Rite Aid Corp. VP pleads guilty in $29M kickback scheme
Ex-VP Timothy P. Foster, 65, of Portland, Ore., pleaded guilty to making false statements to authorities and Jay Findling, 54, of Manalapan, N.J., pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit wire fraud during separate hearings before U.S. Middle District Judge John E. Jones III. The judge accepted plea agreements both men hashed out when they were charged in December. The conspiracy spanned nine years, starting in 2001 and lasting until Foster resigned from Rite Aid in February 2010. Foster, who worked for Rite Aid in Oregon, was tasked with liquidating the firm's surplus inventory across the U.S. Investigators from the Harrisburg office of the FBI said Foster and Findling conned Rite Aid into believing the inventory was liquidated through Foster's firm, when in fact the two sold the merchandise to third parties for higher prices than they reported to Rite Aid. Findling then gave Foster a $5.7 million kickback from the $29.1 million in illegal profits they netted from the scam, authorities said. That figure is higher than was estimated when the two were initially charged. The money was stored in paint cans in a garage Foster owned in Phoenix, Ariz., Smith said. The counts to which Foster and Findling pleaded carry penalties of up to 5 years in prison and a $250,000 fine, U.S. Attorney Peter J. Smith said. Both men are required by their plea agreements to pay restitution to Rite Aid. Findling's deal requires him to forfeit $11.6 million as well, Smith said. pennlive.com

Wegman's Tops 16th annual Harris Poll Reputation Quotient study of 100 companies  Wegmans Food Markets, Costco, Publix and CVS are among the highest ranked companies in terms of corporate reputation, according to a new poll.  "The American public strongly believes reputation matters and acts on that belief. This year's results show that more than half of the public actively seeks out information about companies they hear about or do business with, and 36% say they've decided against doing business with a company because of something they learned about its conduct. JC Penney showed the strongest improvement in the past year as its turnaround strategy gains traction. Editor's Note: Making it all that much more important that your LP practices align with the company's culture. And also of special note is that Wegman's has a number of LP positions posted on the Daily's Featured Jobs section.

RFID 'now promising retailers a better ROI' - Case study of UK retailer Marks & Spencer  High street mainstay Marks & Spencer (M&S) is expected to use more than 400 million RFID tags in 2015 and is a good example of a retailer using the technology to improve efficiency in its business. RFID is now able to offer retailers a better return on investment (ROI) than in previous years, said Peacock, thanks to new developments in integrating supply chain data with stock management and customer service. RFID has struggled to achieve widespread adoption largely because of cost. However, it is now promising a better return on investment (ROI) thanks to applications that integrate supply chain data with stock management and customer service.  essentialretail.com

Target Agrees to Pay $3.9 Million in False-Advertising Suit in Northern California
Northern California prosecutors that alleged the retailer charged higher prices than advertised. The lawsuit also alleges the Minneapolis-based company misrepresented the weights of products and failed to ensure that price scanners at checkout stands were accurate.

Wal-Mart to invest $340-million in Canada
Wal-Mart Stores Inc said it would invest about $340-million this fiscal year to expand in Canada, lower than what it had budgeted for last year. Wal-Mart's move comes less than a month after rival Target Corp said it would exit Canada. Sears Holdings Corp last year lowered its stake in its Canadian operations to about 12 per cent, after failing to find a buyer for its holding in the business. Wal-Mart said on Wednesday it would spend about $230-million of the planned investment to complete 29 super centres, including the expansion of several stores to add full grocery departments. The company is also spending to expand its distribution network and its website, walmart.ca. Wal-Mart had planed to spend $500-million in Canada in the last fiscal year. The newly announced super centres, which are Wal-Mart stores with the addition of full-service supermarkets, will boost its super centre count in Canada to 309 by the year ending January 2016. theglobeandmail.com

'Amazon's Trickle Down' impacting the solution providers
With the retailers fighting Amazon for every dollar from consumers and dropping prices to get them in the door, their margins are tight. Consequently, the trickle down is to squeeze the solution providers to such an extent that their margins are as tight as the retailers, if not more so, making the reverse auctions almost a blood bath. So it's not just the retailers that are feeling the pressure, your partners are as well. The issue then becomes when does that pressure actually impact the quality of deliverables. Something even the retailer has to watch out for. Especially when the big push right now and recent announcements about retailers increasing the spend on the customer experience. Just a thought.

