    Stores in Development in Bad Locations

    Recently visited Detroit store that I thought would be a turd but seems to be doing extremely well. WFM is shifting downscale a bit but even so they are still superior to all the major grocery stores I shop and blow Kroger away as far as I'm concerned. With drive to keep prices more competitive I think they are addressing one of biggest potential constraints and will begin to pull in more price conscious customers and continue to maintain industry leading comps and all the fixed costs leverage that entails

    Why is FOSL going up ?

    I did some channel checks over the holidays and noticed watch counters were very busy in major dept stores, especially Nordstroms and Macys which carry extensive line of Fossil brands...both in fact seemed busier than Fossil's own retail stores in the same malls. It appears watches are coming back in fashion and category in general having a strong year with Fossil being one of the biggest beneficiaries...bought one of the Skagen watches myself as Christmas gift.

  • I wrote a negative review about disappointing quality of expensive Godiva chocolates I bought at BKS...and recommended Costco's as superior for the money. I checked back a couple of days later to see if it was posted but site indicated no reviews had yet been submitted on this product...makes me wonder if they screen out bad reviews?

    Please see earlier post about one of the Romneys favorite places to shop...guess they are more open minded than some of their supporters.

    Noticed one by me in Ann Arbor, MI has been much slower lately with reduced staffing. Worst though is that employees appear to have become more lethargic and less friendly. Sadly it has come to feel more like the service from a McDonalds vice the old which more closely reminded me of a Starbucks. Far different from engaged, customer focused and highly motivated staff I've come to expect. May be isolated case but disappointing all the same as many other visits have always left me quite impressed.
