Today’s WSJ interviews Crate & Barrel CEO Neela Montgomery. Interesting points:
- 50% of media budget spent on digital.
- 47% of its furniture sales are online.
- 95% of products it sells are private label.
- It doesn’t plan to sell on amazon.com.
- It’s working to speed up shipping times.

 redemption period
 redemption period
RETAILERS:
New feature: your software now helps you move more product out the door.

Your Bridge registry software now has a redemption period feature. By default, your software sets this to 2 years. This redemption period text appears at the bottom of the registrant's registry page. The page automatically calculates and outputs the redemption period end date. For example, on the registry shown here, it says:

"Friends & family love seeing their gifts being enjoyed. We encourage you to redeem registry credit and gift cards from us within 2 years of your registry event date. Please redeem your credit by: November 3, 2020. PS - If you wish, please take pictures of items as you enjoy them and share the pictures with us. We'd love to see your experiences."

 Christies

Three families of Rockefellers have owned this set. Learn more about the ‘Tobacco Leaf’ service, circa 1775. Estimate: $150,000-250,000 at Christie’s New York this Spring.

The voyages undertaken by Captain James Cook to the South Pacific in the 1770s aroused considerable interest among European botanists in Oriental flora. The so-called ‘tobacco leaf’ pattern, however, may owe as much in its derivation to textile designs supplied to the East India Company as it does to any interest in plant life. This service, which is painted in the design traditionally referred to as the chrysanthemum version of the ‘tobacco leaf’ pattern, and flowers, belonged to Lucy Truman Aldrich before being acquired by Nelson Rockefeller in the 1960s and ’70s.

Shortly before his death in 1979, Nelson sold it to his ...Read rest of Chalk

I agree with Carol about making a non-linear store plan. As an example, William-Wayne, which has two locations in NYC, has almost serpentine pathways around the stores that are chockablock with goods. The longer a customer is in the store, the better.

 online shopping
What time do your customers shop online? This week's L2 newsletter shares that 8 pm is prime time for online shopping. The problem: your store is likely closed.

How can you provide customer service to customers when your store is closed? That is worth investigating and investing in.

Your Bridge team may help. Bridge is considering offering stores an outsourced 'live chat' feature for their website that operates after hours. If a store subscribes to this service, its customers can ask questions via this live chat feature. Bridge's staff will handle the questions. If Bridge doesn't know the answer, it will record the questions and the customer's contact information and give that information to the store. This solution helps customers that visit at 8 pm get customer service vs. be frustrated ...Read rest of Chalk
