An Expanded Range of Sketchers Styles Feature Goodyear Rubber Technology Outsoles For Enhanced Grip, Stability And Durability
Global footwear powerhouse Skechers is building on the technology in its footwear through a new collaboration with The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company. Select styles across multiple categories for men, women and kids will utilize Goodyear rubber technology in custom Skechers outsoles that will deliver increased grip, stability and durability.
“This collaboration is an example of two trusted brands coming together to create a high-tech product that will truly benefit our consumer,” said Michael Greenberg, president of Skechers. “Through this effort, select products will feature Goodyear Performance Outsoles, offering that extra edge where it’s needed most—be it enhanced stability on a run, excellent grip over slippery surfaces in the workplace, or durability on the playground for long-lasting wear. We expect this will resonate with our customers who need these innovations in the comfortable Skechers footwear that they love.”
“Goodyear has always worked to create innovative products that provide consumers with high-performance tires, and now we’re using that same ingenuity to enable consumers to wear high-performance shoes,” said Christian Jurado, Goodyear’s global director of licensed products.
The shoes, featuring Goodyear Performance Outsoles, are designed for durability with long-lasting wear, excellent grip on a variety of surfaces and weather conditions and enhanced stability through exceptional traction. This is made possible with Goodyear-developed rubber technology that contains a special polymer including sustainable soybean oil—a renewable, bio-based material used in some of the company’s top-performing tires – available in the U.S. and Canada – the Assurance® WeatherReady®, Eagle® Exhilarate® and Eagle® Enforcer® All Weather® and the Assurance ComfortDrive®.

Prepares to launch next phase of successful Macy’s Star Rewards loyalty program
Lays out plans to build four $1 billion power private brands
Optimizes store portfolio by continuing the Growth treatment of stores in best malls, closing approximately 125 stores in lower tier malls within three years, and exploring new off-mall formats
Establishes single corporate headquarters and relocates digital business to New York City, the heart of the fashion industry
Macy’s, Inc. today announced an updated strategy and three-year plan designed to stabilize profitability and position the company for growth.
“We have a clear vision of where Macy’s, Inc. and our brands, Macy’s, Bloomingdale’s and Bluemercury, fit into retail today. We are confident in our Polaris strategy, and we have the resources required to return Macy’s, Inc. to sustainable, profitable growth,” said Jeff Gennette, chairman and chief executive officer of Macy’s, Inc. “We will focus our resources on the healthy parts of our business, directly address the unhealthy parts of the business and explore new revenue streams. Over the past three years, we have shown we can grow the top-line; however, we have significant work to do to improve the bottom-line. We are confident the strategy we are announcing today will allow us to stabilize margin in 2020 and set the foundation for sustainable, profitable growth.”
“We are taking the organization through significant structural change to lower costs, bring teams closer together and reduce duplicative work. This will be a tough week for our team as we say goodbye to great colleagues and good friends. The changes we are making are deep and impact every area of the business, but they are necessary. I know we will come out of this transition stronger, more agile and better fit to compete in today’s retail environment,” continued Gennette.
The five major components of the Polaris strategy are outlined below.
Strengthen Customer Relationships
The company is focusing on building customer lifetime value, accelerating personalization and monetization programs and expanding its loyalty program. This includes the launch of the next phase of its already successful Macy’s Star Rewards Loyalty program later this month. Loyalty 3.0 is expected to increase the engagement of occasional Macy’s customers and to bring new customers into the brand.
Curate Quality Fashion
Customers come to Macy’s for a compelling curation of the latest trends, exclusive products and the best brands at great value. Macy’s is driving disciplined merchandise product category roles to be the top destination for the best brands, while balancing sales and margin. As part of the merchandising strategy, the company is committed to a more focused approach to its higher-margin private brands business with plans to build four $1 billion brands.
Accelerate Digital Growth
The company has a scaled and growing digital business across its brands that generates more than $6 billion per year in sales. Macys.com contributes to overall operating profit, and the company will continue to invest in its websites and mobile apps to deliver a superior fashion experience, accelerate growth and further strengthen profitability.
The macys.com headquarters will relocate from San Francisco to New York City, the heart of the fashion industry. This will allow for better coordination and increased collaboration and better access to Macy’s brand partners. The company will also expand its presence in the Atlanta area, which will serve as the primary technology hub for the company. This includes adding positions to its current Johns Creek, GA, facility, as well as opening an office in Atlanta.
Optimize Store Portfolio
Store Closures and Staffing
The company completed a rigorous evaluation of Macy’s store portfolio. This included a store-level assessment of each store’s overall value to the fleet, including predicted profitability based on consumer trends and demographics. As a result, Macy’s plans to close approximately 125 of its least productive stores over the next three years, including approximately 30 stores that are in the process of closure now. These approximately 125 stores currently account for approximately $1.4 billion in annual sales.
Across the remaining store fleet, the company is adjusting its staffing with reductions in some stores and increases in others.
The updated stores strategy better serves today’s shopper who expects a consistent experience whenever and wherever they encounter the Macy’s brand.
“Our customers expect convenience and a tailored experience across all channels. We have an opportunity to build a broader yet integrated Macy’s experience within a metropolitan area by investing in our magnet stores, building freestanding Backstage locations and testing new, off-mall store formats,” said Gennette. “The more convenient, brand-right touchpoints we have, the greater loyalty and engagement we engender. This will enable us to grow with the next generation of American shoppers.”

