Hermès Throws Party to Welcome Silicon Valley Store

It’s been more than seven years since Hermès opened a store in the U.S. So naturally, with the advent of the luxury brand’s new Palo Alto, Calif., boutique, the occasion warranted a little fanfare.
The Thursday evening reveal brought the Paris-based company’s stamp of luxury to the Stanford Shopping Center. Nestled between Rolex, Burberry and an Apple store, the new Hermès boutique greeted guests with an open-air concept, complete with glass windows in the front and back, as well as a skylight carved into the top of the one-story structure. The goal of the tony boutique was to bring the outdoors inside.
Guests enjoyed the space over Champagne and passed hors d’oeuvres from servers wielding caviar on blinis to pickled fruit. Some took in the luxe inventory, while others regarded the Hermès scarves on the walls, displays showcasing the classic Birkin and Kelly bags, handcrafted leather equestrian gear and horse imagery across various artworks on the walls.
Visitors arrived dressed in their best Hermès scarves, jewelry and bags. This is the Bay Area, so between the classic heels and cocktail attire, there was the odd sneaker and loafer. And because this is Silicon Valley, the space hosted tech executives from neighboring Apple — including

Suitsupply Opens Store in Brooklyn’s Williamsburg Neighborhood

Suitsupply has become a go-to spot for Millennial men seeking fashionable, modern tailored clothing. And so the Amsterdam-based company is moving into one of the neighborhoods where they spend a lot of their time: Williamsburg in Brooklyn.
On Thursday night, Suitsupply threw a party to celebrate the opening of its new store at 57 Wythe Avenue, just steps away from the Brooklyn Brewery and Brooklyn Bowl.
This store joins the company’s units in SoHo, on Madison Avenue and in Brookfield Place in Manhattan, but is its first in a borough.
“We have a huge customer base here,” said Fokke de Jong, founder and chief executive officer of Suitsupply, who was in New York to host the party. “This area is booming and we have a good, solid online business here, so it’s a very logical place for us to open. It’s so cool to make landfall here.”
The store is located in the same building as the William Vale boutique hotel, which has a popular rooftop bar and pool. “At night and on the weekends, people are always strolling around. There are a lot of younger families and young people, so it’s cool for us to make landfall here.”

“We envisioned this as a space that’s always changing, a place where we could host events for the community,” said Lim. Indeed, while some of the collectible furniture pieces remained the same over the year, others were added or moved to make way for art installations. The clothes and shoes were not the focus but instead a small edit of pieces displayed as one-off installations themselves.
Others were worn by those in attendance, including 3.1 Phillip Lim chief executive officer and cofounder Wen Zhou, models Sami Miro and Chloe Norgaard and actor Jack Falahee.

Hogan Debuts AR Experience at New Milan Store

MILAN — Hogan feted the relocation of its Milan flagship on tony shopping street Via Montenapoleone, 5 to coincide with Milan Design Week, running April 17 to 22.
The old space, a few blocks away, is now under renovation to accommodate the Milanese Balenciaga store.
Hogan’s new opening marks the worldwide unveiling of the brand’s augmented reality experience. The AR, which is set to land in other Hogan boutiques by the end of April, mimics the journey of a photographer seeking for inspiration around Milan’s hot spots, along with a group of friends.
The concept, which already rolled out in the Beijing and Shanghai units, was conceived by London-based design studio Checkland Kindleysides and it was inspired by the work of Umberto Boccioni, one of the Italian artists who shaped the local Futurism art movement.
The idea of movement inspired the space set up. As Sergio Azzolari, the brand’s general manager, said, “[This is] an aesthetic code, which is often associated with the brand. Actually, [the new store concept] is also a branding operation,” he explained.

This Grocery Store is Actually Way Cheaper Than Shopping at Walmart


Still shopping at Walmart because you think it’s the cheapest place to buy groceries?

As it turns out, you might actually be able to find a better deal in town.

While it’s still got a blue sign, “mart” is nowhere in its name.

It’s Aldi, the small, German grocer you may not have heard about yet, but definitely need to check out ASAP.

Its deals will knock your socks off. Don’t believe us? Keep reading.

Shopping for the Cheapest Grocery Store: Aldi vs. Walmart

While planning for our office’s crazy 2016 Thanksgiving feast, we compared prices for all our menu items at Walmart, our local regional grocer (Publix), and Aldi.

What we found was… honestly kind of nuts.

We’d easily save a ridiculous amount of cash, without having to sink a single second into couponing, just by shopping at Aldi. It had frozen Butterball turkeys for just $ 1.29 per pound — almost half of what they cost at Publix ($ 2.49 per pound).

And although it’s not surprising this discount market did better than a swanky store, it outperformed Walmart pretty handily, too.

A five-pound bag of potatoes ran us $ 2.79 as opposed to Walmart’s $ 3.47. A dozen large eggs cost just 99 cents — while the ‘mart had ‘em at $ 1.14.

Even something that seems like it’d be crazy cheap everywhere, like cornstarch, was significantly different: Walmart had a pound of it at $ 1.18, whereas Aldi’s was just 89 cents. It was even the same brand.

Business Insider also did a price comparison between the two stores and found the same groceries cost 30% less at Aldi than they did at Walmart.

Although a few items, like tomatoes and organic bananas, were cheaper at Walmart, Aldi had surprisingly great deals on both fresh produce and packaged foods.

But don’t forget: Walmart will price-match any competitor, and one of the reasons Aldi can sell its goods so cheaply is a lack of investment in customer service.

Our team decided to shop Aldi for the majority of its Thanksgiving purchases, and it’s true that there wasn’t much of a customer service presence in the store. That said, nothing’s too difficult to find… and if we’d needed to, we’re sure we could have asked a cashier.

Aldi also requires buyers to bring their own bags, and there’s a 25-cent deposit to get a shopping cart. But you get your quarter back when you replace the cart — and Aldi doesn’t have to hire somebody to do that job, which means it’s putting even more coins back into our pockets.

So if you live near an Aldi, check it out. We’ve even put together some insider tips to help you get even more out of the money you spend there.

Just make sure you don’t forget your reusable bags — or your laundry quarters!

Cover Band: discover fresh artwork on National Record Store Day 2018

As vinyl sales return to levels not seen since the Nineties, fresh cover art by artists such as rock music photographer Michael Spencer Jones is also drawing attention. It’s time to celebrate exclusive music-art collaborations once more…

What album artwork is the most iconic? Which musician or band produced the most memorable cover art? From The Beatles’ Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band to FKA Twigs’ LP1, via Nirvana’s Nevermind, the eponymous The Velvet Underground & Nico and Oasis’ Definitely Maybe, some album art reaches beyond the discs it covers to become an entity all of its own. The imagery produced by the likes of Sir Peter Blake and Jann Haworth, Jess Kanda, Kirk Weddle, Andy Warhol and Michael Spencer Jones, is as much a part of the experience as the music – it moved into our collective consciousness and onto the walls of our homes.


But, as music consumption went digital, for many of us cover art took a step back; because physical CDs, cassettes (remember those?) and vinyl (old-school) weren’t so prominent, to an extent the art used to sell them was relegated to posters and paste-ups.

Vinyl has, however, made a major – and unexpected – comeback in the past few years, with physical sales defying critics to continue to rise a further 26.7 per cent in the past year alone. And with a demand for physical records comes… shiny new and creative vinyl sleeves!

At one point, a commission to create a record sleeve for a prominent or emerging band was seen as a major career goal and achievement. As well as crossing industries to collaborate with artists working in another field, it promised high visibility for a visual artist or photographer’s work. Our own family of artrepublic artists are no strangers to this: Dan Hillier produced the sleeve for Royal Blood’s’ Falls; Storm Thorgerson worked with the likes of Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin; Terry Pastor’s art adorned album covers for David Bowie and The Beach Boys, and that’s just for starters. Today, if the popularity of the annual Secret 7” cover art competition is anything to go by, the enthusiasm for working on sleeve art remains strong.

With all that in mind, what better way to shout about (and enjoy) the recent record store revival than with a whole day dedicated to the places we discover new music and unearth old gems? National Record Store Day does just that. On 21 April, more than 200 independent record stores in the UK join together to celebrate their culture, with exclusive vinyl releases as well as live performances and one-off events.

This year we are getting behind it with a launch of our own – Michael Spencer Jones’ new print release, ‘Be Here Now Night’, which you can see in artrepublic’s Brighton gallery. A fixture in the ‘Madchester’ music scene of the 1990s, Spencer Jones is the photographer behind some of Oasis’ most recognisable album art – Definitely Maybe, What’s The Story – as well as The Verve’s Urban Hymns.