Workers feeling the strain - How does this impact shrink? Same Factors Present in U.S.  Employers are optimistic about the year ahead, but these sentiments are not shared by staff, for whom sinking morale, burnout and stress-related absences have spiked. This combination could mean employer efforts to hit aggressive business targets in 2015 could be seriously undermined if current staff are made to bear the burden, according to the fifth annual Hays Canada Salary Guide. Conducted this past November, the Hays survey found that 70 per cent of Canadian companies anticipate increasing business activity in the coming months. Nevertheless, only 38 per cent of employers intend to add headcount during the same period. One-third also admit that their own lack of professional development programs contribute to a shortage of talent. The inability to find qualified help puts pressure on existing teams - 31 per cent report spikes in employee stress leaves and 34 per cent say staff morale has declined. "Looking at the results this year, we have to ask ourselves whether employers are asking too much from their people in a quest to improve productivity and profitability," • Eighty-two per cent of employers say they made the wrong hire, likely due to desperation and a lack of time. retailcanada.ca

ORC's average case value hits $1.6M in 2014
Once again we can't look at 2012 as this was the first year the Daily was reporting ORC cases. Obviously with better search criteria and more ORC laws on the books throughout the nation we saw a significant increase in 'publicly' reported cases over the last two years. Along with this increased media coverage came more accurate and detailed accountings. Thus we're starting to get a more clear picture of the extent of each case and suspect that'll even get better in 2015, as increased public awareness and law enforcement involvement will absolutely impact the reports even further. Leave it to say that even in a generic form such as these numbers represent the average case value of $1.6 million is a significant number and clearly shows the depth and impact of each case where dollars were assigned.

Montreal Chaverim Catch ORC male after Dramatic Chase
Chaverim was finally able to catch a suspected serial shoplifter in a dramatic chase that came to a close as the suspect was stepping onto a train in the Rosemont Metro station. For several months, Jewish stores on Parc Avenue reported the shoplifting of expensive items to Chaverim. Video surveillance would show a man entering with an empty bag, heading into an area of the store where there are no cameras and exiting with a full bag. Chaverim helped the Jewish shopkeepers file several police reports, collected video footage and built a case on the suspect. On Wednesday morning, Chaverim received a call that a man fitting the suspect's description had just shoplifted a store on Parc Avenue. The shopkeeper had only realized that items had been stolen after the suspect left. Chaverim volunteer units were dispatched and arrived on Parc Avenue just as Chaverim received a report of another shoplifting that had just taken place on the same road. The volunteers located the suspect getting on a bus, getting off without the bag, and hailing a cab after he noticed he was being followed. They eventually caught him and retrieved the merchandise.  chabadinfo.com

Port St. Lucie, Fla police see rise in gift card fraud
Fraud criminals are stealing un-funded (blank/vanilla) gift cards. They then remove the gift cards from the packaging, replacing them with other types of gift cards (which contain no value/remain un-funded) so it appears that there is a valid card inside. The criminals then return to the stores and secretly replace the now altered gift cards back on the shelves for unsuspecting customers to purchase them. Once you place money on the gift card (usually involving a funding account number that stays exposed on the gift card packaging), the criminals will "see” the money appear online and can then steal the value of the card before your gift card recipient has the ability to open the packaging. wptv.com

Store security camera flaw has Milwaukee Alderman demanding action  A woman robbed at gun point in a grocery store parking lot. Now that grocery store admits they have a security flaw when it comes to their cameras. It gets worse. Because the cameras weren't working properly, police say they now can't find the bad guys. It happened a month ago at the Pick 'N Save in Midtown off of West Capitol Drive. One city alderman is demanding action. That robbery happened here in the parking lot of Pick 'N Save back in the middle of January. Alderman Joe Davis says there are concerns over security cameras on the building, but also whether the lighting is sufficient enough for customers. Shoppers pack their cars with groceries Monday evening but a month ago, a woman came face to face with a gun. It is becoming a concern as far as public safety is concerned. Alderman Joe Davis says he's received calls about people loitering at Midtown, but nothing like this. Roundy's confirms that because of condensation on security cameras, video of the parking lot was unusable in trying to identify the suspects. That's the responsibility of the business owners and if that's the case we understand and we verify that, it's unacceptable. Roundy's released the following statement to 12 News saying, in part, "Roundy's has made the necessary adjustments to the camera and as with all security matters, our security team has reviewed security measures at the store and will be making any necessary adjustments." If residents are coming here to spend their hard-earned money to patronize a business, I think they should be able to feel safe. The store owners will be meeting with the city next week to discuss any safety concerns. wisn.com

Energy is the primary force behind success and without it mediocrity or failure is almost guaranteed. The ability to move things forward and influence change requires energy and there's a direct correlation to the amount of it and to the degree of success. It's great to start off energized and gung ho about a project or initiative, but it's critical to maintain the energy thru to completion. As one senior executive has said, "there's no bad plan -- it's always a matter of execution" and execution is all about energy. So when you think you've lost your energy, take a break, do something different, and give your mind a chance to re-energize. Because the worst thing you can do is to try to execute without it.
