Today's Fast Five Tue, 03 May 2022
Fast Five
Brought to you by :

Hello Omni Talk Fans! Cue Justin Timberlake because it is no longer "gonna be May." The month is officially here, and tomorrow, for all you Star Wars fans, is May the 4th! 

May the 4th is easily one of our favorite made-up holidays, one that surpases Prime Day, Way Day, and even National Donut Day (although there could be a hole in my logic).

So to honor the occasion when thousands of Gen Xers try to relive the glory day memories of their youth, Anne and I are pleased to announce that, for our next live event on LinkedIn, we plan to to take ourselves out of our comfort zones, generationally, as we sit down with Talkdesk's Genesis Miranda Longo and Antonio Gonzalez as they help us to examine the changing dynamics of customer service and loyalty across generations.

If you are interested in keeping your mind young and nimble, you can join us for our conversation with Genesis and Antonio by clicking here or on the main image above.

In today's Fast Five Headlines:

Victoria's Secret could be signaling a watershed moment in retail as it decides to sell its beauty line through its own Amazon storefront. (Read More)
BJ's is opening a much smaller concept store (roughly 40,000 square feet) this week. (Read More)
Verizon has hopped aboard the pickup locker train as it has added 24/7 locker access to 250 of its U.S. stores. (Read More)
Kohl's, in a somewhat oddly timed move, has increased its Kohl's Rewards from 5% to 7.5% on every purchase for Kohl's Card holders because you know what always boosts traffic? Free money. (Read More)
And Publix has reportedly signed on with Instacart's nano-fulfillment service to offer 15 minute delivery in Miami. However, there is no word yet on how automated the warehouses are nor with whom Instacart is partnering on them. (Read More)

Be careful out there,

-- Chris, Anne, and the entire Omni Talk team

P.S. May the 4th be with you.

P.P.S. Always . . . unless of course you are Smokey Mc B from last week's Fast Five podcast because we are guessing the Force probably isn't his thing.
