Today we also have a really fun podcast for you -- this time with our signature sponsors, the A&M Consumer and Retail Group

Chris and Anne sat down with Kristin and David of A&M (you should know them, so we are only using their first names) to talk all the trends happening in retail, along with a couple of ideas to which retailers should be paying more attention (click here to find out what those two ideas are).

Now to the headlines . . .

In Today's Fast Five:

  • Albertsons says it will open up 7 additional microfulfillment centers this year, which combined with Cleveron, Tortoise, Vertical Farming, and just how much we like Chris Rupp, makes Albertsons our early front runner for Retailer of the Year (Read More)
  • Amazon, the retailer that, let's be honest has probably been Retailer of the Year for the past 25 years and counting (but that's no fun), may now be taking Amazon Fresh to New York and . . . (Read More)
  • . . . also (oh sh*t) introducing commerce within its Amazon Music platform (Read More)
  • goPuff's valuation has now doubled in just five months to almost $9 billion (Read More)
  • And, GameStop has finally said to hell with comp store sales (Read More)

Anyone else have chills reading these headlines today?

We sure do.

Plus, as we alluded to above, Albertsons Chief Customer and Digital Officer Chris Rupp is top notch, and Anne interviewed her recently for her wonderful Women's Retail Collective Series, which is quite honestly probably the single best thing we do every month.

You can find the interview below or by clicking here.