Nordstrom is proud to announce its latest creative projects initiative, See You Tomorrow, a new recommerce experience launching on January 31, 2020. Powered by Yerdle, See You Tomorrow offers customers both an online resale site and an in-store shopping experience in the NYC Flagship store.

Thanksgiving weekend draws nearly 190 million shoppers, spending up 16 percent
Retail sales in November, and especially around the Thanksgiving/Black Friday period are some of the most important sales data in all of retail. And this year’s numbers are even more important than ever before.
Per the analysts at the National Retail Federation, retail sales in November increased 0.1 percent seasonally adjusted over October and were up 2.1 percent unadjusted year-over-year, marking the first half of the holiday season with billions of dollars in shopping left to be done. The numbers exclude automobile dealers, gasoline stations and restaurants.
“November showed modest growth on the surface, but you have to remember that the late timing of Thanksgiving delayed the beginning of the busiest portion of the holiday season and pushed Cyber Monday’s billions of dollars of retail sales into December,” NRF Chief Economist Jack Kleinhenz said. “These numbers are more about the calendar than consumer confidence. Consumer spending has been solid, and there’s still a lot of spending to be done. With strong employment and higher wages, we’re on track for a strong holiday season.”
Kleinhenz noted that the year-over-year comparison was challenging because November 2018 was up an unusually strong 4.7 percent over the year before. But December 2018 was down 0.2 percent from the year before, making it likely that next month could show a strong comparison.
In addition, many consumers began their shopping early this year, with some starting before November. NRF surveys showed that 39 percent planned to begin by Halloween, and that consumers on average had completed 52 percent of their shopping as of the Thanksgiving Day weekend.
“Whether they’re looking for something unique on Main Street, making a trip to the mall or clicking from the couch, this is when holiday shoppers shift into high gear.” – NRF President and CEO Matthew Shay
NRF’s forecast predicts that holiday retail sales during November and December will increase between 3.8 percent and 4.2 percent for a total of between $727.9 billion and $730.7 billion.
November’s results build on October’s increase of 0.2 percent month-over-month and a strong 4.1 percent year-over-year. As of November, the three-month moving average was up 3.3 percent over the same period a year ago, compared with 4.2 percent in October.
NRF’s numbers are based on data from the U.S. Census Bureau, which said today that overall November sales – including auto dealers, gas stations and restaurants – were up 0.2 percent seasonally adjusted from October and up 3.3 percent unadjusted year-over-year.
Specifics from key retail sectors during November include:
Online and other non-store sales were up 7.2 percent year-over-year and up 0.8 percent month-over-month seasonally adjusted.
Sporting goods stores were up 4.3 percent year-over-year but down 0.5 percent month-over-month seasonally adjusted.
Grocery and beverage stores were up 4 percent year-over-year and up 0.3 percent month-over-month seasonally adjusted.
Furniture and home furnishings stores were up 1.4 percent year-over-year and up 0.1 percent month-over-month seasonally adjusted.
General merchandise stores were unchanged year-over-year but up 0.1 percent month-over-month seasonally adjusted.
Building materials and garden supply stores were down 1.2 percent year-over-year but unchanged month-over-month seasonally adjusted.
Electronics and appliance stores were down 1.7 percent year-over-year but up 0.7 percent month-over-month seasonally adjusted.
Health and personal care stores were also down 1.7 percent year-over-year and were down 1.1 percent month-over-month seasonally adjusted.
Clothing and clothing accessory stores were down 2.9 percent year-over-year and down 0.6 percent month-over-month seasonally adjusted.
And the good news, such as it is, continued into the proceeding Thanksgiving Day weekend. A record 189.6 million U.S. consumers shopped from Thanksgiving Day through Cyber Monday this year, an increase of 14 percent over last year’s 165.8 million, the National Retail Federation and Prosper Insights & Analytics said.
“Americans continue to start their holiday shopping earlier in the year, and Thanksgiving is still a critical weekend for millions,” NRF President and CEO Matthew Shay said. “Whether they’re looking for something unique on Main Street, making a trip to the store or searching for the best deals from their mobile device, this is when shoppers shift into high gear. With the condensed holiday season, consumers are feeling the pressure to get their shopping done in time. Even those who typically wait until the last minute to purchase gifts turned out in record numbers all weekend long.”

