    Shopping for Side Tables – The New York Times

    Side tables are among the smallest pieces of furniture, but they make a big difference in the way a room looks. “They’re like the bags and shoes of your outfit,” said Poonam Khanna, an architect who founded the Brooklyn-based studio Unionworks. “They’re accessories that are very important.” Just as knockout shoes can enhance the look of simple clothing, interesting side tables can add visual appeal to an otherwise understated interior, whether you choose clean-lined ones made from beautiful materials or tables with sculptural forms or unexpected colors. Of course, it’s not only about how they look. Side tables also

    Retailers leave Mountain View Charleston Plaza shopping center en masse

    MOUNTAIN VIEW — A shopping center serving Mountain View and Palo Alto has lost three of its key anchor tenants in the past few months, but officials say fears it will be redeveloped into housing are unfounded. Mountain View Mayor Lucas Ramirez says the owner isn’t looking to change anything about the Charleston Plaza, a shopping center nestled on the Mountain View-Palo Alto border along Highway 101 that once housed a Bed Bath & Beyond, REI and Best Buy. All three of those retailers have left in the past year. Bed Bath & Beyond was the first big-box retailer to

    Target CEO predicts inflation will limit driving, shopping

    American consumers are likely to dial back on trips to stores and restaurants this year as soaring inflation makes shopping more expensive, according to Target CEO Brian Cornell. Cornell addressed the retail landscape during a Sunday appearance at a National Retail Federation event. He noted the rising price of gasoline and increased costs of everyday goods that should prompt Americans to seek cheaper alternatives. “Some of the historical ways consumers react to inflation will play out again in 2022,” Cornell said, according to Bloomberg. “You’ll drive fewer miles, you’ll consolidate the number of times and locations where you shop,”

    Retail Sales Fell in December, a Slowdown in a Robust Holiday Shopping Season

    Retail sales fell 1.9 percent in December, the Commerce Department reported on Friday, reflecting a slowdown during an otherwise robust holiday shopping season that started earlier in the year for many consumers. It was the first drop after four straight months of sales increases, though the gain in November slowed from October because of the lengthened holiday shopping season brought on by fears of product shortages and price increases. Total sales for October through December were up 17.1 percent from a year earlier, according to the report. December sales rose 16.9 percent from 2020. Beth Ann Bovino, chief U.S. economist

    Crypto-focused shopping site rolls out ‘buy now, pay later’ feature

    “Buy now, pay later” platforms have become increasingly popular among consumers who want a little flexibility when shopping online — and now, one project is bringing this concept to crypto. Uquid’s Pay in 3 feature does what it says on the tin: spreading crypto payments on everyday purchases across three instalments.  This means shoppers have 90 days to settle their balances in full — and they won’t be charged interest. The DeFi-focused company says this approach offers a number of advantages. Not only can this ensure payments are timed with fluctuations in a cryptocurrency’s value, but consumers can open up

    Do smart supermarkets herald the end of shopping as we know it? | Retail industry

    Welcome to the supermarkets of the future. They may look and feel like the supermarkets we are all used to – and stock the same bread, butter and bananas – but these shops are now fitted out with more than £1m of the latest technology that their bosses promise will put an end to our biggest frustration (queueing) and our most persistent crime (shoplifting). Jill French, a legal secretary in her 30s, wearing a sharp navy suit and matching beret, has just left a Tesco Express on London’s Holborn Viaduct empty-handed. It’s coming up to 6.30pm on a Thursday
