    In this episode, guest host Jill Standish of Accenture chats with Jaryn Bloom, group president of retail at Michael Kors, about the new customer experience, re-imagining the physical store, and why the future success of retail may lie in its roots.

    In this episode of WWD Voices, part of the Retail’s Responsible Reset Series with Accenture, hosts Evan Clark and Arthur Zaczkiewicz get the latest from Dennis Mullahy, chief supply chain officer at Macy's Inc.

    The bad news? The supply chain isn’t going to untangle anytime soon. The good news? Mullahy promises Santa will indeed make it to 34 Street this year.