This latest print is a nighttime shot of the famed 1997 album Be Here Now, with artwork that shows Oasis (plus glowing red Vespa) in various stances around a swimming pool. With subtle differences from the daytime shot, you can hang the two images side-by-side at home and play spot the difference!

Spencer Jones’ night prints are available on a white or black background – the latter is from a specially released anniversary version, from a super-limited edition of 25. Both limited editions are signed by the photographer.

Be Here Now Night is released on National Record Store Day. Find out more about these prints, and our other musically inspired visual artists, by having a chat with one of our gallery art advisors, or by browsing the artrepublic music category.

Birkenstock Box x Rick Owens Debuts at His Los Angeles Store

Following stops in Berlin with Andreas Murkudis, New York with Barneys New York and Milan with 10 Corso Como, Birkenstock’s mobile, spatial retail concept known as Birkenstock Box lands in Los Angeles today in partnership with Rick Owens through April 21.
“I feel like The Box is a natural extension of my store spilling out onto the street,” said Owens. He’s a fan of the iconic footwear, noting, “I wear them every summer on the Lido beach in Venice.”

Starbucks Apologizes After Boycott Erupts Over Video of Black Men Arrested in Philadelphia Store

Starbucks has apologized after a boycott erupted over a video of two black men being arrested inside a Philadelphia store, which led to accusations of racism on social media.

As viral videos of the incident show, officers handcuffed the two men in a Starbucks location in Philadelphia’s downtown district on Thursday.

At one point in the video, a white man can be heard explaining that he was meeting with the men and describing the arrest situation with police officers as “ridiculous.”

Police Commissioner Richard Ross said in a Facebook video that employees at the coffee store called 911 to report two men who were trespassing. Ross explained that the officers were told the two men requested to use the restroom when they came into the store but were denied because they hadn’t made a purchase — a company policy. Ross said the men refused to leave, even when police asked them to depart the premises three times, and that the officers “did absolutely nothing wrong.”

“As an African American male, I am very aware of implicit bias; we are committed to fair and unbiased policing,” Ross said. “If a business calls and they say that ‘Someone is here that I no longer wish to be in my business,’ [officers] now have a legal obligation to carry out their duties and they did just that.”

“We apologize to the two individuals and our customers and are disappointed this led to an arrest,” Starbucks said in a statement shared on Twitter Saturday. “We take these matters seriously and clearly have more work to do when it comes to how we handle incidents in our stores. We are reviewing our policies and will continue to engage with the community and the police department to try to ensure these types of situations never happen in any of our stores.”

Hermès Converts N.Y. Men’s Store Into Record Shop

NEW YORK — Hermès has gotten the memo.
The French luxury brand has taken the movement toward experiential retailing to the next level, completely transforming its men’s store here into a vinyl record store for 10 days.
On Thursday night, the Madison Avenue emporium debuted Silk Mix, an art installation centered around music that has already been showcased in Madrid and Rome and now makes its way into the U.S.
“It’s all about silk and music,” said Robert Chavez, chief executive officer of Hermès. The concept was the brainchild of Véronique Nichanian, artistic director of Hermès men’s wear, and Christophe Goineau, creative director of men’s silk. They worked with Thierry Planelle, who has curated music for the company’s men’s shows for the last 15 years, to bring the idea to life.
The main floor was reworked to replicate an old-fashioned record store with bins of albums on display and a bank of turntables to give them a spin. But these albums had an Hermès twist: each of the covers sported a different silk design from the men’s assortment. “There are 225 styles and 53 different patterns,” Chavez said. “And you can pick your favorite and then play it.”

The album covers were all created from

Karl Lagerfeld to Open First U.S. Store in SoHo Saturday

Karl Lagerfeld is ready to take SoHo by storm.
On Saturday, the Karl Lagerfeld brand will open its first U.S. store at 420 West Broadway in New York, which features a mix of Lagerfeld’s European collection and Karl Lagerfeld Paris, which is a joint venture with G-III Apparel Group.
“The moment seems to be right and the space is great,” Lagerfeld told WWD. He noted that distribution of his signature brand, re-launched in the burgeoning masstige category in 2012, first put down retail roots in Europe and then China. “Our first tests in the U.S. were great.”
Inspired by the designer’s personal home and studio, the 3,230-square-foot store has a sophisticated yet inviting, open feel. Each of the furnishings has an unusual story behind it, from antique mirrors to velvet chairs and luxurious marble finishes to the giant Tokidoki silver cartoon sculpture of Lagerfeld — with a ponytail — holding his famous feline, Choupette. A bespoke carpet has a red border around its edges, similar to the border that the designer draws on all of his sketches. A full-size photograph of Lagerfeld, wearing fingerless gloves and chains, and taking a photo with his camera, greets visitors at the entrance.

Scammers, Beware: Retailers Are Tracking Your Store Return Habits

Customers may have to return an item for any number of reasons. And while this is mostly seen by retailers as a cost of doing business, few people are aware that in many cases their returns are being tracked and those instances are being tabulated into a score.

One customer who took three cellphone cases back to the returns desk at a Best Buy in Mission Viejo, California, was told that he would be barred “from making returns and exchanges” from the store for one year, the Journal reports.

Much of this can be traced back to an Irvine, California-based company called The Retail Equation (TRE), which records and scores customers’ return activity. The company’s services are used in more than 34,000 stores, according to the report.

The company cites statistics showing that stores lose $ 10.8 to $ 17.6 billion a year in the United States — and $ 1.2 to $ 1.7 billion a year in Canada — to fraudulent activity committed by customers.

While businesses have long tried to keep track of customers who exploit their return policy guidelines, what’s interesting about TRE is that the firm has been given the authority to enforce return policies on the behalf of many of its clients, with penalties ranging from year-long banishment to barring exchanges altogether.

The Retail Equation boasts that it uses a number of analytical tools to help retailers cut down on fraud and ” identify the approximately 1% of consumers whose behaviors mimic return fraud or abuse.”

One of TRE’s most common anti-theft products is Verify Return Authorization, “which uses statistical modeling and analytics to detect fraudulent and abusive behavior when returns are processed at retailers’ return counters,” the company says on its site.

“Good” customers are also rewarded by retailers’ use of TRE’s software at the point of sale or return, the company says. On its website, the firm advertises a way for consumers to get a copy of their Return Activity Report.

Retailers are stuck between worlds when it comes to returns. Because of the rise of abuse, many merchants, especially big ones, have had to tighten their return policies in recent years. Meanwhile, online retailers are conditioning customers to expect lenient return policies.

“We are hired by the retailers to review the returns, look for suspicious situations and issue approvals, warnings or denials,” Tom Rittman, an Appriss marketing vice president, was quoted as saying. “You could do things that are inside the posted rules, but if you are violating the intent of the rules, like every item you’re purchasing you’re using and then returning, then at a certain point in time you become not a profitable customer for that retailer.”

This is how the system works, according to TRE: When you go to make a return, the salesperson will scan the original receipt and/or swipe your license or ID to verify your identification and your unique “return behavior.”

These unique parameters stay with you as you return merchandise you bought in-store or online. TRE uses this data to compare things such as frequency of your returns, purchase history and dollar amount against a threshold set by the retailer.

If your “risk score” comes back below that threshold, the salesperson will be directed to deny your return or state that your next one will not be permitted or be on some other conditional basis.

Now that you know that a third party may not only be tracking your return, but also deciding whether to accept it not, you can make the best decision on how to contest that decision in the event that you are denied and contact TRE at Info@TheRetailEquation.com.

Tales from the Wallet: How Do You Store Your Bills, Receipts, and More?

how to store billsHere’s today’s topic, ladies: What are your best tips on how to store bills and otherwise organize your paperwork? How do you deal with the mix of paperwork, electronic documents, emailed receipts, and more? I describe my own record keeping system below, but I thought it’d be fun to see what other people do… 

I was 15 or so the first time I remember my parents talking about how to store bills, receipts, and other kinds of paperwork. By that point I already had savings accounts, and my mother also opened some early credit cards for me at various stores (thank you, Mom!) to start building my credit report. But it was probably when I got my first job that we actually sat down and started to talk about how to store bills, as well as other record keeping tips. Back then, my parents gave me a big subdivided redweld and suggested that each entity that I got bills and statements from should get its own little pocket. So my bank statements went in one pocket, my lifeguarding check receipts went in another pocket, and then my Gap card statements (or wherever) went in a third pocket. It was all very, very organized. Oh, and every time I made a deposit at my bank (or a withdrawal) I was supposed to enter it in the little checkbook register.

