    Fast Five | The Costco & Sam’s Hot Dog War, Best Buy’s Virtual Store & Amazon’s Early Cyber Monday

    Fast Five | The Costco & Sam’s Hot Dog War, Best Buy’s Virtual Store & Amazon’s Early Cyber Monday

    In today’s Omni Talk Retail Fast Five Podcast, sponsored by Microsoft, the A&M Consumer and Retail Group, Takeoff, Sezzle, and Silk, Chris and Anne amazingly lauded every headline, including:

    - Sam’s Club’s decision to cut the price of its hot dog and soda combo to an FU Costco price of $1.38.

    - Amazon’s decision to pull its Cyber Monday deals forward to start on Saturday.

    - Best Buy’s ingenious idea of a virtual store to complement its in-store service experience.

    - Shop Premium Outlet’s virtual mall concept that provides a new digital outlet shopping experience towards which we think more and more brands will gravitate.

    - And closed with a discussion on whether or not Anne and I would have any problems with a robot at Sweetgreen making our salads (short answer: not in the slightest).

    There’s all that, plus Kentucky Fried English Pubs, Anne’s favorite high school Adidas wear, and our early rating of how good we think the new 80 for Brady movie will be.

Erica Retail Junkie ,

Best retail news for retailers

I’ve been a marketing executive in retail for over 20 years. I am as you would expect cynical, skeptical, and grizzled as a result. I read everything about retail. This does not make me popular at cocktail parties, but pretty smart about retail. And yet literally every week I learn something new from you two. I don’t always agree but I always love the perspective. I just sent out your podcast to all the exes at my company and marked it required reading.
