Fast Five
Brought to you by :

Hello Omni Talk Fans! The best part of our ongoing relationship with the A&M Consumer & Retail Group is that they keep Anne and I honest.

In our Fast Five podcast each week, they put us on the spot with tough questions that force us to go deeper in our analysis, and so today we again asked them to help us eat what we cook.

Anne and I both came back from seeing Zara's newest flagship store in Madrid blown away by the innovation on display. To check ourselves and to ensure we didn't get too carried away, we asked A&MCRG's June DeFabio and Joanna Rangarajan to give us their experienced consultant opinions on the store.

You can hear what June and Joanna had to say by clicking here or on the image up above.

Did they agree with us? Or come away skeptical?

You will just have to watch to find out.