These days, I’ve backslid pretty far from that initial system for record keeping — but it works for me and my family. Here’s how I store my bills (both electronic and paper):

  • One folder per year: All Griffin family bills, statements, and receipts went in one folder for the year 2017, roughly in order of date but certainly not organized. I attempt to put “important papers” in the front of the folder — charity donation receipts, large purchases, etc. For the papers I often scribbled “PIF 3/1 Check 743” at the top, meaning the bill was paid in full on that date. Sometimes I’ll also write STBPIF 3/1 — scheduled to be paid in full on 3/1 — but I do that far less often than I used to. (I never file a document unless it’s been paid, but it was something I started doing while getting our accounts in order for labor and we’ve continued since — but it’s probably also just a good practice for married money management.) This folder gets huge by the end of the year so I try my best to remove staples, unfold documents, and so on, so I can keep everything to one folder.
    • Wherever possible these days I download statements to a year-specific folder on my desktop — and for some I’ve completely turned off paper billing — but there’s a lot of overlap between my “2018 billings” folder on my computer and my “2018 bills” folder in my filing cabinet. I try to download statements for an entire year at a time, rather than piecemeal, so it’s often done as part of my tax review. Labeling the documents can be hit or miss — in my perfect world, if the doc I’m downloading has a default file name of “document.pdf” (insert eyeroll emoji here) then I want to keep “document” at the front of the file name and only add something minimal (like the date) after it so that all the downloaded bills of the same type are kept together. (The desktop is backed up with Carbonite.)
    • Reviewing transactions: If I need to review transactions or charges I’m more likely to check Mint first before going to the individual account online. I pretty much only use the paper and downloaded docs for insurance in case I can’t check things online and need the doc later.
    • Trashing docs: I think I have thrown away previous folders if I happened to find them and they were more than 7 years ago — but I don’t have a great review system for throwing them out.
  • All business-related bills, statements, and receipts go in a second year-specific folder.
  • Medical statements get their own folder. I finally started putting them in a different folder entirely, only roughly subdivided by year by way of a bright paper — but this way if I need to check whether we’ve paid the bill for Visit 3 on X date I can check the records and not have to dig through a zillion different Internet/mortgage/credit card statements.
  • Tax docs: Anything that looks like it will be helpful for tax time (like 1099s that come in Jan./Feb.) goes in a separate folder.
  • How I keep track of how much money we have in our checking account: In terms of keeping track of how much money we have in the account — there are so many automatic investments, payments, and other transfers flying around between my accounts that it would be impossible to keep track with my checkbook — I use my checkbook register to keep track only of which check is for what. Our accounts are admittedly harder because I pay myself a different amount every month, but I have a separate Excel document set up that helps me keep track of how much money is coming into our general checking from my business accounts (the number varies every month — and then I move over a percentage of that to separate Ally holding accounts for my taxes and retirement), as well as money is going out from our automatic investments, payments, and so forth, such as mortgage, 529, etc.). If the number that we expect to be left in our checking ever dips below a certain amount then I’ll move more money around to make sure that we have enough to cover a withdrawal or check or two. (My minimum for checking right now is $ 1,500, but we try to keep $ 5,000 in the saving account attached to the bank so we can move money over ASAP if we need it. Anything more than that is in various Ally accounts.)

My system is far from perfect — and I’m sure some people (like my parents!) still have that subdivided redweld for each individual entity. I know some people who’ve committed to only downloading documents and have gone backwards several years to get all relevant statements. (Does anyone have a security system for their downloaded documents?) What’s your record keeping system? How do you store your bills?

The Tie Bar to Open Philadelphia Store

The Tie Bar continues to expand its retail reach.
The Chicago-based men’s brand, which launched as strictly an online player, will add its fifth brick-and-mortar store in Philadelphia next month.
The store will be located at 1527 Walnut Street in the ground floor of The Beacon apartment building. The 900-square-foot unit is slated to open on April 9 and will join the two Tie Bar stores in Chicago as well as units in New York  and Boston.
“We couldn’t be happier bringing The Tie Bar to Philadelphia, it’s a rapidly growing market for us and offers so much potential to expand our in-person business,” said Allyson Lewis, chief executive officer. “Our existing stores continue to buck the retail trends of late, providing our clientele a unique in-person shopping experience while remaining profitable for the brand. An aggressive retail strategy was essential to our further growth this year and it made perfect sense for that to include Philadelphia.”
The store will offer the brand’s assortment of furnishings and accessories — dress shirts, neckties, bow ties, tie bars, pocket squares, belts, socks, shoelaces. It will also offer the company’s newest product category: dress pants. The pants will be available starting on March 20 and will be sold

Amazon Dishes About Its First Amazon Go Cashier-Free Store

So far, so good, say the top executives overseeing the Amazon Go, the online retailer’s first cashier-free grocery store.

Customers have tended to linger, almost surprised that they can just leave the store without lining up, and returning frequently in the first two months since the first Amazon Go location opened in Seattle, said Amazon vice president Gianna Puerini.

“What we didn’t necessarily expect is how many people would stop at the end, on their first trip or two, and ask, ‘Is it really okay if I just leave?” Puerini said on Sunday at Shoptalk, a retail industry conference in Las Vegas.

In a new concept that threatens to upend grocery retailing, Amazon Go makes no use of cashiers, but instead relies on shoppers using smartphone apps to signal they’re in the store. Cameras and sensors inside then track what shoppers take from shelves and what they put back–and then charges them as they exit the door, using credit card information that is on file.

The technology threatens to push Amazon stores well ahead of rivals and upend how people shop at small grocery and convenience stores. Puerini said there are no plans to implement the technology in Whole Foods Market, the upscale grocery chain Amazon bought last year for $ 13 billion, despite Wall Street analysts’ speculation.

Other insights from the cashier-free store is that the top-selling item is chicken sandwiches–likely a result of regular business from nearby office workers. Meal kits and fresh fruit are also popular.

Though Amazon has not said whether and how much it may expand the concept, the technology is already proving to be something it could use more widely: the Amazon Go app gives it customer feedback in real time and helps dictate what the store should stock. That is becoming an imperative across retail because chains, whether selling sandwiches or cashmere sweaters, don’t want to miss out on sales, or conversely, find themselves with unsold merchandise they have to chuck or sell at clearance prices.

One example? Amazon Go heard from vegans who were annoyed about the cheese mixed into the salads, so it now offers cheese on the side, said Dilip Kumar, vice president of technology of Amazon Go and Amazon Books, said at Shoptalk.

There is a veritable arms race in grocery retail. Last week, Walmart announced it was expanding delivery across the country, while Target recently added same-day delivery to its arsenal.

While coy about how Amazon Go is faring, the executives said that shopping frequency and sales and other metrics would dictate any expansion plans. Tech news site Recode recently reported the e-commerce giant plans six more Amazon Go cashier-free stores this year.

Dollar Store Groceries Aren’t Gross: Here’s My Shopping List


I. Love. Dollars stores. (Said in my best Oprah “I love bread” voice.) Specifically, I love Dollar Tree. You might know it as a mecca for affordable crafting supplies. But what you might not know is that the discount chain is also a great spot to supplement your grocery budget.

I’m not just talking snack foods, here. Over the years, whether I’ve found myself on an exceedingly strict budget or have just been my normal penny-pinching self, I’ve often seen the neon green storefront as a beacon of respite from the unnecessarily high prices of grocery stores.

Mind you, I won’t sit here and tell you that every food item stocked on the shelves is worth tossing in your cart. There are some definite misses.

Take the $ 1 3.5-ounce ribeye steak the chain has proudly touted in several locations. When I saw this, I was admittedly taken aback. But then, curiosity got the better of me, and I gave it a try; let’s say I did this so that you, my friends, don’t ever have to.

While the thin, tough slice of what was technically ribeye was decidedly not worth the money — I’d sooner hit up the McDonald’s dollar menu for a cheap red-meat fix — there are plenty of Dollar Tree items that are.

Before we get started, there is one thing you should note: as with all things Dollar Tree, these things are not guaranteed to be in every location, though this will give you a good idea of what to expect.

While the company’s practice is not to discuss any specifics about its relationship with vendors, the following are items I’ve found are consistently on the shelves.