In partnership with SoGal Ventures and powered by b8ta, seven Macy’s stores nationwide feature products from women-owned small businesses
This season, holiday shoppers can find the perfect gift at Macy’s from a host of female-led small businesses in the SoGifted shops at seven Macy’s locations nationwide. The SoGifted shops are made possible via a partnership with SoGal Ventures, the first female-led millennial venture capital fund investing in diverse entrepreneurs in the United States. Macy’s recently became a strategic partner with SoGal through a minority stake in the fund. The SoGifted shops feature a selection of products and gifts from women-founded brands in the SoGal community including Lovevery, toys designed by experts for your child’s developing brain, Neely & Chloe, a fashion-forward accessories range, and HidrateSpark 3, a smart water bottle that tracks your hydration, among others.
Open through January 2020, the SoGifted Concept Shops give Macy’s shoppers access to new brands that define what SoGal stands for: entrepreneurship, equality, and empowerment of diverse enterprises. Today, SoGal co-founders Elizabeth Galbut and Pocket Sun guide more than 65 companies, reaching a network of more than 100,000 entrepreneurs in an excess of 30 countries.
SoGal Ventures is the first female-led millennial venture capital firm. Galbut and Sun started this fund after experience as entrepreneurs and venture capitalists. They believe in the power of diversity, borderless business, and human-centric design. SoGal invests in early stage diverse founding teams in the U.S. and Asia, aiming to be the strongest ally for their portfolio companies. Powered by the SoGal Ecosystem across 40+ cities around the world, they are galvanizing a brand-new demographic – millennial & Gen Z women and minorities – to take center stage in entrepreneurship and creation.
“Our mission is to build a firm that embodies the cultural values that we want to see in the world,” said Galbut. “With the partnership at Macy’s we’re taking this a step further and giving in-store shoppers across the country an opportunity to discover and support female-led small business brands – so the next generation of women can be empowered to know that entrepreneurship is within their reach,” added Galbut.
This type of brand discovery spotlights Macy’s ongoing partnership with b8ta, operator of the Ark Marketplace platform that allows brands that traditionally haven’t operated stores to quickly set up new physical retail operations. The b8ta-powered experience enabled SoGal’s range of entrepreneurs to activate at Macy’s within a matter of weeks – with products ranging from Bon Temps herbal teas to unbreakable hosiery by Sheertex.
For holiday shoppers, the fresh female-first lens brings diversity to Macy’s gifting mix, further reinforcing Macy’s newly established diversity and inclusion goals, which include increasing representation and advancing the growth of under-represented suppliers. Empowered offerings like TomboyX, a size and gender inclusive line of underwear and pajamas and Blume, a range of safe and sustainable feminine care solutions, highlight Macy’s commitment to testing new brands and categories. On the more traditional gifting side, Ettitude introduces sustainable bamboo pajamas and bedding essentials, OK Jewelry showcases its affordable high-end fashion jewelry, and Quirktastic supplies geek-chic graphic tees – perfect for the comics lover in your life.
The SoGifted shops are being supported by entrepreneurial focused events including a dedicated launch party with the female founders at Macy’s flagship location at Herald Square which took place on November 20 and a “For Women, by Women” panel discussion with the founders of Blume, TomboyX and Sheertex. In addition, there will be events throughout the holiday partnership including beauty and trunk shows, as well as wellness focused event content in January to bring in the New Year.

