Retail Focus 6/8/19 – Five Below Toys Around with New Ideas; GameStop Needs an Extra Life

We begin with Five Below, who, as per usual, released stellar earnings. Of more concern to us, however, are different initiatives the retailer is testing in order to maintain its fast growth. From there, we discuss GameStop, as the company hopes that a SKU revitalization will be its equivalent to a green mushroom. We also talk about the state of cold warehouse storage in the U.S., Barnes & Noble, and Transform Holdco’s attempt to purchase Sears Hometown & Outlet stores.