Meals

A woman holds uncooked spaghetti noodles.
Spaghetti is one food item you can get at the Dollar Tree for only $ 1. Tina Russell/The Penny Hoarder

Pancake mix

For around half the price (or less) than you’ll normally find, the boxed pancake mix here is usually the “just add water” type, so the only other thing you’ll have to pick up is syrup, which can usually be found on the same shelf.

Frozen Full Breakfasts

You may recognize Brown ’N Serve as a freezer-aisle staple for breakfast sausages. These single-serving meals include two pancakes, waffles or French toast, plus sausage links and hash browns.

Bread

Loaves of bread — and other bread products — abound at Dollar Tree. Of course there’s the go-to sliced white bread, but you can also find hamburger and hot dog buns, flour tortillas and even pizza crusts.

Eggs

I was surprised the first time I saw fresh eggs, but they’re there, and the price can’t be beat. Carton sizes vary, but I’ve seen anywhere from eight-count all the way up to 18, all for the same low price.

Cereal

Choose wisely before picking up cereal here. Do buy the 12-ounce boxes of cereal, if available. But don’t be fooled by the mini boxes or bags of brand-name cereals. A 3-ounce package of Fruit Loops is going to cost you a heck of a lot more (by volume) than a normal-size box at full price.

Sliced Deli Meat

This is one of those items that really requires you to have an idea of your local deli prices to determine the value. The four-ounce packs of turkey or ham work out to just $ 4 per pound. I’ve also seen larger (think: 16 ounces), albeit less nutritious, packages of bologna. (C’mon, perfect excuse to justify making a fried bologna sandwich.)

Pasta

A box of spaghetti noodles sold from the Dollar Tree.
Do you like pasta? Spaghetti can be found at the Dollar Tree for only $ 1. Tina Russell/The Penny Hoarder

This is another you’ve got to use a little judgment on. If it’s an immediate need, the price is right for a 1-pound box of pasta, but sometimes local grocery-store sales can score you a better bargain.

Cheese

Yes, you read that right. Dollar Tree sells cheese! My advice: go for the 6-ounce cheese blocks, when available. This is the real stuff, and for such a good price. You’ll probably find shredded cheese too, but just know it’s not going to be “real” cheese, meaning nothing short of nuclear fire will melt it.

Frozen Meats

For the most part, when it comes to meats at Dollar Tree, we’re going to be looking at college-student-style dinners. There’s popcorn chicken and meatballs, individual chicken-patty sandwiches and even White Castle hamburger sliders. Kumar was nowhere to be found.

Frozen French Fries

Not gonna lie, I got super excited when I first saw my local Dollar Tree stocked with sweet potato fries, and I just about cleaned them out. I don’t think those are consistently around, but you should at least be able to find shoestring fries.

TV Dinners

The brands and varieties are in constant flux, but over time I’ve seen macaroni and cheese, orange chicken, spaghetti and meatballs and even biscuits and gravy. (The latter prominently featured the visage of comedian Larry the Cable Guy… yes, him having a brand of frozen dinners is actually a thing.)

Snacks

Soft pretzels

This is my go-to Dollar Tree snack. Just throw one (or two or three) on a cookie sheet and heat it up in the oven for a few minutes. Sprinkle some salt on top and you’re good to go. When I was last there, I even saw a bag of bite-size frozen pretzels, perfect for a gathering.

Pastries

Mini vanilla cream puffs is one of many desserts you can get at the Dollar Tree for only $  1.
Do you have a sweet tooth? Mini vanilla cream puffs are one of many desserts you can get at the Dollar Tree for only $ 1. One package contains eight cream puffs. Tina Russell/The Penny Hoarder

You read that right. Before you ask, no, I’m not talking about fresh pastries. (Wouldn’t that be nice?) But check out the freezer section, and you can find things like mini iced eclairs and vanilla cream puffs.

Chips

Unlike most other dollar stores, this place actually has the brands you know and love: Cheez Doodles, Cheetos, Lays, Funyuns, Doritos and T.G.I. Friday’s–brand potato skins chips.

Candy

Without a doubt, Dollar Tree is a mecca of candy. And it’s not just the strange things you’ve never heard of before. They have all brand-name staples, like Twizzlers, Werther’s Original, Skittles, M&Ms, Snickers, Haribo and more.

Soda: It’s not surprising to find off-brand 2-liter bottles of soda on the shelves of any dollar store, but I was a little shocked to find the über trendy La Croix adorning shelves when I last visited.

Condiments

Soy Sauce is one of many condiments you can get at the Dollar Tree for $  1.
Soy sauce is one of many condiments you can find at the Dollar Tree for $ 1. Tina Russell/The Penny Hoarder

Fixins

You know what I mean. All those sauces and spreads you find in every pantry: ketchup, mustard, relish, hot sauce, soy sauce and beyond.

Spices

We’re not just talking salt and pepper here, people. (Though both are there.) There’s allspice, chili powder, crushed red pepper, garlic powder, paprika and parsley, among others. And before you ask if these are tiny sample-sized bottles, they’re actually the real deal, just like you would find when shopping for, say, McCormick-brand spices (the larger ones) at a regular grocery store.

Cooking spray

I always stock up on cooking spray from Dollar Tree. However, I suggest sticking with the canola or coconut oil sprays and avoiding the butter spray. I’m not a fan of how the latter cooks on higher heat.

Sweetener

I basically live off of coffee (always decaf — I know, I know, but that’s another story) so Dollar Tree’s selection of knockoff Splenda, Equal and Sweet’N Low, plus Sugar in the Raw, is a godsend.

As you can see, this place is not your run-of-the-mill dollar store and, while not a complete substitute for your local grocery store, Dollar Tree can really help soften the blow to your bank account whenever you need some basic pantry staples. (And then some.)

10 dollar store ‘deals’ that are actually duds

If you like to save money, you probably love the dollar store!

But some things at the dollar store aren’t a deal because you can easily find better prices at your local big-box store or supermarket.

RELATED: Clark Howard’s top 5 retailers to watch in 2018

Consider skipping these 10 dollar store products

Despite their generic name, what we call “dollar stores” aren’t a monolith.

The true dollar stores like Dollar Tree and the 99 Cents Only chain sell everything for $ 1 or less. But others like Dollar General and Family Dollar sell merchandise at a variety of price points.

Navigating those unexpected differences in price point isn’t all that hard. The real threat and challenge comes because you have to watch the product size of whatever it is you’re buying for the price you’re paying.

If you don’t, it’s easy to fall in the trap of loading up your cart at the dollar store when you could be getting a better deal down the street. This is especially true when you look at the unit price on food items and household necessities at Dollar Tree!

Tribune News Service is out with a new list of dollar store items that are routinely cheaper elsewhere. All prices are sourced by Tribune and compared with prices from other retailers’ websites.

1. Toothpaste

Dollar Tree sells a 2.9-ounce tube of Crest regular paste for $ 1. But Walmart sells a pack of three 6.4-ounce tubes for $ 5.

Which one is cheaper relative to how much product you’re getting for the amount your paying?

The truth is Walmart’s offer beats Dollar Tree because its triple pack has a unit price of 26 cents per ounce — that’s eight cents per ounce cheaper than at Dollar Tree.

2. Soap

The sudsy stuff sells for 15.6 cents per ounce at Dollar Tree when you’re talking about a pack of two 3.2-ounce Dial antibacterial soap bars.

But Walmart has a six-pack of four-ounce bars for $ 2.97. That’s just 12 cents per ounce!

3. Pain relievers

Dollar Tree sells 40 caplets of 500 mg acetaminophen for 2.5 cents per caplet. But Target’s price is only 1.4 cents per caplet when you buy the $ 6.99 bottle of 500 caplets.

The best deal of all, however, is at Costco. Their $ 8.49 bottle of 1,000 caplets prices out at less than 1 cent per caplet.

Consider this: You’d have to pay $ 25 to get the same amount of 500 mg acetaminophen caplets at Dollar Tree that you get at Costco for $ 8.49.

Now that’s a really headache-inducing thought!

4. Breakfast cereal

Love Cap’n Crunch cereal? Skip the 5.5-ounce box for $ 1 at Dollar Tree and get the 40-ounce bag for $ 4 at Walmart in its place.

You’ll save eight cents per ounce in the process!

5. Salt

Remember the old Morton Salt ad that said, “When it rains, it pours”?

Well, you can make money rain down in your life if you buy your iodized salt at the grocery store, not the dollar store.

Kroger charges 49 cents for a 26-ounce canister of salt, while Dollar Tree charges one buck.

