ST. LOUIS, 2017-Jun-07 — /EPR Retail News/ — This summer, Build-A-Bear Workshop (NYSE:BBW) fans can find the brand’s one-of-a-kind experience in a variety of new and exciting locations, from select AMC Theatres and Carnival Cruise Line ships to Gaylord Hotels and Beaches Resorts.

Build-A-Bear Workshop Pop-Up Shops at Select AMC Theatres
Build-A-Bear Workshop seasonal pop-up shops opened in late March at select AMC Theatres locations in Florida, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. The in-theater shops offer an abridged version of the traditional Build-A-Bear Workshop store experience. Movie-goers can make their own furry friends—including characters from some of the summer’s hottest movies—and watch them come to life at the mini stuffer before choosing from a small assortment of clothing, accessories, scents and sounds, each sold separately. A selection of pre-stuffed plush are also available for patrons in a hurry to catch the previews. Ten additional pop-up shops opened June 1 at AMC locations in Texas, Kansas and Missouri.

Carnival Cruise Line Presents Build-A-Bear Workshop At Sea
The Carnival Cruise Line Build-A-Bear Workshop At Sea experience, which launched in summer 2016, is now available aboard all 25 Carnival ships. Building upon Carnival’s position as the family cruise leader hosting nearly 800,000 kids a year, Build-A-Bear Workshop At Sea provides children of all ages an opportunity to make their own cuddly bear that can be customized with a variety of outfits and accessories, from tutus and high-top sneakers to, appropriately enough, vacation wear like bathing suits and sunglasses. The selection also includes a signature Carnival bear, Carnival tees and backpacks, and an exclusive Make-Your-Own Dr. Seuss’ Cat in the Hat.

Build-A-Bear at Beaches Resorts
Build-A-Bear Workshop and Beaches Resorts have partnered to elevate the ultimate family-friendly vacation offered at all three of the company’s luxurious resorts. The first Build-A-Bear Workshop Beaches experience opened in December 2016 at Beaches Turks and Caicos, and two additional locations will open this month in Jamaica at Beaches Negril and Beaches Ocho Rios. Vacationers can choose from a wide selection of Build-A-Bear Workshop furry friends, outfits and accessories—including bathing suits and sunglasses as well as special Beaches backpacks, hoodies, tees and more.

Build-A-Bear at Gaylord Hotels
As part of the magical winter wonderland experience at Gaylord Hotels during the 2016 holiday season, Build-A-Bear Workshop offered visitors the opportunity to make their own furry friend. On Memorial Day weekend 2017, Build-A-Bear Workshop returned to Gaylord Palms Resort in Orlando, Fla.; Gaylord Opryland Resort in Nashville, Tenn.; and Gaylord Texan Resort in Grapevine, Texas, offering even more furry-friend fun through Labor Day 2017 as part of the resorts’ annual SummerFest event. Several signature teddy bears, licensed characters and more are available and completely customizable with the perfect summer outfits and accessories.

“Whether it’s catching a movie at AMC Theatres, taking a Carnival Cruise Line cruise, or hanging out at Beaches Resorts and Gaylord Hotels, summer is a great time for families to travel and make memories together,” said Sharon Price John, president and CEO, Build-A-Bear Workshop. “As we approach our 20th birthday, we are offering new and expanded experiences from Build-A-Bear Workshop in even more places.

Japanese Restaurant and Jazz venue, Yoshi’s selects NCR Corporation to transform their restaurant operations

Proven NCR mobile POS technology drives consumer convenience and business efficiency

DULUTH, Ga., 2017-Jun-07 — /EPR Retail News/ — When the Japanese Restaurant and Jazz venue, Yoshi’s, was looking for a way to increase their speed of service and customer satisfaction in their massive 17,000-square- foot location in the most efficient way, the management team turned to NCR Corporation (NYSE: NCR), a global leader in omni-channel solutions, for help with their restaurant operations transformation.

Located in the heart of the Bay Area, Yoshi’s is very comfortable, incorporating new state-of-the-art technology. Leveraging NCR’s reliable point-of-sale (POS) platform, they were able to install a mobile POS solution that enabled servers to take orders and payment directly at the table with direct transmission of the order information to the kitchen and bar printers. Once Yoshi’s deployed NCR Aloha Mobile –- an extension of Aloha POS on mobile devices that can run on either consumer-grade or built-for purpose technology — everything changed.  Yoshi’s made the operational changes needed to optimize the kitchen work load, dramatically speed customer service, reshape their dining room and empower their servers to provide top-of-the-line service using NCR Aloha Mobile running on 26 NCR Orderman7 mobile devices.

