Retail Focus 7/11/19 – Bed Bath & Beyond’s Earnings; Back-to-School Sales Forecasts

We start with Bed Bath & Beyond’s first earnings call with their interim CEO Mark Winston, and attempt to decipher whether or not the company’s directives have actually changed since the previous call. From there, we look at 7-Eleven’s desire to sell more fresh foods—and with it, their desire to clean up their stores’ image. Finally, we talk about Deloitte’s back-to-school forecasts, figs, and Amazon’s new proposed training initiatives.