6. Canned vegetables

Dollar Tree charges more than both Kroger and Walmart for a smaller can in this category.

The dollar store prices its 15-ounce can of corn at $ 1. Compare that to Kroger (59 cents) and Walmart (50 cents), which both sell a slightly larger 15.25-ounce can of corn.

7. Tunafish

A five-ounce can of Van Camp’s Chicken of the Sea tuna will run you a buck at Dollar Tree. Walmart, on the other hand, has a cheaper unit price of 90.5 cents per five-ounce can, but you have to buy a four-pack for $ 3.62 to get that lower price.

8. Rice

Need to stock up on this pantry staple? Skip the dollar store and head to your grocery store.

Dollar Tree has a unit price of 50 cents per pound for a 32-ounce package of long-grain white rice. Meanwhile, Kroger’s 5-pound bag sells for $ 2.19 — that’s just 44 cents per pound.

9. Name brand cleaning supplies

Walmart charges just 88 cents for a 28-ounce container of Ajax. Yet Dollar Tree sells the same product in the same size for $ 1.

When it comes to cleaning products at the dollar store, you’re probably better off going with no-name products rather than brand-name ones. For example, some members of Team Clark have raved about a variety of $ 1 cleaning products from the L.A.’s Totally Awesome brand at Dollar Tree.

10. Name brand laundry detergent

Few shoppers can resist the lure of a major brand like Tide at the dollar store. But paying $ 1 for 10 ounces of Tide Clean and Fresh at Dollar Tree equates to paying a unit price of 10 cents per ounce.

Yet Walmart’s 138-ounce bottle of Tide Clean and Fresh costs $ 8.94. That’s just 6 cents per ounce!

Z Supply Enters Retail Fray With Fashion Island Store

Z Supply LLC has opened its first store with plans of growing its retail footprint over time.
The 1,362-square-foot temporary store at Fashion Island in Newport Beach carries the company’s namesake basics brand and is also set to be used to test categories from the line.
The assortment includes the women’s collection in addition to some pieces from the Z Supply men’s line. The company will also sell items from its Zoo Supply line for pets, which launched last year.
The Fashion Island pop-up is scheduled to be open for a period of three to six months.
Z Supply chief operating officer Heidi Muther called the timing right to look at retail, as the company follows the game plans of a number of born-online brands or businesses with traditional wholesale models exploring direct-to-consumer through physical retail in a bid to learn more about their respective consumer bases.
Z Supply, the brand, has seen steady growth since its 2013 launch and is in more than 2,000 stores in the U.S. It’s part of a portfolio of brands created by Z Supply LLC that includes Black Swan, White Crow, Others Follow, Rag Poets, Icons of Culture and Pirate Surf.

Ingenious maternity store has a cravings bar

by

Maggie Downs

posted in Life

The New York Times’ Critical Shopper column recently turned an eye to Hatch, the chic New York store for millennial mamas-to-be.

It’s not just that Hatch offers clothes for “before, during, and after” pregnancy — a concept they call “maternity-ish” — like the cutest slouchy dresses I’ve ever seen, and a $ 238 jumpsuit that I personally would pee through because I wouldn’t be able to wrangle it off my swollen body.

What’s novel here is that Hatch is specifically designed to cater to pregnant women.

That includes diaper changing stations; size charts in the changing room to help you accommodate a rapidly changing body; and a cravings bar.

HOLD UP. Yes, I said a cravings bar, complete with candy, pickles, and fancy ice cream.

This already sounds like the best buffet ever. Here is what I’m imagining.

Ice cream cone in a mason jar and a small bag of caramel popcorn

 

However, I didn’t actually crave any of those things when I was pregnant. I was fueled by a desire for curry, dosas, and anything spicy. (Also put popcorn and black olives in there too. And fruit. I drowned myself in fruit.)

A bowl of brown-looking curry with naan bread, sprinkled with cilantro

 

If Hatch is looking to expand their offerings in the future, here are some other things I craved:

• A bed with a hole in the mattress, so I could nap face-down on my stomach.

• A butt massage. (Hey, don’t knock it ‘til you’ve tried it.)

• People who aren’t my partner/my best friends to tell me I’m pretty and glowing and powerful.

• A nice pedicure.

• Someone to tell me exactly what I need for a baby and fill out the darn registry for me already.

• Tacos.

• A virgin cocktail that feels like I’m drinking something sophisticated and grown-up. Not a Shirley Temple.

• Another butt massage.

Jerome LaMaar Using 9J Store to Relaunch Collection

After taking an 18-month break from showing, Jerome LaMaar will return to New York Fashion Week Feb. 6 at Tumblr’s headquarters. Five years after he started his collection, the designer has spent two years building up his 9J online business and boutique in the Bronx. Through advising other designers, he said he developed a better sense for what to sell in the store, he said. “What I learned in this process was that customers didn’t really care about other brands. When they came to the store, they wanted pieces from me.”
LaMaar is all about figuring out what makes his customers come to the Bronx to shop. Beyoncé and Tina Knowles helped to raise his profile two years ago by wearing his designs and posting their support. Cardi B’s stylist Kollin Carter has pulled pieces from his line, and Carter recently told WWD that LaMaar is on their wish list. “And she’s from the Bronx,” LaMaar said.
Guests at his “very simple” presentation will find the designer’s fragrance, eyewear, bedding, chairs, furniture and unisex men’s wear. The plan is to show buy-now unisex styles that can be purchased immediately. The color palette has also been toned down, with black, ash and dark

The Paris Vintage Shoe Store That’s a Resource for Top Designers

PARIS — Situated among orthopedic shoe stores, natural wine bars and bobo restaurants, La Petite Fripe sells vintage footwear to fashion designers and their Parisian muses.
The pocket-sized boutique, located in the 11th arrondissement’s trendier zone, exclusively sells unworn, dead stock vintage shoes. While only open since September, the store has quickly culled a fan base including girl-about-town Clara Cornet, model Louise Follain and actress Pauline Jacquard. It has also become a sourcing ground of inspiration for footwear designers at some of Paris’ leading fashion houses, with designers accounting for half the shop’s sales.
Founded by antique and vintage dealer Lhassan Oubakrim, La Petite Fripe’s shelves have recently housed an assortment of Eighties metallic mule pumps, dandy loafers and embroidered mukluk boots. Shoes are typically priced around 80 euros, with boots hitting the highest price point at about 280 euros.

Pink cries with fellow mom in grocery store: “It’s so hard. Y’all.”

by

Sara McGinnis

posted in Parenting

Do you know why it is so many moms are endeared to certain famous counterparts, such as Chrissy Teigen and Pink?

I’ve long believed it to be because of their ability to be open and share their lives despite inevitable criticism, but I’m realizing it’s even more specific than that. Plenty share highlights, but we have a special love for the few that can share their fails.

Pink, who shares 6-year-old daughter Willow and 1-year-old son Jameson with husband Carey Hart, recently had it bluntly pointed out to her by a fellow mom at the grocery store. The singer’s tweet detailing the encounter:

Group hug, all. (Said in the sincerest of ways. Parenting really is a long, wild ride.)

Pink with son and daughter

Pink’s tweet has inspired others to share their stories of random kindness encounters. Here’s a sweet one from a woman named Betty:

I’m a little too shy to go up to a stranger and share a few words, but I do often try and throw a commiserating, supportive smile to moms who are elbow-deep in a tantrum. I hope that as others are muttering the kid needs a good spanking (yes, I’ve really overheard that) my happy face says to the mom, “You’re doing just fine.”

It’s not all mommy wars out there. What random acts of kindness or compassion have you been a part of?

