Retail's COVID-19 drive-through testing is not going according to plan

Retailers are starting to open drive-thru COVID-19 testing sites
to the public for the first time. Are they ready?

On March 13, the CEOs of Walmart, Target, CVS and Walgreens joined President Donald Trump in the Rose Garden to reveal they would be hosting drive-thru testing in their parking lots. Only five have opened so far - three by CVS, two from Walmart and one by Rite Aid. The slow start reflects the nation's challenges when it comes to providing testing access.

Insufficient supplies of testing components such as nasal swabs has hampered testing at hospitals, according to a late-March survey of health providers from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). With outside labs overwhelmed, test results are often delayed by a week or more.

In most cases, the testing sites opened by retailers have been reserved for first responders due to the test shortages. As a result, coronavirus testing has remained largely unavailable to the masses. retailwire.com

Furloughs Surpass 1 Million With T.J. Maxx Adding to Retail Toll
Employee furloughs in the retail industry are now well over 1 million after the owner of T.J. Maxx and Marshalls, one of America's biggest clothing store chains, suspended its store workers. TJX Companies Inc. said last week that it would furlough the majority of its U.S. workforce at stores and distribution centers. It employs about 286,000 people worldwide, with most based in the U.S.

Retailers across the country stopped issuing paychecks en masse over the past two weeks after shutting down their stores in March due to the coronavirus outbreak. Several of America's largest retail employers, including Macy's Inc., Kohl's Corp., Gap Inc., Ross Stores Inc. and Victoria's Secret owner L Brands Inc., have made the move to save on labor costs and conserve cash while stores remain closed.

More than 200,000 stores have temporarily closed, according to research firm GlobalData Retail, as Americans obey stay-at-home orders to curb the spread of the virus. Re-opening dates have been pushed back as the outbreak worsened. bloomberg.com

Global Trade Sputters, Leaving Too Much Here, Too Little There
The spread of the coronavirus has disrupted global supply chains, leading to shortages and price increases that are cascading from factories to ports to retail stores to consumers. While factories in China have been slowly restarting as the country's epidemic fades, many manufacturers in India, the United States and Europe are powering down, or running at partial capacity.

These disruptions in global trade could grow more noticeable in the months to come, as consumers hoard products and countries clamp down on exports of medical supplies and even food. Shoppers may see more shortages of unexpected products, including laptops, toilet paper and medicines. Some companies could find themselves lacking raw materials and components, a recipe for further financial trouble.

In the longer run, supply chain experts say, the crisis may lead to restructuring - where apparel, electronics and pharmaceutical companies rethink their supply chains to make sure they are globally diversified, and less dependent solely on one location, like China.

"Right now, companies are trying to figure out if they're going to be in business in the next couple months," said Jon Gold, vice president for supply chain and customs policy at the National Retail Federation. "They are completely re-evaluating how supply chains are going to work, what consumer confidence is going to be and what consumers are buying." nytimes.com

Retail sales expected to plunge amid coronavirus pandemic
March retail sales data released Wednesday morning will peel back the curtain on the health of the U.S. consumer amid the coronavirus pandemic. Consensus expectations are for a steep drop during the month due to the rapid spread of COVID-19 in the U.S. Headline retail sales are expected to have plunged 8% during the month, down from a 0.5% decline in February, according to economists surveyed by Bloomberg. Core retail sales, excluding the volatile autos and gas components, are estimated to have fallen 5.2%, down from a 0.2% dip in February.

Within core components, it is expected that spending online and at grocery stores will largely offset the steep decline in spending at other retailers such as malls and furniture, sporting goods and electronics stores. finance.yahoo.com

McDonald's faces class action over 'pervasive sexual harassment'
McDonald's Corp has been hit with a class action lawsuit accusing it of subjecting female employees in its corporate-owned fast-food restaurants in Florida to widespread sexual harassment.