‘I am connected to the idea of unity, togetherness and challenging the perception of what love is today. This for me is the real spirit of the season. It’s one of my favorite times of the year – when I can stop, reflect and reconnect with those who make me feel happy and at home, no matter where I am in the world. I loved the idea of bringing together a group of people that have been so supportive of me since I joined Burberry to celebrate my first holiday campaign for the house,” states Riccardo Tisci, Burberry Chief Creative Officer.

was a real pleasure working on this project for Burberry. Working
with Riccardo is about connection, it’s about the back and forth of
discussing creative ideas and it’s this that makes our jobs even
more interesting and exciting. We have been friends for many years so
I guess we know each other’s sensibilities – there are always a
lot of laughs!” says Mert and Alas. “My favourite
Christmas memory is when we were preparing a Christmas dinner and the
oven literally blew up! I burnt my lashes and of course we had no
turkey. Disappointing, but it was a funny night!”
the cast itself seems to have had a fun and memorable time as well.
BRUNI: “I love the
concept of the campaign – this big group of different people coming
together. I had a fabulous time with Riccardo and was thrilled to
find myself behind the lens of Mert & Marcus again. On set,
Riccardo gave me this feeling of freedom and modernity – his talent
is beyond words. You can see that he has this profound and precious
knowledge of fashion, and has this simplistic way of using the past
to invent the future. My most precious festive memory is a Christmas
Eve in a castle completely buried in snow in Touraine.”

shopping services. This holiday season, the retailer is offering nine
ways to shop – more than ever before – to help customers save
time and money, including:
Gift Finder: New this year, customers can search for gifts on Walmart.com with Gift Finder, which provides gift options for 40 different types of gift recipients. Customers provide information based on the recipient and their price range and are served up personalized recommendations so they can choose the best gift for anyone on their list, even the hardest to shop for.
Scannable Toy Catalog: For the first time, customers with iOS devices can use their phones to shop for the hottest toys of the season right from the pages of Walmart’s seasonal toy catalog. Dropping Nov. 1, this new digitized experience lets customers scan and shop hundreds of toys, including more than 150 exclusives, through the Walmart app.
Free NextDay Delivery*: New this holiday season, customers can order from up to hundreds of thousands of eligible items and have them delivered to their house the very next day without a membership fee.
Expanded Check Out With Me: Check Out With Meis now available in all Walmart Supercenters, allowing customers to avoid lines at the register and check out with an associate right where they are shopping, like in Santaland in the garden center, the electronics department or near the registers.
Expanded DotCom Store: The DotCom Store, which is also now available in all Walmart Supercenters, lets customers work with associates to place an online order right from the store if the customer cannot find the item they’re shopping for. Items are then sent directly to the customer’s home or to their nearest Walmart store for Pickup.
Collection Features 20 Products Across All Categories And 33 Gift Sets For Everyone On This Year’s Shopping List
holiday, M·A·C Cosmetics plays with a classic symbol of the
celebratory season with its Starring You
taking the twinkling star in all-new directions – on packaging, in
a glittering lineup of products and kits, and in dazzling new looks.
More than just the inspiration behind shimmering hues, the star is
YOU. A legendary lineup for eyes, lips and face encourages
everyone to create, make a name for themselves and claim center
working with the Starring You collection, the first word that came to
my mind was ‘opulent,’” said Fatima Thomas, M·A·C Senior
Artist. “The finishes are reflective, varying from moderate
frost to high-beam metallic, and apply smoothly. The colour palette
is sophisticated and urbane. After the predominantly fiery coppers
and rusts of SS19, it’s refreshing to create looks with rich plums,
pinots, irons and garnets laced with sparkle.“
In the new collection, stars are born this holiday season. All-new glitter-coated Kiss Of Stars Lipstick serves subtle glam or full-on glitz with creamy, eye-catching shimmer in six shades. Newly returned Spellbinder Shadow is another must-have, with magnetically charged ionized pigments that cling to eye lids. Four deep velvety shades provide intense, dimensional color payoff. For Pro-worthy application, Thomas suggests starting with a layer of Prep + Prime 24-Hour Extend Eye Base, then spritzing Prep + Prime Fix + onto a brush loaded with Spellbinder Shadow before patting onto lids.
