Gump’s Files for Bankruptcy

The retailer has $61 million in assets and $64 million in liabilities, according to published reports

August 6, 2018, Allison Zisko
......................................................

LAS VEGAS—Gump’s, after looking for strategic alternatives to stay afloat, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in Nevada Bankruptcy Court here on Friday night.

The San Francisco-based luxury department store is looking for a buyer, according to a report in SFGate, and plans to liquidate merchandise to pay off lenders, with Hilco Merchant Resources and Gordon Brothers handling sales.

The company and its affiliates have $61 million in assets and $64 million in liabilities, according to published reports. It operates one store and a catalog.

Successful Selling in Today's Experience Economy
Monday, August 13, 2018: 10:30 AM - 11:30 AM

The consumer trend towards preferring to spend money on experiences instead of things is not limited to just Millennials and Gen Z shoppers - so it’s important to think about how to market your store to these customers.

FOR BRANDS:

Bridge Can Help You Share Stock with Retailers

..................................

Stores are hungry to know stock levels from their manufacturers. The brands that make knowing this information easy are the brands to which stores drive business.

Ask yourself: how can a store sell something it doesn't have in stock or for which it doesn't know the stock level?

Good news: Bridge now allows you to easily upload stock to your Bridge account. Only your authorized retailers and sales reps will see this stock level upon logging in.

..................................

How a Retailer Sees Your Stock in Bridge:

1. The retailer logs in to its Bridge account.

2. The retailer browses to your brand and clicks on an item.

3. The page shows the stock quantity.

..................................

Really hate a credit card brand? Do what Kroger did: just stop accepting it. Visa, along with AmEx, keeps raising its fees on merchants almost every month and claims to promote “customer choice.” That’s like promoting rioting in the name of looter choice. It’s not fair to keep giving out mileage and points cards and keep raising the fees on retailers.

AmEx ripped off customers reports today’s WSJ. Does that sound familiar? Again and again I butt heads with AmEx over their high fees. I really need to stop using their credit card. They promote a “small business” day, yet again and again charge high processing fees for services to small businesses. They’re a Janus and I don’t need bi-polar service providers.

 Rosenthal
 Rosenthal


Timo Sarpaneva is the focus of an exhibition at the Design Museum in Helsinki, Finland. He has had enormous influence on two of our Smart Brands partners Iittala and Rosenthal.

Also in the exhibition are photographs that tell some of his story — among them, images of the fantastical, crowd-attracting shop windows (adorned with glass harps and butterflies hanging from invisible wires) that he created for Iittala, the company that hired him in 1950. It was there that he made his name as a glass designer, of both art pieces and usable ones. In the latter category are the colored drinking glasses and beakers of the (pre-Internet) i series, for which he created a special logo: a boxy, lower case i that sits at the center of a small blood-red circle. Simple, bold, easy to identify and jolly, it ...Read rest of Chalk

There’s always a party pooper. New Hampshire is seeking to undermine the recent Supreme Court victory for small businesses by interfering with the ruling. The state (along with Delaware, Montana, Alaska, and Oregon) doesn’t collect sales tax, so it sees the work needed to collect sales tax as onerous. Thankfully, legal experts give New Hampshire a low chance of succeeding in this.

A fine china plate that is stronger than steel? That may now be possible due to Chinese inventor and jewelry designer Wallace Chan’s technology. This tech could likely be used to make stronger cups and plates.

Amazon is awash in fakes reports today’s Wall St Journal. Recently, I looked at an Amazon page selling Anna Weatherley. The page said the seller was “Anna Weatherley.” It wasn’t. If you clicked this name, it showed the seller as someone else. Why would the page mislead the shopper?

My conclusion is Amazon has a shady website, and it helps shady sellers sometimes sell fakes.