Cremieux Opens Second U.S. Store, Creates New Label for Dillard’s

Cremieux has embarked on a dual-pronged growth strategy as it works to increase sales.
The French brand, which got its start in Saint-Tropez in 1976, has opened its second store in the U.S. and has also created a new contemporary men’s brand for Dillard’s, its longtime American retail partner.
On Dec. 1, Cremieux opened an 800-square-foot boutique at the Royal Poinciana Plaza in Palm Beach, Fla. This joins the company’s SoHo store on Mercer Street that opened nearly four years ago.
A Florida store has long been on the wish list for Stephane Cremieux, chief executive officer of Cremieux and son of founder Daniel Cremieux. “Ever since the brand was founded, we wanted to open a store in Florida,” he said. “So when this opportunity came up, we took it.”
He said the recently renovated Royal Poinciana center is “a special place” with a curated assortment of luxury brands. “You can’t call it a mall. It’s like being in a summer house with fountains, lots of green and palm trees.” The center is home to 30 stores including Cynthia Rowley, Hermès, Magasin, Orlebar Brown and Serenella.
The design of the Cremieux store is very reminiscent of Saint-Tropez, he said, with photos of the French Riviera and

Prada’s Milan Store Robbed

MILAN — Prada’s store in Milan’s tony Via della Spiga was robbed overnight between Wednesday and Thursday.
According to Italian media reports, two unidentified thieves broke one of the store’s five windows to steal bags and accessories for an estimated worth of more than 100,000 euros.
Reached for a comment, the company confirmed the theft but didn’t provide further details on the economic damage, both in terms of structure and stolen goods.
According to media reports, Italian authorities have started investigations analyzing the images from the security cameras in the area, which show two people with faces covered by balaclavas and wearing gloves.
This is not the first time Milan’s luxury fashion district has been a target for thieves during this holiday season as reports indicate that two Tom Ford employees and a doorman working for both the American designer brand and for Céline have been accused of stealing branded merchandise.

U.K. Judge Says Antifur Lobby Can Protest Outside Canada Goose Store

PETA POWER: Attention all Regent Street shoppers: Get out your earmuffs, as PETA plans to protest loudly outside the new Canada Goose flagship in London.
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals said Sunday that a U.K. High Court judge quadrupled the number of protesters allowed within the outer exclusion zone detailed in an injunction obtained by Canada Goose when it opened the store last month.
The judge also ruled that activists should be permitted to use “loud hailers” between 2 and 8 p.m. The new provisions are effective beginning Tuesday, PETA said.
The High Court ruled that the injunction was obtained by Canada Goose without notice, and unreasonably restricted people’s right to freedom of assembly and expression.
PETA said its lawyer Andrew Locke had argued the injunction severely restricted activists’ ability to inform British shoppers, “95 percent of whom oppose the use of fur, about the company’s continued sale of fur from coyotes,” which PETA argues are treated with cruelty.
A Canada Goose spokesperson could not immediately be reached for comment Sunday.
The Regent Street victory for PETA comes just days after Michael Kors said it would stop using fur as of December 2018. It said the ban would also apply to Jimmy Choo, which Michael Kors Holdings

Olly Murs among shoppers evacuated from Oxford Street store

OHMYGOSSIP — Olly Murs was among the hundreds of shoppers who were evacuated from stores on London’s Oxford Street earlier today (24.11.17).
The 33-year-old singer-songwriter tweeted about his panic and
confusion after police stormed the area amid rumours of a potential
terrorist attack in the iconic shopping area.
But Olly – who was in Selfridges when armed officers arrived on the
scene – eventually revealed that it was a false alarm, while the
police confirmed they had not located “any trace” of any suspects,
evidence of gunshots or casualties.
The pop star wrote: “F*** everyone get out of @Selfridges now gun
shots!! I’m inside.
“Really not sure what’s happened! I’m in the back office… but people
screaming and running towards exits!
“Evacuating store now!!! F**k heart is pounding. (sic)”
As well as the arrival of armed police, the reports of an attack also
led to Bond Street Tube station being closed to prevent overcrowding.
Amid the confusion, London’s Metropolitan Police wrote on the
micro-blogging website: “If you are on #OxfordStreet go into a
building and stay inside until further direction. Avoid travelling to
the Oxford Street area. At this stage police have not located any
causalities. (sic)”
But the force later added: “Our response on #OxfordStreet has now been
stood down. If you sought shelter in a building please now leave, and
follow the direction of police officers on the ground if you need
assistance (sic)”
And after the situation had been clarified by the police, Olly
tweeted: “Being told no shots in Selfridges! Have no idea the whole
store went crazy!
“I’m safe and in hotel with loads of people! So many different stories
flying around just hope everyone is safe (sic)”

Of Course Hermès Had the Chicest Pop-Up Store in L.A.

When Hermès launches a pop-up shop, the expectation is that it will be inimitably chic. What might not be expected is that it draws inspiration from a retro laundromat. The interactive shop, dubbed Hermèsmatic, has been springing up in cities like New York, Washington D.C., and Nashville. The Westfield Century City mall in L.A. is the final stop on the tour.

The 1200-square-foot space is a dip-dye scarf concept shop, boasting shiny orange washing machines, walls lined with Hermès-branded boxes that resemble detergent, and videos demonstrating how to give your worn or vintage Hermès scarves new life by using a dip-dye washing technique. If one’s not feeling like getting in on the DIY, visitors can also purchase a silk scarf from the dip-dye collection. Hermèsmatic closes up shop Nov. 19, so if you’re in L.A. this weekend is your last chance to check it out.

Store Visits: Pasadena’s The BlokeIf you’ve never been to…

Store Visits: Pasadena’s The Bloke

If you’ve never been to Southern California, I will say this: Pasadena is an odd town. On the one hand, it has a sense of place that’s tough to find in a region where outside of central Los Angeles, things can feel like an uninterrupted exurb. It’s a real town, with big trees, third- and fourth-generation civic leaders and two really kick-ass parades. On the other, it has a deep conservative bent, and a casual So-Cal feel that’s more Cheesecake Factory than cutting edge.

It makes sense, then, that Pasadena would be the home of one of California’s odder simulacra: a recreation of London’s Burlington Arcade on an otherwise unassuming commercial street. Most of the shops are entirely unremarkable – there’s no Penhaligon’s perfumes, though there is a store that only sells houseplants.

Into this odd environment steps The Bloke, a new shop which specializes in the intersection between traditional English aesthetics and American Ivy style, with a dash of mod for good measure. Owner Jeffery Plansker is new to retail, having led a career as a director in advertising to this point, but the store has a personal feel. 

The square footage isn’t huge, but I found shirts and ties from Drake’s, sleepwear from Hilditch & Key and trousers from Tellason among the options on display. There were Sanders Playboy chukkas, a few Alden models and hats (I bought one) from the British stalwart Bates. There are also a few preppy classics, like some killer needlepoint belts and a rack of vintage club ties.

Among the cased accessories were some favorites of this blog, like the Junghans Max Bill wrist watch and Braun travel alarm clocks. There’s also a small browsing library of books on style (and lifestyle) from the owner’s personal collection, which included the braille edition of Playboy that our director Ben is reading above. There are also books and magazines for sale, including new copies of The Heritage Post, The Rake and Monocle and back issues of Japanese favorites like Vintage Life.

In an adjoining room is a pop-up space – it’s currently occupied by an installation of records, books and art from Groove Merchant in San Francisco. I brought home a couple of albums (Ray Barreto and the Fania All-Stars, if you’re keeping track), as well as a few back issues of the great music magazine Wax Poetics. The shop’s manager told me they’re getting new records every few weeks and that there will be further developments in the space every few months.

In can be hard to convince an Angeleno to cross town, but hopefully it won’t be too much to ask for the many Northeast Angelenos to stop by The Bloke next door in Pasadena. It’s a lovely shop with a breezy vibe and a air of sincere personality.

The Best Beauty Store Tips and Tricks

The best beauty store tips and tricks -- how to shop the store like a pro!Knowing the best beauty store tips and tricks can save you money, increase your chances of finding products you’ll really like, and even make shopping more fun. What are your favorite tricks for shopping for makeup, perfume, and other beauty products? Do you prefer buying online or in-store?

Before we get into our suggestions — and ask for yours, too — here’s one tip that, while it may be too obvious to include in our list below, could still spark an interesting discussion: Don’t assume that the adage “You get what you pay for” applies to all beauty products — that’s not always the case, as came up in our discussion a few years ago about overrated beauty products. Several years ago, I used to regularly buy Smashbox mascara at Sephora for $ 25–$ 30, and while I was happy with it, I now use a $ 7 mascara from Maybelline that I can just add to our grocery list when I need a new one. It works just as well, if not better, than the Smashbox one that costs four times more. It goes on really smoothly and significantly lengthens my lashes without any clumping. It lasts a long time, too (and I use the non-waterproof kind). I know this because … I’m too lazy/tired to take it off at night. (Oops.) So I know for certain that it still looks good almost 24 hours later.