“The handheld technology more than doubles the amount of tables that our servers can handle, making their jobs easier and more efficient than ever before,” said Hal Campos, the general manager for Yoshi’s. “The speed and reliability of NCR’s technology creates a unique and smooth customer experience, allowing servers to be more attentive to each table.”

To compete in today’s restaurant industry, companies are constantly looking for ways to eliminate server transit time while providing a unique experience for customers. By fine tuning ordering systems, restaurants can increase customer engagement while increasing the efficiency of their staff.

“As the leader in hospitality technology, we want to make everyday easier for restaurant operators with the best possible software solutions for their business to help increase revenues and bottom line results,” said Don Zimmerman, general manager at NCR Hospitality. “NCR’s handheld devices are builtfor purpose, and improve operational performance. We have the capability to help our customers quickly incorporate this one-of-a-kind technology into their businesses, enhancing the customer experience while meeting business development goals.”

Yoshi’s began in 1972 as a small sushi bar and over the last 40 years has built itself into one of the world’s most respected jazz venues. Today, Yoshi’s is an award-winning 310-seat live performance venue with a state-of-the-art sound system and design, in the heart of Oakland’s Jack London Square and is known for its spectacular service and great entertainment.

The products subject to recall bear establishment number “EST. 7914” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to food service locations in Indiana, Kentucky, Ohio and Tennessee.

The problem was discovered on June 5, 2017 when plant management notified FSIS in-plant inspection personnel of two positives for E. coli O157:H7 test results.

E. coli O157:H7 is a potentially deadly bacterium that can cause dehydration, bloody diarrhea and abdominal cramps 2–8 days (3–4 days, on average) after exposure the organism. While most people recover within a week, some develop a type of kidney failure called hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS). This condition can occur among persons of any age but is most common in children under 5-years old and older adults. It is marked by easy bruising, pallor, and decreased urine output. Persons who experience these symptoms should seek emergency medical care immediately.

Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.

FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify recalling firms notify their customers of the recall and that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers. When available, the retail distribution list(s) will be posted on the FSIS website at www.fsis.usda.gov/recalls.

FSIS advises all consumers to safely prepare their raw meat products, including fresh and frozen, and only consume ground beef that has been cooked to a temperature of 160° F. The only way to confirm that the meat is cooked to a temperature high enough to kill harmful bacteria is to use a food thermometer that measures internal temperature, http://1.usa.gov/1cDxcDQ.

Media and consumers with questions regarding the recall can contact Rob Webber, at (1-800-600-8510).

Consumers with food safety questions can “Ask Karen,” the FSIS virtual representative available 24 hours a day at AskKaren.gov or via smartphone at m.askkaren.gov. The toll-free USDA Meat and Poultry Hotline 1-888-MPHotline (1-888-674-6854) is available in English and Spanish and can be reached from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. (Eastern Time) Monday through Friday. Recorded food safety messages are available 24 hours a day. The online Electronic Consumer Complaint Monitoring System can be accessed 24 hours a day at: http://www.fsis.usda.gov/reportproblem.

PREPARING PRODUCT FOR SAFE CONSUMPTION
USDA Meat and Poultry Hotline
1-888-MPHOTLINE or visit
www.fsis.usda.govWash hands with warm, soapy water for at least 20 seconds before and after handling raw meat and poultry. Wash cutting boards, dishes and utensils with hot, soapy water. Immediately clean spills.

Keep raw meat, fish and poultry away from other food that will not be cooked. Use separate cutting boards for raw meat, poultry and egg products and cooked foods.

Color is NOT a reliable indicator that meat has been cooked to a temperature high enough to kill harmful bacteria.

The only way to be sure the meat or poultry is cooked to a high enough temperature to kill harmful bacteria is to use a thermometer to measure the internal temperature.

  • Fish: 145°F
  • Beef, pork, lamb chops/steaks/roasts: 145°F with a three minute rest time
  • Ground meat: 160°F
  • Poultry: 165°F
  • Hot dogs: 165°F or steaming hot

Refrigerate raw meat and poultry within two hours after purchase or one hour if temperatures exceed 90º F. Refrigerate cooked meat and poultry within two hours after cooking.

