Brought to you by :

Hello Omni Talk Fans. We have some really great content for you today. Some old. Some new. And, all hot.

First off, our webinar recording from last week with NVIDIA, Dell, and AWM Smart Shelf on the future of autonomous shopping is now live (click here or see above)!

Second, today's Fast Five headlines do not disappoint:

  • Amazon has reportedly planned discount electronics and home goods stores (Read More)
  • Nordstrom is expanding its market strategy (Read More)
  • Takeoff now expects to have 40 microfulfillment centers in operation by the end of the year (Read More)
  • Fetch Rewards is indeed a unicorn after SoftBank's latest investment (Read More)
  • And, Macerich plans to throw in the towel on one of Chris's favorite malls growing up in Arizona and to convert it to mixed use, likely foreshadowing more of what is to come (Read More)

Third and finally, we have another upcoming event you DO NOT want to miss!

As part of GTC21, the upcoming virtual event that will have over 100,000 attendees, Chris will be sitting down to interview and take questions live about the future of grocery, with two executives from Kroger and Tesco, Victoria Uti and Rob Armstrong.

You can sign up to watch the interview and to attend the conference for free by clicking here or on the big feature below.

Be careful out there,

— Chris, Anne, and the entire Omni Talk team