Here are more beauty store tips and tricks:

1. Know the return policies before you buy. We’ve rounded up several:

  • Sephora: Return in-store purchases in “new or gently used” condition within 60 days with a receipt. Return online purchases by mail (60 days for a refund, 90 days for online store credit) or at a store with a receipt (60 days). Return criteria: “If you are not completely satisfied with a Sephora purchase or gift for any reason.” 
  • Ulta: Return in-store purchases (with “all original components” — I learned that the hard way) within 60 days with a receipt for a refund; after 60 days, you’ll get store credit. Return online purchases within 60 days for a refund; after 60 days, you’ll get a gift card or online gift card). Return criteria: “If you’re not completely satisfied with a product for any reason.” 
  • Nordstrom: Returns are handled on a typically generous “case-by-case basis” (beauty products don’t have their own rules) and the return policy doesn’t specify a time limit. You can return online purchases by mail or in-store, and customers have reported receiving refunds for unopened and opened beauty products.
  • CVS: Offers a 100% satisfaction guarantee on beauty products. You can return them, unopened or opened, with a receipt. Return criteria:If you’re dissatisfied for any reason.” 
  • Walgreens: “Returns for cosmetics or electronics are handled at the discretion of the store manager, usually in the form of a Walgreens gift card.”
  • Rite Aid: Offers the Rite Aid Money Back Beauty Guarantee. Return any opened or used beauty product with a receipt for a refund.
  • Target: “Most beauty items bought in stores or online can be returned, even if opened, within 90 days with your receipt, or up to 120 days if purchased with your Target REDcard™.

2. Be smart about trying on makeup at the store. Just think about how many people have used that tester. Even though you may always use those one-time applicators, the customer right before you might have applied the product directly to her face. A couple of years ago, The Chicago Tribune interviewed a dermatologist who has seen patients with “pinkeye, cold sores, bacterial infections, and boils” from using store product testers. She recommends applying makeup to your wrist or neck as opposed to your face. And in 2015, Good Morning America found some unpleasant results during lab tests of six stores’ testers. Bravo’s The Lookbook has several safety tips for trying makeup in the store (autoplay video), while Allure shares some great advice for trying on and choosing makeup at the store — specifically for concealer, blush, mascara, eyeliner, and other items. No matter how you end up using a tester, bringing your own baby wipes or wet wipes can help you remove each product before you move on to the next. (Virtual method: If you want to imagine how a certain product would look on you while staying 100% germ-free, check out the apps from Ulta and Sephora.)

3. If you shop at Sephora regularly (or even a couple of times a year), it’s worth it to sign up for the Sephora FLASH program. I just found out about this and wish I’d known before. Get a subscription to FLASH for just $ 10 and you’ll enjoy free, unlimited 2-day shipping for one year (no minimum purchase required). Otherwise, each order under $ 50 will cost you $ 5.95 in shipping. Just be aware that FLASH automatically renews at the end of the term. If you’re a VIB (Very Important Beauty Insider), which means you’ve joined the Beauty Insider rewards program and spend at least $ 350 during a calendar year, you can get Sephora FLASH for free.

4. Boost your chances of going home with a fragrance you’ll really like by knowing the right way to test perfume at the store. In an interview with PopSugar earlier this year, Stéphanie Bakouche of L’Artisan Parfumeur shared some really useful tips. Here’s some of her advice:

  • Spray perfume on a blotter from about 15 cm away, just once. Wait 30 seconds and then wave it in front of your nose rather than bring it right up to your face.
  • Don’t rub your wrists together after spraying a fragrance on yourself, even if that’s how everyone seems to try out perfume. It can break down the molecules and alter the scent of the product. (Who knew?) Instead, “touch one wrist against the other delicately,” says Bakouche.
  • In between different fragrances you’re sampling, sniff some coffee beans to neutralize the molecules in your nose from the last perfume and/or cleanse your palate by drinking water. Waiting a few minutes between each one also helps.

Readers, what are your favorite beauty store tips and tricks? Do you mostly buy makeup and other beauty products online or in brick-and-mortar stores? (Department stores, drugstores, beauty stores, grocery stores?) Have you signed up for any discount programs or other membership programs (e.g., Sephora FLASH) at beauty retailers? Are they worth it? Are you a VIB?

This grocery store cleared its shelves to make a powerful statement on diversity

Shoppers visiting Hamburg’s Edeka supermarket this week were greeted by empty shelves. There were no Greek olives or French cheeses, Italian oils or Spanish tomatoes. All that was left were products made in Germany.

Related article: Beer delivery drones have arrived in Iceland

The grocery chain wasn’t having issues with its supply chain, but using the items on its shelves—and the lack thereof—to make a very serious point about diversity, by emptying its store of any foreign products. Instead of delicious items from around the world, customers were greeted with signs reading “Without diversity, this shelf is rather boring” or “Our selection knows borders today,” Metro UK reports.

“Edeka stands for diversity, and we produce a wide range of food in our assortment, which is produced in the different regions of Germany,” an Edeka spokesman said. “But it is together with products from other countries that we create the unique diversity that our customers value.”

The issues of immigration and global diversity have been hot topics in Germany since 2015, when Chancellor Angela Merkel opened the country’s doors to refugees fleeing the war in Syria.

Related article: You can now do all your Walmart shopping on Google 

Germany is the world’s third largest importer of goods overall, bringing in $ 30.4 billion in vegetable products and $ 32.8 billion in foodstuffs, per MIT. The issues of immigration and global diversity have been hot topics in German politics of late, especially since Chancellor Angela Merkel’s decision to open the country’s doors to refugees fleeing war in Syria. According to a spokesman for Edeka, the campaign generated a great deal of buzz for the company, much of which was positive feedback from customers.

While there’s no doubt that Edeka lost profits during its political display, the supermarket chain is expected to continue clearing its shelves around the country. According to The Telegraph, Edeka will recreate the stunt in other outposts around Germany in the run up to Germany’s federal elections next month.

In the age of Amazon, an entrepreneur explains what will make us want to go to the store

Rachel Shechtman has retail in her blood. Her mother was in the gourmet food business and her grandparents and great grandparents owned a fabric store. In 2011, Shechtman launched her own rotating shop in Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood. STORY, her business, is entirely reinvented every three to eight weeks like a gallery, has a point of view like a magazine and sells things like a store. When we visited, the theme was Fresh STORY, a collaboration with Jet.com to promote fresh food. We spoke to Shechtman for our Making Sen$ e segment about how shifting consumer habits are forcing stores to either transform or perish. That piece airs Thursday on the PBS NewsHour. You can watch our related story about retail jobs here. Below Shechtman discusses why she thinks traditional stores are struggling. The conversation has been edited and condensed for clarity and length.

— Diane Lincoln Estes, Making Sen$ e producer


PAUL SOLMAN: So you’re a magazine or a store?

RACHEL SHECHTMAN: We’re both. It’s really retail as a media channel. If a magazine tells stories by writing articles and taking pictures, we tell stories through merchandise and events. And then, magazines have advertisers, and we have sponsors. For example, the editorial narrative for Fresh STORY is informed by and inspired by fresh ingredients from Jet.com and merchandise that’s connected to it. And then, we’ve done a ton of events, ranging from a conversation with Mario Batali to a cooking class for kids to a make your own bitters class. And I think that’s one of the things that’s probably one of the biggest surprises since launching STORY. There have been many happy accidents, and people yearning for a community in a physical world. There are couples who have met at STORY and started dating. There are people who’ve quit jobs, because they’ve come to events and they’ve been inspired and motivated. I think the more and more technology isolates us and automates things, the more we want human connection. To me, so much about the future of retail is community and bringing people together.

PAUL SOLMAN: Is retail dying or transforming?

“The more and more technology isolates us and automates things, the more we want human connection. To me, so much about the future of retail is community and bringing people together.”

RACHEL SHECHTMAN: I think it’s doing both. I think it’s evolving, and I think it’s an exciting time, because there’s more risk in not taking risk. But it’s hard to say that without acknowledging that a lot of people are going to lose a lot of money and a lot of people are going to lose jobs.

PAUL SOLMAN: What explains the demise of Sears, or J.C. Penney, or goodness knows how many other near-dead or dead retail chains? Is it that they just didn’t think about the way the world is changing and that they had to relate to customers in a different way?

READ MORE: Warby Parker’s CEO on how to thrive in retail as big-box stores are dying

RACHEL SHECHTMAN: I think that there’s two different things happening simultaneously. You’re basically asking a 200-year-old business model industry to do a titanic u-turn. That doesn’t happen overnight. Then you have this thing called Wall Street. So therein lies the innovator’s dilemma, right? You’re asking this entire industry to reinvent how it creates value. Yet, the system, Wall Street, that determines its value remains unchanged. Because they’re functioning based on comparables. In other words, they’re looking at comparable sales performance. So if you’re the CEO of one of these large stores and you have a decision to make, are you going to double down and risk something that could prove very fruitful in the future, but right now, it would impact your balance sheet?

