Report: Physical stores and technology have strong appeal for 'omnishopper'
Chain Store Age
While the use of technology in shopping is almost universal, brick-and-mortar stands strong, with the "omnishopper" choosing physical stores for better customer service and a faster, more social buying experience. That’s one of the key findings of a report released by MasterCard, which notes that the continued appeal of physical retail might be a contributor to e-commerce's relatively flat growth as a share of total retail sales.

Best Buy to open shops inside of Macy's stores
RetailWire
During Best Buy's second quarter earnings call, CEO Hubert Joly pointed to vendor relationships, specifically store-within-a-store concepts, as one of the key advantages that has helped the retailer increase same-store sales in the U.S. for four straight quarters. Now, it seems, the chain is such a believer in the store-within-a-store strategy that it sought out and reached a deal to open its own branded shops inside of 10 Macy's locations in time for the Christmas selling season.

Energy, hold the cost
NRF's STORES Magazine
Retailers spend nearly $20 billion annually on energy expenses, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Trimming just a little off monthly utility bills can have a big impact: Reducing energy costs by 10 percent can boost an average full-line discount retailer’s net profit margins by as much as 1.6 percent and sales per square foot by $25.

Ants, padlocks, and cyber security
SmartData Collective
Consider for a moment the physical door locks that are employed around the world on every house, building, or car. Over the centuries, increasingly complex locks have been created.

With all the improvement in lock technology over the years, we've certainly eliminated all car thefts, home break-ins, and industrial theft, right?
