Fast Five headlines are brought to you in partnership with our friends at grocery shop grocery shop continues to expand their lineup of keynote speakers announcing that CEOs from Kroger Tropicana aho delays USA and eat the change will all be taking the main stage this September and what’s even greater is that list of course is still growing awesome aside from their main.

CEO Walmart launching an internal generative AI testing tool Overstock making a bid for Bed Bath and Beyond’s assets Uber rolling out not right Sharingan but car sharing yes I know a story near and dear to your heart but we begin today with news from Nike that’s right Chris so headline number one Nike is planning to return to DSW this fall according to retail dive the news comes just a week after Macy’s announced that Nike would also return to quote key locations and quote uh and its website with Apparel bags and gear if you recall Chris Nike pulled back on its DSW partnership in 2021 as it pursued a more direct to Consumer sales approach in which it also exited additional retailers like the aforementioned Macy’s and Urban Outfitters Urban Outfitters yeah I didn’t realize I guess so yeah it was yeah uh well despite requests Nike did.
Not respond to questions from retail lab about why it’s returning to DSW and how this impacts its d2c strategy strategy energy going forward Chris this is also the a m put you on the spot question yes so Aiden wants to know Chris is Nike’s return to DSW and wholesale a short-term play to navigate slowing sales during recessionary times yeah or does this signal a flaw in their theory that a bigger d2c business will translate directly into higher margins for Nike I actually I’m gonna go on I’m gonna not I’m gonna not pick either option A or B and okay I’m gonna say it’s neither oh what do you think the reason I actually think this this I think this whole thing shows that Nike is playing an omni Channel mass is doing a master giving a master class on omnichannel retelling okay how come because if you look at the timing of.
This announcement yeah or the initial pullback yeah it’s 2021 yep what’s happening in 2021 the pandemic yep so Nike knows they can pull back their wholesale distribution yeah reset their base without any comp risk in 2022 because they know all the sales in to happen digitally so they see what transpires in 2022 and then they go okay you know what now we know exactly where we need our wholesale distribution interesting you know so we can be smart about the partners we pick and the other aspect of that is you know Macy’s and DSW want them really bad yeah for sure after not having them for that past year so that gives them negotiation leverage as well so I think this is just a natural extension of a smart strategy from Nike from the get-go it’s brilliant brilliant in my mind and the best part I am yeah the cop is already built into 2024 now like they’ve got easy comp now going into 2024 right it’s huge right yeah that’s really smart Chris I mean I think that I I hadn’t considered that element of it but I do think that yeah it’s definitely that makes sense in terms of like the motivations for the back and the fourth and they’re Nike so they can do this like I think that’s another thing that we didn’t we don’t talk about here is that this is a unique brand that’s able to pull back and kind of hold all the cards and not not every brand is able to do this I’m I’m also curious like how.
Much returns played into this because when you look at Nike going direct to Consumer like they don’t have a lot of stores and they you know if you’re a Nike member you get free shipping and free returns and in most cases it’s Footwear like they’re not applying any like volumental technology right now to fit so you’re still ordering you know two three pairs of shoes and then shipping two or one or or however many back and I’m curious like that’s that’s not cheap especially when you’re talking about you know big boxes and that kind of thing we’re at home delivery world like that was the kind of thing that kind of came to mind yeah and I think that also it’s interesting to see like the categories that they’re going into so Macy’s they’re just doing like apparel and Footwear which makes sense for the Macy’s customer.
Um I’m curious what the the actual shoe like I think DSW is more appealing to me because it’s a Shoe Play not just an apparel play which I think is a different uh case too and one of the biggest complaints that I have I think from the Nike store experiences that I’ve had lately is that there’s just done enough product on the floor to really get it to really have that full Shoe Shop experience which you’ll get at DSW too yeah right and you’re kind of hitting at the point too and it’s kind of tug and cheek in inm’s question I’m guessing too like the the more margin from DTC yeah it just doesn’t exist right right like that’s been proven out you’re not gonna make more money just going direct to Consumer versus the wholesale Channel unless you’ve got something really really cooking and smoking so the rest turn Factor yeah probably a thing and yes that definitely helps ameliorate that the other thing too is like all the Overstock like what are you doing with all the Overstock that you don’t sell and to pull out of a player like DSW seems like a crazy play like people are not shopping Nike’s app or nike.com the way that they are used to going in and getting the deals at you know a DSW or even even maybe a Macy’s in some cases and it’s a different customer too like they get they get let’s be honest they get the Bargain Basement nice Nikes for the most yeah.
