Target is latest retailer to think 'being like Apple' will stop showrooming
Consumerist
Retailers continue to make changes to their stores based on the notion that, like Apple’s retail sleek and busy retail locations, if they can just get customers to futz around with products in the store long enough, they’ll eventually buy something right then and there, rather than buying it cheaper online. Target is the latest to give this idea a shot in its electronics department.

FacilitiesNet
Fire protection systems generally have long life cycles, but as with all building systems, there comes a time when they need to be replaced. Sometimes a code, standard, or other regulation may dictate this replacement. Other circumstances may also determine that the system needs to be replaced, such as when parts to keep the system up and running are no longer available.

At the cutting edge of environmentally advanced cooling
By Andrew Gaved
RAC Magazine's recent Cooling Industry Awards once again provided refrigeration and air conditioning suppliers the opportunity to demonstrate their environmentally advanced innovations. We have realized over the years that each annual crop of entries provides a snapshot of best practices in the sector, largely focused on the U.K., but increasingly throughout Europe and the rest of the world. Furthermore, studying the range of award winners often reveals particular themes as the industry responds to the various challenges of legislation, energy and carbon reduction, and customer expectations.

FM: Planning holiday décor
Today's Facility Manager
When planning holiday décor for commercial facilities, a good place to start is with a definitive timeline, budget, theme, and placement plan that will enhance the building and provide a festive atmosphere for employees and visitors. When making any kind of holiday plan, decorating included, the earlier it is put on the list the better. Many businesses want a festive look by Thanksgiving, so as early in the year as possible is a good time to start thinking about how and where you plan to decorate the facility for the holiday season.

FastCoDesign
Fetid with grease, a wrinkled hotdog rotating endlessly underneath a desiccating heat lamp. The slime green nozzle of a Slurpee machine, clenching and then heaving its bowels into the bottomless maw of a Big Gulp. Sound familiar? All of these iconic hallmarks of the 7-Eleven experience might soon be a thing of the past, thanks to a new store redesign that attempts to emphasize healthier living.