“Fill Your Cart with Color” is a new brand platform for eBay

“Fill Your Cart with Color” is a new brand platform for eBay

 

Celebrating individuality by harnessing the power of personalization and unmatched selection, enabling shoppers to get their version of perfect.

San Jose, California, 2017-Jun-07 — /EPR Retail News/ — Today’s (Jun 5, 2017) shoppers are yearning to be themselves in the sea of sameness that is traditional retail. A new study conducted by eBay found that 9 in 10 Americans (93%) want the things they buy to reflect the “real them,”1 and eBay is echoing this growing sentiment with the launch of “Fill Your Cart With Color.” The rallying cry, developed with eBay’s new global creative agency 72andSunny Los Angeles, reflects the essence of the eBay brand – celebrating individuality and self-expression – and highlights all the ways eBay enables anyone to shop vibrantly, break away from the “beige” conformity of traditional commerce, and live colorfully.

“Fill Your Cart with Color” is a new brand platform for eBay, kicking off with a new TV spot followed by an approach that will live across TV, cinema, OOH, display and social. It integrates the introduction of an enhanced and more personalized eBay shopping experience, which now includes a reimagined homepage that’s responsive to each user’s interests. Leveraging Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning technology, shoppers receive tailored recommendations across all categories with each new site visit, and an inventory mix that’s truly unique to them.

“Individuality and self-expression are at the heart of the eBay brand, delivered through an extraordinary breadth of inventory from around the world,” said Karl Isaac, Vice President of Global Brand at eBay. “As consumers pursue their passions and reject conformity, both in commerce and culture, ‘Fill Your Cart With Color’ celebrates the things that truly make people unique, and connects to what people love about eBay, from new and unique items to personalized experiences. Now, more than ever, eBay empowers people to find exactly what they love and express who they are.”

To create eBay’s new brand platform, 72andSunny Los Angeles commissioned three directors to capture what makes eBay different. The directors, whose resumes include feature films, music videos and creative work for top global brands, are Bridget Savage Cole, Josh Nussbaum and Director X. These esteemed creators each shot their component of the spot separately, in Chicago, Los Angeles and New York, respectively.

”eBay is built on the diversity of the buyers and sellers that make up our marketplace – they create a rich and dynamic environment for commerce that is unmatched in possibilities,” said Suzy Deering, Chief Marketing Officer for eBay North America. “Our priority as a business is to marry our streamlined, personalized shopping experience with our unparalleled selection of inventory to meet the evolving needs of millions of shoppers – uniquely enabling them to shop the products that they love.”

The new creative also captures real, vibrant people – from a celebrated artist, to a sneaker aficionado, to one of the country’s most sought-after fly fishing guides – sharing their real passions, personality, and perspectives. Each highlights selections from eBay’s cross-category merchandise and just a few of the ways shoppers can use eBay to find what’s perfect for them.

“Real people curate their lives with a spectrum of things, and it’s impossible to script that, it has to be captured in the moment,” said 72andSunny Executive Creative Director and Partner Matt Murphy. “We took a completely different production approach, collaborating with multiple directors to show real people, their passions, interests and hobbies, and how they express themselves with what they shop for.”

With more than 1.1 billion listings and 80% of all items sold brand new, eBay enables any shopper to find the perfect item and fill their cart with color.

IRVING, Texas, 2017-Jun-07 — /EPR Retail News/ — The Michaels Companies, Inc. (NASDAQ: MIK) today (2017-06-06) announced financial results for the first quarter ended April 29, 2017.

“I am encouraged with the improving trend in customer transactions this quarter, especially given the headwinds we faced as we anniversaried last year’s coloring trend,” said Chuck Rubin, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “We continue to make progress on our 2017 and long term operational and strategic priorities, and we look forward to sharing more about our long-term goals at our upcoming analyst day.”