Yeah there’s no like you’re meeting a different customer at a different price point than you are through your direct to Consumer channels most likely right 100 all right headline number two this one’s interesting Stitch flicks has named a new CEO also said stitch fix not stitch flicks that sounds sexy according to retail dive again Matt bear Macy’s Chief digital officer will take over the CU CEO role at Stitch fix from Katrina Lake on June 26th they could return to the helm where it had returned excuse me to hum the company for the past six months upon the abrupt departure of the company’s former CEO Elizabeth Spaulding bear joins after stints at Macy’s and Walmart and takes over after Spalding had created a purchasing option that allowed Stitch fix customers to buy directly from its site in stark contrast to its original.
Operating model in the past several months however Stitch fix has removed away from the strategy and according to retail dive has been quote restoring an emphasis on its style-led box service and focusing on profitability over growth and quote and yes what are your thoughts here you like this move what does it say about either Macy’s and or Stitch fix you know I I’m focusing on Stitch fix here and I think that the key point to focus on is if there’s a time for Stitch fix to become relevant again now is the time if there’s a time if there’s a Time big if yeah but I mean I think you look at so many companies like reinstating return to work policies a lot of people haven’t been wearing you know clothes they have a new wardrobe about going back to work and and so I think it’s going to be interesting to kind of start to see you know if if like newly another clothing subscription service that’s really taken off from you know the Urban Outfitters and anthropology team like if Stitch fix.
Can kind of use this time with this new CEO to reinvent itself to become relevant again but I think that the the key things here are going to be how they differentiate how they do that it’s clearly not in selling the apparel like they thought like they tried over the last few days it’s a Marketplace it’s about figuring out the right mix of product and people and I think like a partnership in this case might make sense for them to be doing I actually even like I would love if you could see Stitch fix go and partner with somebody like a farfetch like who’s who who’s taking like high-end some luxury goods and really kind of bringing that luxury Consignment experience into a returnable re-wearable like clothing experience to really kind of capture that Niche that especially that next Generation customer that wants this like quiet luxury experience but can’t you know afford to get into that as a as an ownership stake they can get into it as a rental stake um I think something like that could be really unique and inventive I don’t know that Macy’s Chief digital officer is going to be the one to like come up with.
Some of these ideas but I’m curious what your thoughts are yeah I don’t know I don’t know man that’s a crowded space I don’t know if I don’t know if I can buy it at but you know my thoughts are my thoughts are a couple fold on this like first of all let’s hit the Macy’s side of this like to me there’s a lot of leadership change going on at Macy’s now you’ve got a new CEO coming on board yeah because Jeff Gannett announced his retirement uh you’ve got the chief digital officer leaving who was supposed to be the architect of the big digital strategy which was the marketplace yeah it was there can’t three years yes so it’s kind of like why aren’t you seeing that through how is that doing yeah is this a Harbinger for more bad earnings to come for Macy’s I think you have to ask that question now the six foot side right I think you’re right it’s like it’s a it’s a tough like even as you’re talking about it’s like it’s tough to see how they win in the long run like far-fetched my thing would be like why does farfetch need them to do that right like couldn’t they do that on their own and then it’s a wholesale pivot to resale to which could maybe is a way to take this but but let’s get back to to Matt bear too so um you know first of all his background and as we talked about on the show is much better than the previous CEO yes I mean we kind of we kind of predicted that the CEO was going to go out in a flame when she got hired well she was only a six month hire yeah so she was.
Like a temporary no no she was a hire and then Katrina late came in oh for six years right so friends so so we kind of predicted that was going to happen but then my other thing is let’s talk about Matt for a second so my first impression of him is okay like I heard him speak at shop talk I was kind of like meh but then the other thing like in the green room I don’t know if you remember this but like I just turned his badge on us and I was like dude on us are you on me particularly yeah cause I was walking by he like turned his badge I’m like dude come on yeah it’s a green room yeah I’ll turn your badge in The Green Room everyone knows each other you’re supposed to be in there and by the way we do what we do I know who you are yes so take it down a peg but you know with that said I talked to my friends at Macy’s my sources they say he’s a he’s a good guy he’s a smart guy yeah he gets e-commerce really well but to your point is that going to be enough to transform Stitch fix which it seems like it may need ultimately at the end of the day but I think he’s probably a good guy to reset the table get it going on its right footing again given the old school business model that they originally started yeah but you know so they’ll get some they’ll get some better operations going some more efficiency here but so.