The lawsuit, filed on Friday in federal court in Chicago, says the company fostered a climate of "severe or pervasive sexual harassment and a hostile work environment, including groping, physical assaults, and sexually-charged verbal comments."

McDonald's said in a statement that it was committed to ensuring workers were not subject to sexual harassment. "The plaintiffs' allegations of harassment and retaliation were investigated as soon as they were brought to our attention, and we will likewise investigate the new allegations that they have raised in their complaint," it said.

The plaintiffs, McDonald's employee Jamelia Fairley and former employee Ashley Reddick, are seeking to represent a class of female employees of Florida's more than 100 corporate-owned, non-franchise McDonald's locations. They are asking for $500 million in compensatory damages and additional punitive damages. reuters.com

Will the open office die following COVID-19 pandemic?
The new normal of work exiting the COVID-19 pandemic may mean the much ballyhooed open office won't be up to snuff. Here are 4 reasons why COVID-19 may nix the open office:

1. Your company may be over offices (and not just the open ones). The great work from home experiment scaled dramatically in the COVID-19 pandemic. Guess what's better than the cost per square foot in an open office? Not having an office at all. CFOs are already pondering what percentage of employees could work from home on a more permanent basis.

2. Open floorplans may not seem safe in the new normal. Those bullpen desks mean you're about two feet from about four people. You may miss your coworkers, but you're not going to want to be too close in a post-COVID-19 world.

3. Collaboration depends more on technology than proximity. Yes, some teams benefit from open office floor plans, but many did just as well without one. The productivity returns on open offices are spotty at best. There's a much easier business case for video conferencing systems.

4. Open offices kept human resources too busy. I can't necessarily quantify this, but there is anecdotal evidence that open office floorplans led to more politics, middle school-ish behavior, and annoyances. If you caught an HR person in a weak moment, they may note that complaints fell as soon as employees evacuated from open offices. zdnet.com

These robot-powered warehouses could save grocers,
But first they need to survive the coronavirus pandemic

British online supermarket Ocado built a buzzy business around helping supermarkets survive online. The COVID-19 crisis has become its trial by fire.

The robots are mesmerizing. Inside a warehouse in Erith, on the outskirts of East London, more than a thousand of them glide across a vast steel and aluminum grid. Each is the size and shape of an office copy machine, topped with stubby antennae and a shining neon-green LED.

This warehouse, or customer fulfillment center (CFC), as logistics pros call it, is one of the most sophisticated and automated on the planet, one that can handle many tens of thousands of orders a week. It belongs to Ocado, a pioneering British online grocer that is positioning itself as a white knight for the beleaguered grocery sector - and possibly other industries too - offering to help supermarket chains compete in an automated age.

Ocado's robot-powered warehouses thrum with activity on ordinary days; since the coronavirus crisis erupted, they've been in roaring overdrive. The pandemic has given the company a chance to prove it can keep an online grocery business humming, even when its human workforce faces unprecedented strain. fortune.com

Over 500,000 Zoom accounts sold on hacker forums, the dark web
Hacked Zoom accounts have become merchandise that's sold en masse on the dark web and through hacker forums, a new report claims. According to BleepingComputer, which spoke to cybersecurity company Cyble, there are currently over 500,000 Zoom account credentials being sold, and while most of them seem to stem from earlier, unrelated hacks, some of them are genuine.
Cyble's experts noticed the influx of Zoom accounts for sale on April 1, and were able to purchase 530,000 of them at a bulk price of $0.002 per account. Some accounts, the report claims, are even being shared for free.

These credentials include a Zoom user's email address, password, personal meeting URL, and their host key - a six-digit pin tied to the owner's Zoom account, which is used to claim host controls for a meeting. And some of these account details belong to high-profile companies including Chase and Citybank, according to Cyble, which checked the veracity of the accounts belonging to some of their clients and confirmed they were valid. mashable.com

Rampant shipping delays and limited stock amid the coronavirus outbreak reveal why e-commerce hasn't defeated physical stores just yet
Increased demand for e-commerce during the coronavirus, particularly grocery delivery, is pushing many retailers to the brink, highlighting the infrastructural challenges of a world without brick-and-mortar stores.

