March 11, 2021

Our interview guest is Alan Payne, author of the newly released book Built to Fail, which chronicles Blockbuster’s ascent and descent within the span of just two decades. He was a part of the leadership group at Border Entertainment—a Blockbuster franchisee who just shuttered their last store in 2018. In news, we discuss Dick’s Sporting Goods releasing their 2021 outlook and themes that may prove important to them over the next 10 months. Additionally, we look ahead to retailers navigating the gradual removal of mask mandates in the U.S.
