8/25/17 Podcast – Whole Foods Price Cuts, Sears Struggles, How Mom-&-Pops Use E-Commerce

We begin by discussing Michaels’ recent earnings beat, and how vertical integration in their picture framing efforts has helped them along. Then, obligatory coverage of both Whole Foods’ price cuts and Sears’ continued decent, including more store closures. We close with positive news from a revitalized Family Dollar under Dollar Tree. Our interview guest is Sydney Anselmi, a small business consultant who discusses how small mom-and-pop retailers are using e-commerce to grow the reach of their existing brick-and-mortar establishments.