First Quarter Highlights

  • Net sales were $1.16 billion, flat with net sales in the first quarter of fiscal 2016. Sales from the operation of 12 additional stores (net of closures) was offset by a decline in comparable store sales. Comparable store sales decreased 1.2% driven by a decrease in average ticket. During the quarter, the Company opened three new Michaels stores and closed one Michaels store and five Aaron Brothers stores. At the end of the first quarter, the Company operated 1,225 Michaels stores, 104 Aaron Brothers stores, and 35 Pat Catan’s stores.
  • Gross profit increased 0.6% to $467.6 million, from $464.8 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2016. As a percentage of net sales, gross profit increased to 40.4% compared to 40.1% in the first quarter of fiscal 2016. The increase, as a percentage of net sales, was due to the comparison against $3.6 million of net non-recurring, inventory-related purchase accounting adjustments related to the acquisition of Lamrite West in the first quarter of fiscal 2016 and higher merchandise margin. These benefits were offset by higher inventory shrinkage and occupancy cost deleverage.
  • Selling, general and administrative expense, including store pre-opening costs, (“SG&A”) increased 2.8% to $328.4 million, or 28.3% of net sales, from $319.4 million, or 27.6% of net sales, in the first quarter of fiscal 2016. The increase in SG&A was primarily due to expenses associated with the operation of 12 additional stores (net of closures), marketing investments and higher health care expenses. The increase was partially offset by a comparison against $4.1 million of integration expenses recorded in the first quarter of fiscal 2016 related to the acquisition of Lamrite West.
  • Operating income decreased 4.2% to $139.3 million, or 12.0% of net sales, from $145.3 million, or 12.5% of net sales, in the first quarter of fiscal 2016. Excluding net non-recurring, inventory-related purchase accounting adjustments and integration expenses associated with the acquisition of Lamrite West, adjusted operating income for the first quarter of fiscal 2016 was $153.0 million.
  • Interest expense decreased $1.8 million to $30.4 million, from $32.2 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2016 due to interest rate savings from the refinancing of the revolving credit facility in the second quarter of fiscal 2016 and the refinancing of the term loan credit facility in the third quarter of fiscal 2016.
  • The effective tax rate was 33.7%, compared to 37.2% in the first quarter of fiscal 2016. The lower effective tax rate is primarily due to benefits realized from our direct sourcing initiatives and the recognition of $0.9 million of excess tax benefits associated with the adoption of a new accounting standard related to share-based compensation.
  • Net income increased 2.0% to $72.2 million, from $70.8 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2016. Excluding net non-recurring, inventory-related purchase accounting adjustments and integration expenses associated with the acquisition of Lamrite West, adjusted net income for the first quarter of fiscal 2016 was $75.5 million.
  • Diluted earnings per share increased 11.8% to $0.38, from $0.34 in the first quarter of fiscal 2016. Excluding net non-recurring, inventory-related purchase accounting adjustments and integration expenses associated with the acquisition of Lamrite West, adjusted diluted earnings per share in the first quarter of fiscal 2016 was $0.36.
  • The Company ended the first quarter of fiscal 2017 with $197.9 million in cash, $2.8 billion in debt and $727.6 million in availability under its asset-based revolving credit facility.
  • Inventory at the end of the first quarter increased 4.2% to $1,102.3 million, compared to $1,057.6 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2016. The increase in inventory was primarily due to additional inventory associated with the operation of 12 additional stores (net of closures). Average Michaels inventory on a per store basis, inclusive of distribution centers, in transit and inventory for the Company’s e-commerce site, increased 2.0% to $803,000, compared to $787,000 at the end of the first quarter of fiscal 2016.
  • Capital expenditures for the quarter were $15.7 million, compared to $14.7 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2016.
  • As previously announced, the Company purchased 4.8 million shares, or $99.3 million, of the Company’s common stock during the quarter, utilizing the remaining availability under the Company’s share repurchase authorization.

Second Quarter and Fiscal Year 2017 Outlook:

“Our operational expectations for the remainder of 2017 have not changed. We continue to believe that top-line trends will improve in the second half as we anniversary the 2016 coloring headwind, disruption created from store layout changes made in the third quarter last year, and the U.S. elections. However, the value of the Canadian dollar has weakened since we established our prior outlook, and we have adjusted our fiscal 2017 full year guidance to reflect our expectation this currency trend continues,” concluded Mr. Rubin.

For fiscal 2017, a 53-week year, the Company expects:

  • Total net sales growth of 2.2% to 3.7%, or 2.5% to 4.0% on a constant currency basis, including the impact of the 53rd week, which is planned to be approximately $80 million;
  • Comparable store sales to be down 0.2% to up 1.3%, or flat to up 1.5% on a constant currency basis;

  • Operating income to be in the range of $723 million to $756 million;

  • The effective tax rate to be between 34% and 35%;
  • Diluted earnings per common share to be between $2.03 and $2.15, based on diluted weighted average common shares of approximately 190 million; and
  • Capital expenditures to be between $125 million and $135 million.

