What's in store for retail technology in 2014?
Personalisation, mCommerce, mobile payment standardisation and social media integration are just a few of the key areas retailers are focusing on for the new year. Industry experts have their say... It's a new year, but not necessarily a new start for retailers in 2014 as they look to continue the evolution of their businesses in order to meet the demands of the modern customer. Editors note: It's a rather generic read but nonetheless one that shows the obvious direction we will all be following. (Source

Retail store traffic up 4% over November and up 8.6% over Dec 2012
Shopping visits continued to grow in December despite headwinds from weather in certain parts of the country, driven by a heavily promotional season. Despite a sluggish start to the month, shoppers left a lot of holiday shopping for the week before Christmas, and traffic picked up significantly. Traffic remained robust after the holiday, as shoppers looked to take advantage of inventory-driven discounts. (Source

Hercules storm could impact 4th Quarter sales by 1%
Hercules flexed its muscle over the Northeast on Thursday night dumping two feet of snow and forcing the cancelation of thousands of flights. Citigroup analyst Oliver Chen, who expects most shoppers to stay home on Friday and Saturday, said fourth-quarter sales could be lowered by 1 percent due to Hercules. He also expects Vera Bradley Inc., The TJX Cos. Inc. and American Eagle Outfitters Inc. to be impacted the most as they have the highest store concentration in the storm regions. According to Chen, Vera Bradley has 36 percent of its stores in the Northeast and 18 percent in the Midwest; TJX has 29 percent in the Northeast and 16 percent in the Midwest, while American Eagle has 26 percent in the Northeast and 18 percent store concentration in the Midwest. Editors Note: Last year it was Sandy and this year Hercules comes along at least after the Christmas push. (Source

RFID set to skyrocket in retail in 2014
Retail continues to take a leading role in adopting RFID technology. Now that the mess created by patent licensing firm Round Rock Research has been mostly swept aside by the slew of patent agreements signed during Q4, RFID in retail is set to skyrocket in 2014. Retailers are embracing RFID for omni-channel retailing, counterfeit prevention, theft reduction, and to enhance brand loyalty by boosting consumer engagement. Today we examine how inventory accuracy leads to omni-channel retailing and some exciting consumer engaging apps. Next week we look at how RFID can be used in loss prevention and counterfeit detection. (Source

American Express fined $75M for "illegal" credit card practices
The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau has ordered American Express to pay more than $75 million to settle claims it charged improper fees and misled its credit card customers over so-called add-on products like identity fraud protection. American Express will have to refund $59.5 million to more than 335,000 consumers over what the bureau called “illegal credit card practices.” It will also have to pay a $9.6 million penalty to the bureau, according to a statement issued last week. The settlement is the latest enforcement action aimed at cracking down on credit card companies, which have come under tougher scrutiny as federal regulators have sought tighter restrictions on hidden fees and penalties.

eBay Investigators Work with A Retailer and Law Enforcement - Leads To Sunglass Theft ring

A theft ring that targeted an eyeglass retailer made at least $580,000 from illegal sunglass sales online within 13 months, authorities said. Officials said the group of thieves — most of them from South Florida — hit stores across the state with distraction thefts, pocketing pricey sunglasses valued as high as $1,000 each. "They were very good at what they did," said Coral Springs Police Detective Karen Hallman, who led the statewide investigation. "You could be standing right next to them and not realize they just took something."

Downing & Downing Presents - The D&D Daily Live in NYC - An LP Broadcasting Event

An LP Industry First!

As most of you may have seen - we announced yesterday that we're shooting the event in NYC live on the internet during the entire afternoon and evening. An industry first! With guest industry executives helping out with interviews and MC'ing for the viewers and general directing of the cameras during the live broadcast.

We have a number of scheduled interviews as you've all seen and we have one or two more we're trying to schedule. And we're also going to be shooting 5 minute interviews of LP attendees - for the viewers and for our LPNN broadcasting at a later date.

We'll have a live Twitter feed for viewers to actually ask questions of the interviewees during the filming and will be talking about it in the upcoming NYC columns we'll be running.

We've lined up Ted Potrikus, EVP Dir of Gov't Relations for the Retail Council of New York to talk at the dinner itself and give everyone an update on the developments around the current racial profiling news that's impacting the entire retail LP industry. A timely and very important issue we felt needed to be covered at the event.

We hope you can make it and for those who can't

You can be there too! And get involved - Ask questions - Or just watch and listen