PAUL SOLMAN: And you won’t have greater profits next quarter.

RACHEL SHECHTMAN: And you won’t have greater profits and your stock’s going to tank, or you’re going to have an activist investor who’s yelling at you. Or you’re like, “Okay, I’ve got to cut costs and do this because they’re looking at my comps.” So, no offense to my friends who work on Wall Street, and to be honest, obviously nothing’s going to change about that, but therein lies the problem. That’s one huge issue.

Now, take Wall Street out of it, which is hard to do, but you now look at these stores and decisions. I think you have two massive problems. You have training and compensation structures. A lot of the skills needed, or that I think certain brands would benefit from, are different skills than are in traditional retail. It’s building relationships and doing community events. That’s a different skill set.

PAUL SOLMAN: And you need to be paid for it, more than the typical person.

RACHEL SHECHTMAN: Yeah, but when I also talk about compensation I mean people aren’t incentivized to collaborate. So if marketing is becoming merchandising, and merchandising is becoming marketing, and you’re a buyer working in a merchandising group, you’re rewarded in bonus based on your sell performance. So then someone from marketing comes up to the buyer and says, “Oh my God, I have a great idea for this campaign. Can we spend two hours this afternoon talking about it?” So I’m the buyer, asking myself a question. Am I going to take two hours of my afternoon, brainstorming with a marketer, to help them with their idea, which is part of them doing their job well? And that’s two hours where I’m not analyzing my business to impact sell-through. So, collaboration and risk-taking, which are two things that I think inform innovation, aren’t compensated.

I can say with confidence that most large, traditional retailers, don’t think about it that way. I think now they might be starting to, but you have to do it all together. It’s not just a little bit here. You have to shake it up, and not just lay off people, but add in new blood, and be uncomfortable about it, because it might be people who have different backgrounds.

PAUL SOLMAN: How much sympathy do you have for people who run these big chain stores?

RACHEL SHECHTMAN: I have a tremendous amount of sympathy. I really think Wall Street is to blame for a lot of it. But it’s not just them. Wall Street’s not keeping people from walking into stores, Wall Street’s not responsible for store traffic being down, so don’t get me wrong.

PAUL SOLMAN: Wall Street’s not responsible for the internet. In fact, Wall Street bets on the internet. Look at Amazon’s stock price.

RACHEL SHECHTMAN: Exactly. So, I think that’s part of it. It’s not all of it, but it is a big part of it. But I think you have leadership that grew up in an era of retail, and we’re in uncharted waters. You’re not looking for the answer based on what worked 20 years ago. Markdowns, that’s not going to fix something. An exclusive launch might help you for a month or two. Nobody has the answer. It’s all connected. I said to one retail CEO, “I want you to give me an empty department store, I want you to give me 365 days, and a black ops team of talent, and let’s just go rogue and reinvent a department store.” It’s a lot easier to do that under one roof than to do that across 800 stores.

PAUL SOLMAN: And the response?

RACHEL SHECHTMAN: And the response was, “I love that idea and I would love to do it, but then we’re going to get on an earnings call, and we’re taking $ 50 million to invest in this, while we’re laying off 2,000 people.”

PAUL SOLMAN: How can you blame Wall Street, when Wall Street loves Amazon, which shows almost no profit at all, ever?

RACHEL SHECHTMAN: There’s a difference. Amazon’s creating the model. They’re inventing, they’re innovating, they’re creating. Retail, it’s the same business model that’s been around for 100, 200 years. I just want to be clear, this isn’t about playing the blame game. It’s not about, it’s just Wall Street. I don’t want to say that at all, I’m just saying, it’s not just the CEO. There’s not a simple answer, because it’s not a simple problem.

Let’s keep in mind, we’ve never been here before. It’s another thing when you’re creating a new path and doing something that’s never been done before. A lot of what Amazon does do is that. When you look at Macy’s, or Neiman Marcus, or Saks, or all of these brick-and-mortar brands, they’ve been around for a hundred years. They have real estate, they have employees, they have vendors. That’s not something that you can turn upside down overnight, it’s not that simple. I do think that there’s a huge opportunity to create impact at scale. And I think a lot of the answers are going to be about unlikely bedfellows. I think what that means for brands at scale, is finding talent and skill sets that are outside of coloring in the lines of sales per square foot.

PAUL SOLMAN: And so what you’re trying to do is to create an in-person experience, where sales, actually taking things out of the store, is only a part of the whole story.

RACHEL SHECHTMAN: Yeah. Also, keep in mind how much our behavior has changed because of technology. We’re used to getting new content every second on our devices. I think it takes a lot more to satiate our appetite. Also, I can go within a 10-block radius and find the same black pant in 20 different stores. Then, oh, by the way, I can get it online and receive it tomorrow and it’s half the price, so why do I need to go to the store?

PAUL SOLMAN: Right, that’s the question we all ask.

RACHEL SHECHTMAN: I think, for us, it’s about a narrative and storytelling, and how we can learn, and how we can connect, and how we can be entertained, and how we can consume in a new way.

LeBron James Developing Sneaker Store Comedy For HBO

HBO is currently in development on an untitled half-hour single-camera comedy about the sneaker culture phenomenon, from NBA star LeBron James and Maverick Carter’s Springhill Entertainment, reports Deadline.

Written by Shawn Wines (“High Maintenance”) and Lemon Andersen (“She’s Gotta Have It”), the untitled Sneaker Store Project follows two best friends and their wild employees at an up-and-coming sneaker shop outside L.A., where they take on the insane and obsessive world of sneaker culture.

Wines also executively produces with James and Carter; Andersen is co-executive producer.

The project hails from Warner Bros. TV and stems from SpringHill’s multi-year movie, TV and digital deal with Warner Bros.

SpringHill Entertainment’s portfolio includes Starz’s half-hour comedy “Survivor’s Remorse,” which premieres its fourth season on August 20, and game show “The Wall” on NBC.

Amy Schumer Buys $2,000 Mattress for Store Employee Who Let Her Use the Bathroom

If Amy Schumer asks to use your toilet, make sure you say yes.

The Snatched star was jogging around Chicago recently when she stopped into the local Six Corners Mattress Firm hoping for an emergency bathroom.

Sagine Lazarre, the store employee, happily pointed her towards the restroom, not realizing the desperate jogger was Schumer.

Grateful for the hospitality, Schumer walked up to Lazarre on her way out and asked which mattress was her favorite. She then bought the $ 2,000 mattress on the spot as a gesture of her appreciation.

The mattress came at a perfect time, as Lazarre and her daughter had just recently moved into a new apartment. It wasn’t until later that she realized the Inside Amy Schumer star was her generous benefactor. 

“It’s amazing, mind blowing. I’m still shocked,” Lazarre told Chicago’s WGN News on Wednesday.

“After she left, I Googled her name. The lady that was right there talking to me is Amy Schumer. It was amazing. Unbelievable.”

Schumer’s new film with Goldie Hawn, Snatched, hits theaters May 12.

Just one day at your job can be filled with utter chaos, and that means you definitely shouldn’t slack in the safety department. Accidents can happen without warning, so guarding yourself around workplace dangers, like potential fire hazards, is extremely important.

Its dual-compliance means you’ll be guarded at your place of work. The flame-resistant shirt is also soft and comfortable, as it features a breathable and durable knit.

It’s finally here! We’ve been telling the Big Guy for ages that we need to have a 0 Online Gift Certificate for the Working Person’s Store. Finally, he gets it. See, we worked it all out a while ago. Since it’s his company and he signs our paychecks, we decided to let him take credit for all the great ideas we have. We kind of “hint around the edges” until he has the idea we want him to have.Did we get credit for it? No. He has no idea we do this. But it makes him feel smart, so we’re okay with not getting the credit. So, when he gets what we’re hinting about and tells us what he wants, we let him live in his own little world. We just smile and say, “Great Idea!” So far, it’s been working great. But don’t let on that we said anything – it’s almost review time. It’ll be our little secret.This gift certificate opens up the door to a world of Carhartt Boots, Cowboy Boots, Designer Knives by brands like Spyderco, Lone Wolf and Benchmade, and even top-of-the-line Computer Case Luggage by Pelican Why not add a message when you buy a 0 Online Gift Certificate? You get up to 150 characters. That was our idea, too. When you buy your gift certificates, make sure to include your e-mail address, because that’s how we know where to send it.
