Retail Focus 7/20/18 – Prime Day; The Tile Shop Rebounds; Regional Grocers & Digital Channels

We begin the show with our Groundhog Day-like notes from Prime Day, before breaking down how The Tile Shop’s latest earnings impressed investors despite same-store sales being down. We also touch on the IPO of BJ’s, ongoing Rite Aid-Albertsons media coverage, and Hy-Vee’s new last-mile partnership. Our interview guest is Sylvain Perrier, President and CEO of Mercatus, who joins us to discuss how regional grocers can use digital channels to better connect with their customer base.
