Online spending on Thanksgiving rose 28% over last year shares today’s WSJ.

Stores that have not invested heavily and intelligently in their website will not see this gain. The major issue facing indie stores is they haven’t fixed their online presence—after watching the majors spend billions on their e-commerce operations to get back on track.

There’s a big fork in the road coming:
+ Indie stores that continue with little web presence will fall off the map.
+ Indie stores that are part of a larger sales funnel and part of a software platform that will succeed online.

Reason: indie stores don’t have the money, time, nor tech know how to do it on their own. It’s not each indie store vs each indie store. Indies will have to team up. As a reference, the only reason Macy’s can spend $50 ...Read rest of Chalk

+ Online holiday sales are projected to grow 15% this season.
+ Macy’s reports shoppers buy 25% more when picking items up in-store.
+ Stores are increasingly offering in-store pickup for online purchases. More stores are offeirng checkout via mobile handheld scanners.
+ Target and Amazon are offering free shipping on many items. Walmart is offering free expediated shipping on orders over $35. Aka: order a new set of dinner plates and fast shipping is free. That’s a compelling offer to counter Amazon and other players.

For your consideration:
+ Does your store allow goods to be ordered online and picked up in-store?
+ Does your store offer free shipping? If so, is your offering competitive?
+ Does your store have a mobile checkout scanner?

Thanks to Jim Power the Mosaic Man for literally cementing Bridge into the history books. You can see Jim’s artwork (and Bridge’s mosaic) on St. Marks in the East Village.

FOR RETAILERS:

Good news: we're allowing you to add an UNLIMITED number of items to your Bridge store.

Previously, Bridge had caps on how many items you could add manually. For example, in the past a plan may have let you add 5,000 items manually. Now, all plans allow you to add an unlimited number of items.

We've made some other updates to the pricing. The free plan now includes 10 Smart Brands (approximately 5,000 Smart Products).

We've also added a threshold to the number of staff account one can have with each plan. For example, the free plan includes one free staff account, the $24/month includes 4 staff accounts, etc.

The above plan and pricing makes more cost effective to add more items. :)

Can a store offer lower prices than Amazon? Yup, and one such chain is Five Below which has 750 stores. The WSJ reported a basket of goods were 50% less at Five Below than on Amazon.
