Vendors nervous about the HBC purchase of Saks - fallout
The first read is a mostly positive one, although more Saks stores could eventually be shuttered. But there are still more questions than answers on how the retail operations will shake out after the deal closes. Vendors who are casting a wary eye on the deal are most concerned that Saks will close more doors. Some believe up to 10 of the 41 current Saks stores could be shuttered or repositioned as Lord & Taylor doors over the next several years. There are also worries over whether there will eventually be some centralization of the buying process at Saks and Lord & Taylor. Baker has said some Saks stores could be converted to Lord & Taylors, which means more business for Lord & Taylor suppliers. But he’s also mentioned the possibility of Saks entering Canada with up to seven locations. It’s also possible that Baker could roll out Saks Off 5th outlets in Canada.

CVS combats drug abuse with data analysis
CVS Caremark is evaluating data on prescriptions filled at CVS/pharmacy to identify providers with extreme patterns of prescribing high-risk drugs. Providers who cannot offer a reasonable explanation for these patterns have their controlled substance dispensing operations suspended. CVS recently launched a program that analyzed volume and share of high-risk drugs compared to other providers in the same specialty and geographic region, as well as the ages of patients and their payment methods. they've suspended 36 providers to date. (Source is stepping up a warehouse-building spree - to hit 50% of U.S. pop. with same-day delivery  Signaling the urgency of getting products to customers more quickly amid rising competition from eBay and Wal-Mart Stores. Amazon’s almost $13.9 billion spending binge on 50 new warehouses since 2010. We’ve standardized them in such a way that opening them and replicating them happens very fast,” said Dave Clark, vice president of worldwide operations and customer service. The warehouse strategy carries risk. Fulfillment has become Amazon’s top operating expense, squeezing profit margins and contributing to a $39 million loss at the Seattle company last year. The company said last month that it’s adding more than 5,000 full-time jobs in 17 U.S. warehouses. Those new hires will join more than 20,000 employees. Amazon said it’s also bringing on 2,000 staff for customer service, including part-time and seasonal workers. If Amazon can place fulfillment centers nearer to the top 20 U.S. metropolitan areas, the company could reach 50 percent of the U.S. population with same-day delivery, compared with 15 percent now, according to supply chain consultants MWPVL International.

Ex-Soviet Hackers Dominate Cyber Crime World
If you want to hack a phone, order a cyber attack on a competitor's website or buy a Trojan program to steal banking information, look no further than the former Soviet Union. Two of the five most wanted men in the U.S. for cyber crime are Russian. Russians were also behind the biggest cyber crime case in U.S. history. Federal prosecutors named four Russians and a Ukrainian in a banking-card fraud spree that cost companies including J.C. Penney, JetBlue Airways and French retailer Carrefour more than $300 million. The risk of being prosecuted is so low that it does little to dissuade highly educated and skillful but under-employed programmers from turning to illicit hacking for profit or fun. In a country where wages are lower than in the West and life is expensive, and one that has long produced some of the world's best mathematicians, the temptation to turn to crime is great. And the hackers are generally ahead of the people trying to catch them. (Source

Marijuana: DEA Bans Armored Cars From Picking up Pot Shop Cash
Medical marijuana is legal in California, but the combination of valuable drugs and what is often a cash-only business can attract some rough characters. The federal authority has told armored car companies they can no longer work with some, perhaps all, cannabis retailers in California and Colorado. In Los Angeles dispensaries have been victimized by violent, sometimes deadly robberies. That doesn't mean that armored cars are the solution, but some believe having armed guards pick up and deliver cash can be a deterrent. But the Attorney General, who the DEA reports to, obviously is saying you're on your own. Editor's note: So if you have a store close by one, your risk factors just multiplied. (Source

UPDATE: Bronx, N.Y., $429,000 Armored Guard heist last Thursday - Two drivers fail lie-detector test Friday  Police and the FBI are still questioning the two men for the $429,000 armored car-jacking from the parking lot of a strip mall in Canarsie on Thursday. Investigators suspected this daring heist might have been an inside job from the start. Both employees also forgot their cell phones on the day of the heist. Once the bad guy was gone, the driver told cops he wasn’t able to call 911 for help — because he didn’t have his cell phone with him. Meanwhile, when his partner came out and discovered the money truck was gone, he couldn’t call the cops right away because he — coincidentally — also didn’t have a cell phone with him. (Source

Last week's most popular news article --

Retailing has done a brilliant job entertaining and welcoming people into the fold. Maybe it’s time to protect them as well - Are You Sure You’re Safe?  In light of recent events–bombings in Boston, shootings in Newtown and the all-too-common armed robberies, are we nearing the tipping point when it becomes a retail mantra? It’s clear that the constant threat of violence, to which we have become so desensitized, has become the new normal and retailers who are in denial or choose to ignore the situation, are just making their stores, employees and customers very tempting targets. Retail is among the most vulnerable to these despicable acts by the disenfranchised among us. Retail is the anchor in many communities and must be seen as a safe haven. But the truth is that security for customers and employees is virtually non-existent. And if it does exist, it’s there to protect assets not people. Editors note: Here's an article from a very respected website in the retail community and the article itself is a great commentary of what's going on in our society and how the retailers need to take action and support more investment in ensuring a safe environment. Take a few minutes to read it and pass it around to your senior management teams. Maybe it'll help next time we need to respond to the increased violence we're seeing in our stores and our nation. Just a thought. (Source

Don't Let a Bad Former Employer Sabotage Your Quest for a New Job
Have you ever worked for someone you considered a "bad boss?" They can be unpleasant to work for a number of reasons: they can be abrupt or seemingly unfriendly, they can have an arrogant attitude, and have poor planning skills. People who work for bad bosses eventually become fed up and leave their jobs, but take caution: bad bosses frequently give negative references to ruin a former employee's efforts to find a new job. Take these steps if you feel your efforts at gaining new employment have been ruined by a bad boss, and don't let a bad boss keep you from pursuing your goals. (Source

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.
