"Departure of Target CEO puts Canadian retreat on table" With 2013 results including a $941M US operating loss in Canada & anticipating a Canadian loss of $314M for 2014 we could see them pull out of Canada  Industry observers suggest that the Minneapolis-based company, which suffered a massive data breach five months ago, needs to look at major changes to its fledgling Canadian stores and possibly close some of them. Some company watchers say Target will have to consider shutting its operations here entirely within the next year or two if their performance doesn’t improve significantly. “It is conceivable that they will close Canada,” Faye Landes, retail analyst at Cowen and Co. in New York, said in an interview. “I assume with a new CEO, everything will be on the table.” And while the spotlight has been on Target’s data breach problem, “the so far very disappointing launch in Canada is the bigger issue at hand,” said Christopher Horvers, retail analyst at JPMorgan. Paul Trussell, retail analyst at Deutsche Bank in New York, said the new CEO will need to re-assess the Canadian business and mull shutting some of its weakest stores. Nine more are planned this year. The new leader will have to rethink the company’s staying in Canada within two years if its performance here doesn’t get much better, Trussell added in an interview.

Radio Shack, Office Depot, Aeropostale, Game Stop, Brookstone, - Hits the 2,000 store closing mark so far with more to come

At Sears, 'closing stores is going to be part of our future'
Speaking at this year's annual shareholders meeting in Hoffman Estates, Sears Holdings Corp. Chairman and CEO Edward Lampert today said the retailer would close stores and look for ways to leverage its real estate while sticking to its focus on integrated retail and its Shop Your Way program. "Closing stores is going to be part of our future," he said. "I'd rather do (fewer closures) rather than more, but the world has shifted. Sears has closed about 500 stores since 2005 — 305 of them since 2010 — but Mr. Lampert said he could not estimate how many more will shutter. We think you don't need 2,000 stores to be relevant in the United States," he said. Currently there are 1,152 Kmart stores and 778 full-line Sears stores. He outlined a vision of Sears' stores five years from now that will be physically smaller and sell both Sears merchandise and goods from third-party retailers, much the way the company's online Marketplace currently sells 120 million products, the vast majority of which are not Sears' own merchandise.

Retailers advised to make security central to omnichannel plans - Fulfillment is the key battle area in new era of retail  Retailers must put procedures in place to protect the long-term health of their businesses and ensure security concerns are a central part of their omnichannel strategies, according to a new industry report. With new security threats and hacking technologies emerging at the same time the amount of personal data held online is growing, ResearchFarm's 'Omnichannel 2014 - In store technology, logistics, retail as a platform' report advises companies operating in the industry to build a sufficiently robust infrastructure to protect them and their customers from cyber-threats. Establishing the relevant security, the report says, is just one component of rolling out the ideal omnichannel strategy – a challenge that ResearchFarm defines as the most disruptive period since Amazon and eCommerce appeared on the scene in the late 1990s. "Ensure an effective IT system that not only captures customer data accurately but also mitigates the growing online threats. This requires employing the best technical people out there who have the skills to extract actionable insights from the data. Support this foundation with a well-defined yet flexible logistics structure that meets customers' exacting standards." The authors of the report also pinpoint fulfillment as a key battle area in this new era of retail, and they urge the companies, which have not already done so, to consider offering click & collect and next-day delivery services to meet consumer demand.

Data breach alert: Small retailers are especially vulnerable
If you’re more worried about becoming a victim of a data breach at a big national retail chain than in your local mom-and-pop store, think again. More than half of the small businesses surveyed by the Ponemon Institute in 2013 had experienced a data breach, while only one third had notified consumers that their personal information had been exposed. In the early months of 2014, a number of small retailers suffered data breaches. The retailers who were hacked weren’t high-profile targets for hackers. They are typically discovered by cyber thieves’ robots that scan the Internet night and day for websites with vulnerabilities, according to Robert Hansen, Vice President of WhiteHat Labs at WhiteHat Security, who has worked on investigations of breaches for many small businesses. And such vulnerabilites are all too common. (Source