For that I like it but I still don’t see the long run for stitches I still think I question this higher a little bit because I still think you have a customer acquisition problem yeah you have to get customers back and you have to get the next generation of customer and there’s nothing unique about Stitch fix that is doing that right now so no matter how good the app is you know how matter how good the digital experience is like if you can’t get customers to come back to the platform with something that differentiates you like you’re not going to survive and so I think that to me I think is something we’ll have to see how the digital and marketing teams are working together at Stitch fix to really give people that reason that Stitch fix exists and the other part too is we’ve heard a lot under the hood from our sources too over the years like there’s been a lot of questions about the AI and the actual AI being done in The Styling the actual data science and The Styling versus the actual physical Style Wireless the actual people stylist them not being happy yes you know maybe I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s selling like hey AI can be the way to change this it might be and maybe it could be.
Like that’s a whole nother way to transform it so yeah who knows we’ll see all right let’s go to headline number three so Walmart has launched a new internal generative AI testing tool speaking of AI uh according to chain storage Walmart is rolling out the Walmart gen AI playground in early stage internal generative AI tool where employees can explore and learn more about the new technology Cheryl you know I hope I’m saying your name right Cheryl executive VP for new business and emerging technology at Walmart Global Tech announced Walmart gen AI playground in a LinkedIn post this week saying quote a key benefit of the playground is that there will be various gen AI models available to try out all in one place enabling our Associates to see the difference in how each model reacts to the same prompts and quote Chris yes what do you think of this one oh man and I’m all in on this one I I mean I am so all in on this so we’ve got to interview with David Lee boots and Microsoft the sub brief of nuance coming in two weeks and by the way fans 1700 people have already registered so if you’re not part of that party get on the party but my favorite part of that interview yes was when I asked him the question you’re in a lot of retail executive boardroom conversations yes what separates the retail executive from who.
Gets it from those who don’t yes and he said it was basically what’s in this headline which is they’re giving their teams the license to experiment and the tools to try to understand AI yes and so that’s what this is about they this shows me that Walmart gets the punchline to the joke of how you need to start incorporating AI into your business we’ve been experimenting with it it’s fun it’s interesting it makes your job more interesting yeah and at the end of the day like I wouldn’t be surprised if McMillan is employee number one trying to use this tool I would hope so it works and I hope so too yeah and I would give him the credit that he probably is yes for sure I mean I agree I think that it’s number one it’s just getting people using it it’s fun like once they once you start to catch on like I think this is a technology that is is intriguing for people they’re curious about it they’re hearing about it in the news and so I think that like this is a very smart of Walmart to be like hey people we’re gonna give you these like subscriptions to the and access to this like World quality AI gen AI now go see what you can do with it and you know what who’s gonna you know who’s gonna.
Win from this is Walmart yeah because every idea every process that every employee tries to make more efficient at Walmart using gen AI That’s all Walmart IP so they’re basically paying their employees to you know just test testing create and come up with new things that will make the business run faster and will potentially save the business millions of dollars once they up update their processes which is a great point so for all those people listening to this working in a retailer thinking about dabbling with these tools if you’re the expert in your company at doing this be very careful about how much you’re doing it and how much you want to do it at that company because there’s a good chance you could spin out that tool and create a new business all by yourself before giving it over to your company like a Walmart to Target anything and them taking all the value from it yeah you getting probably like a pat on the back at the end of the day but then you have to be a tech hustler then you have to be like a tech vendor Hustler but hey so are you ready for.
That challenge that’s the big challenge right all right headline number four Overstock wants Bed Bath and Beyond’s IP according to retail dive overstock.com has offered 21 and a half million dollars for the intellectual property via what is known as a stocking horse bid did you know about that before I never heard a stocking horse yeah I’d heard of it but I mean probably like that’s probably like a business school term that you hear but like what’s a stocking horse well and it’s funny you should ask because a stocking horse bid means that overstock’s offer yeah will set the minimum threshold for any additional bids so so like is it an actual horse like a stock is there like a stocking horse yeah and look out there’s a stocking horse over there but that’s what I mean is it like a pace Setter is there a horse stalking us do we need to get a restraining order it comes from it’s like gift horse in the mouth like it’s right this is what I mean yeah like I kind of want to know I don’t know people if you have any background please but anyway yes it’s like the the horses running along the beach like we talked about yesterday uh overstock’s offer sets the minimum threshold for any additional bids which must be submitted by noon on.
Friday to the U.S bankruptcy court for the District of New Jersey an auction if needed will then occur at 10 A.M Eastern okay on June 21st according to court documents Overstock only wants Bed Bath and Beyond internet properties mobile platforms business data and its trademarks and intellectual property the offer does not include any of Bed Bath and Beyond stores no surprise there yeah is there there with Overstock and bed bath and what do you think you know I do I think if there’s a player to come in and get the the drop the scraps the table scraps from Bed Bath and Beyond I think Overstock makes a ton of sense I wonder how much business there like how much product they’re already buying from Overstock bed Beyond already anyway I think if you look at like capturing those Bed Bath and Beyond customers like there used to a deal Overstock does like memberships and other kinds of things.
