Hello Omni Talks Fans! This week was chock full of great headlines. So many that it was hard for us to narrow down this week’s podcast to just five.

Not making the cut but deserving honorable mention were Trigo’s latest store with Tesco in London, Jack in the Box’s new pickup-only format in Tulsa, and Walmart’s “Crazy Larry” two-day, half off Walmart+ discount.

You know when topics like these don’t make the podcast it means that Anne and I had one heck of a production meeting/spirited fight leading up to this week’s show :)

In this week’s Fast Five Podcast Anne and I instead centered our sights on:

- Aldi’s apparent move away from Instacart by way of its new e-commerce platform partnership with Spryker

- Walmart offering short-term leases in its stores to small business via Popable

- Amazon extending Prime benefits to include 100 million songs from Amazon Music

- Abercrombie & Fitch giving frat guys everywhere the ability to pick up rugby sweaters at their nearest Walgreens

- And closed with a look at what the union troubles at the Starbucks/Amazon Go combo store in NYC signal for the future of a format that once held so much promise

There’s all that, plus Cozy Earth Apparel, Tay-Tay, and Anne’s favorite yacht rock song.