Can 4G boost the retail industry?
The emergence of 4G will encourage shoppers to make more online retail purchases on their smartphones, according to new research. The latest eCustomerServiceIndex (eCSI) survey from eDigitalResearch and e-tail trade body IMRG asked 2,000 consumers across the UK about their use of mobile in the shopping journey, with existing 4G users seemingly more engaged with technology in general. Over three quarters (77%) of 4G users have accessed the internet from their 4G-enabled device whilst out shopping, compared to 53% of 3G smartphone users. The research also indicates that 62% of 4G users have used a barcode scanner to see if they can find a cheaper product elsewhere, compared to 20% of 3G smartphone owners. (Source

Most Drivers Believe Hands-free Cell Phones Are Safer - A Mistake, A New Poll Says  New findings from a National Safety Council public opinion poll released earlier last month indicate that 80 percent of drivers across America incorrectly believe that hands-free devices are safer than using a handheld phone. Of poll participants who admitted to using hands-free devices, 70 percent said they did so for safety reasons, the council, a nonprofit advocacy group, said, noting that more than 30 studies show that hands-free devices are no safer than handheld, “as the brain remains distracted by the cell phone conversation.” “While many drivers honestly believe they are making the safe choice by using a hands-free device, it’s just not true,” David Teater, senior director of transportation initiatives at the Council, said in a statement. “The problem is the brain does not truly multi-task. Just like you can’t read a book and talk on the phone, you can’t safely operate a vehicle and talk on the phone. With some state laws focusing on handheld bans and carmakers putting hands-free technology in vehicles, no wonder people are confused.” (Source



Shots fired during robbery at Walmart in Oak Park, CA  Police are investigating after shots were fired during a robbery at a Walmart store in Oak Park. The incident occurred inside the store at about 10 p.m. Tuesday when one of the clerks was held up at a register. Police say the gunman fired two shots from a handgun into the ceiling and possibly a third shot that hit a window. The robber fled the store running to a Mustang parked in the lot. No one was injured, and the amount of loss is unknown. This is the second shooting at the same Walmart in the past six months. A similar incident occurred in November of 2013. No one was injured in that shooting. (Source

Hackensack traffic stop leads cops to a fraud arrest for fake cards & possible multimillion-dollar operation  Hackensack police said that late on Friday, they found a trove of items - including computers, printers, fake New Jersey driver's licenses, credit cards, gift cards and business checks - in an Overlook Avenue apartment they say is connected to a multimillion-dollar fraud operation. Authorities discovered the operation when Hackensack and Bergen County Prosecutor's Office narcotics detectives made a motor vehicle stop and saw "quite a number" of credit cards in the Range Rover Morris was driving, Mordaga said. Morris consented to a search of the Overlook Avenue apartment, where police seized items that could be used to manufacture false identification, credit cards, gift cards and checks. They reported finding computers, USB flash drives, cellphones, hard drives, a counterfeit detection scanner, a 2011 copy of the "ID Checking Guide, U.S. & Canada," MasterCard gift cards, a Pep Boys gift card, AMC Theatres gift cards, business checks, a brown Louis Vuitton messenger bag and thousands of blank cards. Also found were credit cards for Visa, Bank of America, American Express, Discover, HSBC, Capital One, Chase and U.S. Bank, as well as copies of American Gangsters and F.E.D.S magazines and a DVD of the movie "American Gangster." The Secret Service will assist in the investigation, he said, adding that a federal agent had told him this was the largest such seizure he'd seen in the state.  (Source

Police shoot, kill tanning salon robbery suspect in South Daytona  Authorities are investigating a shooting in South Daytona in which officers shot and killed a man trying to rob a tanning salon. According to authorities, South Daytona Police Department and Daytona Beach Police Department officers were responding to a silent alarm call on Beville Road at the Hot Tans salon just before 4 p.m. and found the doors to the salon locked during business hours.

A former Jos. A Bank employee arrested for theft of $32,500 in Fort Wayne, Indiana  A Fort Wayne man is accused of stealing more than $2,500 worth of clothes from a department store while giving his friends $30,000 worth of discounts. On Tuesday, Allen County prosecutors formally charged Michael T. Klopfenstein, 21, with one felony count of theft. Klopfenstein worked at Jos. A. Bank at Jefferson Pointe for less than a year between 2012 and 2013. According to court documents, during that time, he would wear clothes out of the store or take them home in bags.

