Retail Focus 2/23/18 – Walmart Earnings, Rite Aid-Albertsons Deal, Printing Technology in Retail

Two big stories in retail this week lead off our show: Walmart earnings and the potential sale of Rite Aid to Albertsons. In addition, we look at areas of growth for Sprouts, and why investment in employee training may give them a long-term competitive edge. Our interview guests are Michael Zolot and Jeff Sandler of Brother, who discuss the changing relationship between retailers and printing technology.