As NYC comes live to You

With industry leaders and leading solution providers

Thought Challenge


By Will Gage
Regional Loss Prevention Manager
Follett Higher Education Group

The other night, I stopped at a friend’s house on the way home from a long day. He also works LP and was just getting home and it was late – almost midnight – but as we all know, that’s nothing out of the ordinary for retail LP around the holidays. Anyway, we had a quick bite to eat and sat around and caught up since it had been a while since we had seen one another. He has three young kids who were all asleep and of course are all ramped up for Christmas and Santa coming to town. His wife came out to sit and chat with us after our long day. She also brought some toilet paper with her and proceeded to throw it high up to the ceiling fan about 20 feet above the floor. I sat there with somewhat of a puzzled look on my face and then they told me their story of the “Elf on the Shelf”. I had heard of this guy before as I’m sure many people have, but had not experienced it first hand, not like this. Apparently, Sherlock (their kids name for the Elf) comes to the house nightly during the weeks leading up to Christmas and visits to ensure the kids are “being good” for Santa. Sherlock watches over things, sometimes eats leftover cookies, and apparently also “tee-pees” the fans. Well the kids are so into this that they leave gifts for Sherlock – artwork they have made for him, treasured keepsakes, updated Christmas lists, and they write notes with things they want to tell him and/or Santa. Not having kids myself, I read some of their letters and just sat there, laughed, and soaked it all in. But what a great thing. And what a wonderful tradition to build for the kids – certainly something for building family memories. In reading some of the notes the kids wrote, it just made me remember – how truly simple things are when you’re a kid. And regardless of how simple it might sound to you and me, this consumes these kids and it means the world to them. So much so that they can’t even sleep until having everything “in order” for Sherlock and Santa. But it got me thinking – that at the end of the day, and when it’s all said and done – it’s really not all that different from us. Sherlock might have a different name – like jobs, bills, kids, responsibilities, etc. But I think the key to coping with it and not letting it keep US up at night is to not lose sight of the fact that it really is still very simple – if we keep it that way. We just have to figure out how to keep things “in order" to control how much we let daily stress consume us and how complicated we ultimately let it become.

Nobody said life is easy. I can’t even begin to tell you how many times I find myself stressing out over things that happen throughout my day. Generally it’s work related but even family issues catch up with us, especially around the holidays. And I often find myself anticipating what tomorrow, or the next day, or the next week will bring my way. Scheduling interviews, doing audits, partnering with stores, addressing physical security issues – the list is endless and we’re all there. And clearly we all have different “Sherlock’s” in our lives. But it’s important to remember that we have to take some time to “de-complicate” – maybe that’s on our car ride home with some music, maybe it’s thinking about some much-needed time off to come after the holidays, and maybe it’s after we get home after a long day and throw some toilet paper. Whatever it is – even if only for 15 minutes a day – we have to make the time to do it to maintain our sanity and clear our heads. I know what some people are thinking – that it’s much easier said than done. But just try it – try taking just those 15 minutes a day that is your time – nothing that you let stress you out, nothing that you let complicate anything – that’s your 15 minutes. And when you’re done, your next 15 minutes will likely arrive sooner and sooner each time because doing it actually makes the daily grind fly by much faster. It worked for me because I had a splitting headache from my long day, but after my unexpected de-complication courtesy of Sherlock, I drove home without my headache after I took just a little time for myself to simplify everything.

As the years go by, it’s funny what simple unexpected things (and so very different year after year) happen to us that can make us have certain “epiphanies” – trust me – this “Sherlock” moment I had was completely unexpected. I lost someone very close to me this holiday season – someone very close and she was taken way too soon. And I struggle to figure out how it all fits into the “master plan” because right now it just doesn’t make sense and it certainly doesn’t seem fair. But I think we’ve all learned in one hard way or another that the world around us doesn’t stop for our problems, no matter how big. It keeps moving forward and so should we. So must we. But the less we let those problems consume us and the more we can remember to take a little time to de-complicate things and clear our heads, the more we will smile, laugh, and certainly win that internal battle that we’re all faced with. All too often we lose sight of that and forget to find a few minutes for ourselves and before we know it, the day/week/month/year is over and it’s too late. But who knows, maybe if you can be sure to take just a little bit of time this coming New Year to simplify things a bit, de-complicate, and bring Sherlock into your day – even for just 15 minutes – it will help take away some of whatever stress is contributing to your headaches. I hope so, because it certainly did exactly that for me...

The Future Is Looking Bright for the Surveillance Market
Big data’s growth has encouraged demand for high-definition surveillance. According to a recent report from market research firm IHS, the growth of big data within the video surveillance market is leading a growing demand for high-definition (HD) video cameras. IHS pointed out that HD cameras are peaking in popularity because of their video quality, which often exceeds that of legacy cameras. However, as the number of HD cameras surges, the amount of data created every day will potentially increase exponentially. In fact, IHS estimates the data derived from HD cameras will more than double in the next four years, reaching a staggering 859 petabytes by 2017. (Source

Big Data Trends for 2014
It can be said that 2013 was really the year that Big Data seriously took off and went from being adopted by an exclusive group of companies to mainstream awareness. So, what can we expect for the coming year? First of all, as IDC already predicted, the Big Data market will grow to $16.1 billion in 2014 and they also forecast that the Big Data technology and services market will continue to grow at a 27% CAGR to $32.4 billion through 2017. Some big data trends for 2014 include the increased use of cloud services by organizations to help cut costs, companies focusing more heavily on securing their data to protect the privacy of customers and an increased emphasis on making employees more Big-Data-literate, as many organizations are heading for a major skill gap that will necessitate new training.

Sending and delivering the LP message in stores and at the corporate office is probably one of the most critical things one can do everyday. How you communicate and how you deliver your message will determine how they respond and react. If you expect to improve performance and influence change in the stores, then you've got to communicate in their words and their terms. Each company has a message, a mission, and core values and your message should fit all of them and be an extension of them and not an addition to them. This breeds integration and results in inclusion – all of which are important elements of a successful executive.
