Retail Focus 8/30/21 – Cuisinart’s Strategy Surrounding the Holidays; Family Dollar Finds Combo Store Success

September 1, 2021

Our interview guest is Mary Rodgers, Cuisinart’s director of marketing communications. She joins us to discuss, among other things, Cuisinart’s strategy surrounding their unique holiday sales cadence, back-to-school, and their approach to new product lines. In news we look at “dollar store” earnings, but moreover, how Family Dollar is finally seeing success through the long-awaited synergies with Dollar Tree (and how Dollar General may take a dip into health & wellness). Finally, we look ahead to Mattress Firm, as their CEO notes the path out of bankruptcy for the retailer.
