    [$$] As Shipping Costs Soar, Supply Chains Get a Makeover

    Retailers and manufacturers are taking stock of their transportation costs and exploring alternatives as a capacity crunch in freight is driving up prices and causing shipping delays. A variety of companies, including food producer Hormel Foods Corp. and retailer Dollar General Corp., have reconfigured their supply chains, including building out their own truck fleets, reducing the frequency of pickups and deliveries, and shopping around for better rates. Freight rates have been climbing in recent months, making it harder and more costly for shippers to book transportation at a time of year when demand is typically lighter.

    One Dollar Is the Best Price Point Ever

    Cal Turner Jr., retired chief executive officer of Dollar General Corp. and this week's guest on Masters in Business, likes to explain how his father came up with the concept of dollar pricing. Department stores in Louisville, Kentucky, and Nashville, Tennessee, would run monthly advertisements for "dollar days,” one day each month when merchandise cost a dollar. Cal Sr. figured the retailers had to be making money on the discount days because they were clearly spending a lot on advertising and they kept on doing it.

    U.S. dollar-store shares marked down but specialty discounters thrive

    The shares of so-called dollar stores have suffered as U.S. shoppers have started spending more at bargain retailers with focused concepts and big discount chains. Once thought to be insulated from the retail industry's challenges, the dollar stores, which got the name because they try to price items for $1 or less, such as Dollar General Corp (DG.N), Dollar Tree Inc (DLTR.O) and Big Lots Inc (BIG.N) derive much of their sales from household staples. Appealing to trend-watchers and bargain hunters has helped Ollie's and Five Below stand out while other discounters face intensifying competition from new entrants such as German chains Aldi and Lidl, analysts and investors said.

    Retail Roundup: How to Win at Mobile Sales, Lord & Taylor Flagship Closing

    The world of e-commerce has evolved rapidly, and with half of all online searches now taking place on mobile phones, retailers have to be more sophisticated in how they market to customers, says Inbal Lavi, chief executive of performance-marketing company Webpals Group, which delivers high-value customers to online businesses. Lavi tells Barron's that her firm uses advanced statistical and prediction models to try to parse characteristics of customers, so to identify what shoppers find interesting. Such information is used to determine "the product, the creation of the ad that will work best for you, even the time of day you see it, so that companies can target the most relevant products for a specific user and the use the most relevant triggers that lead to an acquisition." "Acquisition," in the fast-changing world of retail, means completion of a purchase.