You can do away with a 20 off like mailers that Bed Bath and Beyond it and still get that customer who’s like oh yeah this is great I can still get you know these this bed sheets set for 20 off of what I would have paid to retail and so I think that they are uniquely positioned to really capture the customers to provide them a higher quality level of service and I think that you know when you also look at like who’s doing e-commerce well in this space overstock’s been doing this for a long time so it just makes sense to kind of further extend their their product catalog and um and just see like how they can continue to build the business but what do you think you this is your territory yeah I agree like yeah no thank you for that yeah no I was gonna say when I was the VP of Home Furnishings for target.com the two retailers that I always look to beyond the the you know the usual suspects which is Walmart Amazon and Wayfair yeah was Overstock in bed bath yeah like that’s who it was yeah and so I actually think there’s a lot here and particularly for 21.5 million dollars which isn’t very much the IP that I particularly like is the college business like that Bed Bath and Beyond knows how to do the college business well yeah that’s a great point and so you could take that Tech figure out how to do it Market in the same way you could even stand up the same website for the most part just yeah running and operating the website and that’s a high margin business every single year yeah that alone makes this deal worth it then you’ve got your wedding registry as well.
As a part of this so like and and for the most part Bed Bath and Beyond gets cachet Brands yes so if you can keep the cashier brands in your portfolio for for the wedding registry side of the business that deal is gonna pay off and that’s a lot less than imperative companies have spent on Acquisitions like you think of Walmart’s Acquisitions and how much they spent targets back in the day with like cooking.com and stuff like that this is a pittance compared to those yeah so this is I think it’s a smart move over stock always surprises you overstock.com is getting an overstock.com deal on buying bed bath that’s what I think you’re saying yeah exactly right exactly right and that’s the thing too people don’t understand like Overstock as much I wish I wish they would never have created that name because it’s actually just a good e-commerce site at the end of the day yeah absolutely you can get everything on there like yeah you think it’s not overstocked really yeah it’s just great stuff it’s all it’s all like drop ship Market available Goods yeah all right it’s way Fair let’s go to headline number five Chris Uber is now doing car sharing according to motor Incorporated shout out I think that might be the first time we have had a motor Incorporated first and last I’m guessing yeah maybe not yeah maybe maybe not easy you found this article where you scan and motor Incorporated I’m not I’m not scanning motor incorporating.
Okay so Uber announced it will soon bring its car sharing service to North America after having offered it for a few months in Australia it’s going to be offered alongside the company’s existing ride hailing and food delivery services Uber car share is what it’s called it will allow owners to rent out their vehicles when they don’t need them from the user’s point of view the Uber app will allow them to view available vehicles in their area select one that fits their needs and budget pickup and drop off will then be arranged with the car’s owner which means that unlike traditional rental cars users will likely not be able to take a car to a different city and leave it there at least let’s hope not fingers crossed man that would not be good uh Uber Karcher will be not become available across the continent all at once with a company targeting Toronto and Boston as the two starting points for this service in North America Chris yes you into the Uber car sharing idea what do you think about it oh man it’s Unique you know I think it’s an.
Interesting idea uh the new Cycle’s been slow and I think recently because you know honest I’m trying to find the bridge here for Omni Channel retail but I’m gonna do it okay I’m gonna make the effort here I think it’s a cool idea Boston is a unique starting point to me I mean I remember when the first you brought a business school before uh one of the first business school cases I ever read was on Zipcar okay which was a car sharing company that started in Boston yep and it’s a tough tough business model to make work um and so you know again to me so you know with that aside the questions wasn’t me for Commerce and Retail so I think the cool thing about this idea is that if it takes hold it means more people have access to cars yes more people have access to cars more cheaply which means more people have disposable income which means more people can get to places to shop and then spend more so for that reason I like it I tied it together I think the difference between Zipcar and Uber car share though is that Zipcar.
Where were cars that were owned like by Zipcar so that that’s the you’re removing that major point of capital investment right you are you know you’re leveraging what people have that’s sitting in their driveways which is sitting in their driveway or at work there it’s a good portion of the time we’ve already seen companies do this well like turo but I think the difference here with turo is that that’s a different app that’s a new customer you have to get on the app and I think this move is brilliant for Uber I think it’s going I do think there’s some enemy Channel tie-ins because I think about how much Uber’s increased investment in their delivery yep in their ubereats platform they’re in the ride hailing platform and you have people now already going to that app I looked up they have 130 million people have used Uber in the last month in the US like that’s crazy so it’s it’s something that we’re used to going to and now we’ll see car sharing as another option I think there’s huge benefits when you start to look at corporate like visits too like instead of going you know we see so many people at the airport waiting for their Ubers last night if you could just go into the parking lot and get a car right now instead of waiting for that Uber for 10 minutes like there’s applications there but finally I think that the other.