Experts said that delays and limited availability for essential items at retailers like Walmart and Amazon show how even the biggest e-commerce companies in the world weren't prepared for a cataclysmic event like the coronavirus.

The pitfalls show how e-commerce hasn't supplanted physical stores just yet.

"I'm confident that by the time stores are allowed to reopen, brands will appreciate the limitations of the e-commerce funnel and pay renewed attention to refining their brick and mortar strategy," Philippe Lanier, principal at the retail real estate firm EastBanc Development, told Business Insider. businessinsider.com

'Top 10 ORC Cases of 2015-2020' - Countdown

#5 (from January 5, 2015)
$25M Hack: 16 different retailers hacked by one cybercriminal group, according to report 
A sophisticated group of cybercriminals has stolen over $25 million by hacking into the infrastructure of numerous financial institutions in Russia and former Soviet Union countries, as well as into point-of-sale systems belonging to U.S. and European retailers. Researchers from Russian cybercrime investigations firm Group-IB and Dutch security firm Fox-IT have dubbed the cybercriminal group Anunak, after the primary malware program in its toolset. Starting in the second quarter of 2014, the Anunak group targeted retailers in the U.S., Australia and Europe with the goal of infecting point-of-sale (POS) terminals with malware that can steal payment card data during transactions. At least 16 possible breaches have been identified at retail organizations - 12 of them in the U.S. - and theft of credit card data was confirmed in three of those cases, the researchers said in their report. According to sources, retailers said to have been hit by Anunak include Staples, Sheplers, Bebe and undisclosed others. networkworld.com forbes.com

Middlebury, IN: Gas Station Employee charged in $100K+ theft of lottery tickets; estimated winnings of $75,000
A Shipshewana woman is accused of stealing more than $100,000 worth of lottery tickets from a Middlebury gas station where she worked over the past year. JoeHanna Marchand, 33, is charged with two Level 5 felony counts of theft. An investigation by Middlebury police and the Hoosier Lottery began in February when Marchand was accused of taking tickets from a BP CornerMart. Security video at the business showed Marchand activating a pack of scratch-off tickets and putting them on paperwork before going into an office and then hiding the pack in her sweatshirt, police said in a probable cause affidavit. When police interviewed Marchand, she said she's not supposed to purchase tickets at the gas station. She got around it, she said, by activating the packs and then returning later to purchase them. But she couldn't provide receipts for the sales, the affidavit shows. A Hoosier Lottery investigator dug into records and found 145 lottery ticket packs were opened at the CornerMart between May 2019 and Feb. 2 at times when Marchand worked. While the business had purchased the tickets from the lottery, they were never sold as intended, the affidavit shows. The missing packs amounted to a loss of $104,850 for the gas station. The lottery investigator also estimated winning tickets from those packs added up to $75,010. goshennews.com

Boardman, OH: Investigators tracked $50,000 of stolen furniture to America's Wholesale Outlet in Boardman
Boardman police are helping detectives from a pair of Cleveland suburbs recover what authorities say was stolen merchandise. Investigators said two truckloads of furniture were taken earlier this month in Walton Hills and Brooklyn. They tracked some of the furniture to America's Wholesale Outlet on South Avenue in Boardman. Monday morning, police went to the store with a search warrant to find the merchandise and load it onto a tractor trailer. So far, no one has been arrested. An attorney for America's Wholesale Outlet released the following statement: America's Wholesale Outlet is a victim of crime here. The company has NOTHING to do with any stolen furniture besides [the] fact that it purchased what was represented as discarded and used furniture for $24,700... all of which we paid for and showed the police department copies of the checks that we paid with. That is the company's business: buying used and scratch-and-dent goods of all kinds. wkbn.com
