Retailers are looking everywhere for new industrial sites atop which to build fulfillment centers, including, if you are Amazon, old golf courses and long vacated shopping malls.

Brought to you by :

Hello Omni Talk Fans. No April Fool's jokes here. March is already behind us, Spring is in the air, and our favorite Omni Talk holiday, May the 4th, is just one month and a few days away.

In Today's Fast Five:

  • Retailers are looking everywhere for new industrial sites atop which to build fulfillment centers, including, if you are Amazon, old golf courses and long vacated shopping malls (Read More)
  • Albertsons keeps raising the bar, this time with Google and the announcement of new plans to explore hyperlocal shopping maps and predictive grocery list building (Read More)
  • GameStop places a third Amazon exec within its c-suite (Read More)
  • Bed Bath & Beyond puts a former Wayfair exec in charge of its $3 billion (who knew it was that big?) e-commerce business (Read More)
  • And, Walmart appears to be bringing salad-making Ghost Kitchens stateside (Read More)

Plus, on our bookends today you will also notice a Signifyd takeover.

On April 22nd, Signifyd, a company that we have called one of the most intuitive and easiest-to-implement quick win technologies out there, is holding its annual Flow Summit.

It is a great opportunity to hear from thought leaders about anything and everything going on in direct-to-consumer commerce, no matter the size of your retail or brand operation.

We also hear that Signifyd's CMO Indy Guha is speaking too, and he quite possibly has one of the most mellifluous voices in all retail.

P.S. The below white paper gives you a great taste of the type of thought leadership you can expect at the Signifyd Flow Summit.

Chris has already quoted the statistic that 43% of the Top 500 retailers now offer curbside pickup (vs. 7% in 2019!) about five times this week in interviews.

And he owes it all to the report right below.