Application here that we aren’t talking about is how Uber as a as an Uber driver you are all you also have access to this right so not only can you use this as a driver when you get the hours that you can work but it’s basically now allowing you as an Uber driver to monetize your car while you’re not driving yeah and so it’s like what we’ve seen you know with doordash and Uber trying to make these cars be on the road doing things as much be as efficient as possible going as much as they can now you get full utilization of that vehicle for multiple drivers like you you have always on there’s no friction now yeah or the Uber driver the other part of this 2nd that you maybe think about and then we can close it up is like this is going to make the labor shortage more more challenging for retailers yeah because now I can potentially be a gig delivery driver without even owning my own car exactly and that’s crazy so that’s going.
To make the workforce even more flexible and it’s all in one app like wow yeah that’s big time so yeah retailers actually pay attention to this because you could be working a lot harder to find that employee to stock your shelves Uber is also doing white label delivery services for all these retailers so now you as a retailer you have access to all of these drivers at every standpoint but you got nobody to work those stores you don’t the stores are going to be the problem right right that’s still the issue all right let’s go to the lightning round all right Chris question number one this was this one made me chuckle out loud in the public yeah you wouldn’t tell me what it was either you were writing it in the airport restaurant and you were laughing to yourself yes because I wanted to do there are so many ways all right so Google has now added a feature to Google Lens that will allow you to upload a photo of questionable areas of your skin like moles rashes Etc it will do an image search then and try to help diagnose what’s wrong with you based on that image of your skin so basically it’s WebMD with images uh how soon after trialing this can I expect to get a text from you in the ER are you there right now are you transporting yourself.
Um telling me that you have some sort of rare skin condition that you found online the better question is that if I’ll end up in the ER because maybe maybe the technology works and it actually you know stops me from going to ER freaking out about something maybe that’s true how quickly will I use this probably the same day yes yes exactly exactly question number two Krispy Kreme is looking for its first ever Chief donut dreamer and if given that job what would be your day one agenda oh man so many things I mean taste testing that would be my day one agenda would be like we gotta remove the lard aftertaste how do you make this like donuts be so irresistible to people how many ways can we get Donuts in people’s mouths like but taste testing first test and strategy meeting that would be your T1 agenda all right and taste while strategizing taste while strategizing just eat donuts all day oh my God Donuts yeah so amazing I like that idea all right Chris uh Westfield is exiting its famed San Francisco Center Mall what is your favorite memory in or around that mall I gave you the out here in case there’s.
Like an Irish bar across the street that you like there is Johnny Foley’s right up the street so for sure that’s one watch the World Cup 2002 there and we actually got shut in there because you went there the night before the game was at four eight four a.m so they had to close and couldn’t let anyone out and they couldn’t serve any beer until 6 a.m the next day but I stayed there so that’s my favorite memory favorite memory of Westfield mall was actually when we were running store the future yeah we went and checked it out they had like some incubation lab kind of thing yeah on the top floor yeah interesting yeah that was cool I mean it is such a beautiful Mall it was really sad to hear about this the old get the Gap Flagship used to be across the street in the flood building which was super cool too which is no longer there so sad trip.
Down memory lane you just gave me and yeah all right last one Pat Sajak says he would retire from The Wheel of Fortune next year what is your earliest earliest Wheel of Fortune memory probably my grandpa talking about how he wanted to watch Vanna White that’s what he called Wheel of Fortune he did not it was like he was just so excited to watch Vanna and I I didn’t realize that the show was Wheel of Fortune or anything like I remember sitting and watching with my very young and my grandpa just Vanna White man he was allowed to turn those letters yeah wow yes well he’s not the only one in there’s many people across the street she’s not retiring she’s not yet she has not announced if she’ll fall oh my gosh I feel like Pat and Van are like that’s it you got to go out with us I’m surprised I didn’t coordinate the announcement yeah I really am you know you get yours Vanna you’re your own woman you don’t need Pat Sajak yeah yeah no you’re that I thought the show was Vanna White I mean go on with your bad results yeah yes all right happy birthday today to Helen Hunt Ice Cube and to the woman who said by the way is there anyone on board who knows how to fly a plane as Elaine Dickinson from airplane about