Jewelry store robbed, then set on fire in Bellefontaine, OH; 10 other businesses damaged  Smith Jewelers in Bellefontaine was robbed of thousands of dollars in inventory and then set on fire early Tuesday morning. Smoke from the fire spread to 10 other downtown businesses, but the jewelry store sustained the worst of the damage. Investigators believe the robber, who first attempted to access the building through a neighboring business before smashing through the glass front door, may have set the fire to cover up evidence of the theft. The exact cause of the fire was still under investigation Tuesday. Owner Scott Stevens said he wasn’t even aware that a robbery had occurred when he got called to the store at 6:15 a.m. and found smoke pouring from the windows. “It wasn’t until the fire department invited me into my store and asked if anything was missing that I noticed all the cases were empty,” he said. The stolen inventory was worth between $10,000 and $20,000. (Source

Raleigh police bust major ORC theft ring hitting Sam's Club & selling loot at local flea market  Investigators believe they have stopped a major theft ring involving nearly 2,000 items stolen from a Raleigh Sam’s Club to be sold at a local flea market. Edgar Armando Alvarez, 38, is accused of leading the organized retail theft ring where thieves took merchandise from area stores, sold them to Alvarez for cash, who then sells them at Watson’s Flea Market. Authorities were tipped about the ring after Travis Ashley Seamster, 30, and Dana Brooke Whitley, 33, were arrested on April 18 on shoplifting and armed robbery charges. A security guard at the Sam's Club confronted a man and a woman about shoplifting and the man pulled a knife before the pair dropped the merchandise and ran. Seamster told investigators he sold stolen merchandise to Alvarez for cash multiple times within the past year, and did so under the watch of Raleigh detectives in April. “The cooperating defendant delivered numerous new hammers, tape measures and gloves for $160,” the warrant said. Alvarez, who was arrested after the transaction, is charged with organized retail theft, possession of stolen goods/property and receiving stolen goods/property. Police seized over 1,900 items from Alvarez’ home on April 19. All the items were taken from the Sam’s Club on South Saunders Street, including: tools, electronics, H&B, clothing, auto supplies and jewelry. Police believe Alvarez stored the stolen goods in his home before selling them at the flea market. (Source

International Cybercriminal 'Eskalibur' gets 14 yrs in prison for stealing and selling 118,000 credit cards that were used in South Florida stores  The stolen credit card numbers were used to buy merchandise in South Florida stores, but U.S. Secret Service agents traced the fraud to a man in Ukraine who used the online nickname "Eskalibur." On Tuesday, a federal judge in Fort Lauderdale sentenced Egor Shevelev, the man behind the mythical name, to 14 years in prison for trafficking more than 118,000 stolen and fraudulent credit card numbers. Shevelev, 27, was one of the world's top online salesmen of stolen credit card numbers and operated a cyberfraud that crossed international borders, targeting victims in South Florida and New York, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office. In February, Shevelev admitted that he was one of the ringleaders of the multimillion-dollar fraud, which he operated from his apartment in Kiev. Prosecutors said the potential loss was more than $59 million, but the actual loss to hundreds of victims has been impossible to calculate. (Source

The group has been captured on security cameras in businesses using the fraudulent cards. Anyone with information on these suspects is asked to contact Investigator Craig Romans by telephone at (850) 248-2075 or email at (Source

The e-mail world may have sped up the world and allowed people to communicate virtually instantly, but it's not the forum to resolve issues between people. If anything, the freedom an email offers insofar as the ability to write whatever best suits your points and usually with an added pinch of sarcasm may, in fact, deepen the crevasse and cause more harm. It's much easier to write in solitude than to face your intended recipient and their immediate response. So the next time you receive one of those OMG emails, think twice before responding because you never know who else may be reading and, after all, if you truly want to resolve an issue with a person, you need to do it the old fashion way -- face to face.

Just a Thought,