For the second quarter of fiscal 2017, the Company expects:

  • Comparable store sales to decrease 0.5% to 1.5%, or be approximately flat to down 1.0% on a constant currency basis;
  • To open four new Michaels stores, relocate two Michaels stores and close four Aaron Brothers stores;
  • Operating income to be between $75 million and $80 million;
  • Interest expense to be approximately $30 million;
  • The effective tax rate to be between 34% and 35%; and

Non-GAAP Information

This press release includes non-GAAP measures including Adjusted EBITDA; operating income excluding integration costs and non-recurring, inventory-related purchase accounting entries related to the acquisition of Lamrite West (“Adjusted operating income”); and net income excluding integration costs, non-recurring, inventory-related purchase accounting entries related to the acquisition of Lamrite West, (“Adjusted net income”); and earnings per share excluding integration costs, non-recurring, inventory-related purchase accounting entries related to the acquisition of Lamrite West (“Adjusted earnings per share”). The Company has reconciled these non-GAAP financial measures with the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures in a table accompanying this release. The Company believes that these non-GAAP financial measures not only provide its management with comparable financial data for internal financial analysis but also provide meaningful supplemental information to investors. Specifically, these non-GAAP financial measures allow investors to better understand the performance of the Company’s business and facilitate a meaningful evaluation of its quarterly and fiscal 2017 diluted earnings per common share and actual results on a comparable basis with its quarterly and fiscal 2016 results.

In evaluating these non-GAAP financial measures, investors should be aware that in the future the Company may incur expenses or be involved in transactions that are the same as or similar to some of the adjustments in this presentation. The Company’s presentation of non-GAAP financial measures should not be construed to imply that its future results will be unaffected by any such adjustments. The Company has provided this information as a means to evaluate the results of its ongoing operations. Other companies in the Company’s industry may calculate these items differently than it does. Each of these measures is not a measure of performance under GAAP and should not be considered as a substitute for the most directly comparable financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. Non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as analytical tools, and investors should not consider them in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of the Company’s results as reported under GAAP.

Forward-Looking Statements

This news release includes forward-looking statements which reflect management’s current views and estimates regarding the Company’s industry, business strategy, goals and expectations concerning its market position, future operations, margins, profitability, capital expenditures, share repurchases, liquidity and capital resources, and other financial and operating information.

The Company cannot assure investors that future developments affecting the Company will be those that it has anticipated. Actual results may differ materially from these expectations due to risks relating to the effect of economic uncertainty, substantial changes to fiscal and tax policies; our reliance on foreign suppliers; regulatory changes; the seasonality of our business; changes in customer demand; damage to the reputation of the Michaels brand or our private and exclusive brands; unexpected or unfavorable consumer responses to our promotional or merchandising programs; our failure to adequately maintain security and prevent unauthorized access to electronic and other confidential information; increased competition including internet-based competition from other retailers; and other risks and uncertainties including those identified under the heading “Risk Factors” in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”), which is available at www.sec.gov, and other filings that the Company may make with the SEC in the future. If one or more of these risks or uncertainties materialize, or if any of the Company’s assumptions prove incorrect, the Company’s actual results may vary in material respects from those projected in these forward-looking statements.

Factors or events that could cause the Company’s actual results to differ may emerge from time to time, and it is not possible for the Company to predict all of them.

JCPenney launches dorm shops in stores and online

JCPenney launches dorm shops in stores and online

 

Many stores are located within 5 miles of most major colleges, offering convenient in-store pick up of dorm furnishings, including new compact refrigerators and laptops

PLANO, Texas, 2017-Jun-07 — /EPR Retail News/ — The high school class of 2017 is off to college this fall and JCPenney [NYSE: JCP] is the dorm destination of their collegiate dreams. JCPenney is launching dorm shops in 500 stores this week, featuring a curated selection of bedding, bath and décor products designed to entice recent high school graduates and their parents who are shopping early in the season for dorm room essentials. New this year, the 400-square-foot shops will now offer mini refrigerators, microwaves, portable air conditioning units, expanded storage solutions, and later this month, Packard Bell laptops. With an extended selection of dorm products available at JCPenney.com, customers have the option of shipping online orders to a JCPenney store located close to campus to make moving day easy and effortless.

“It is estimated that parents and students will spend more than $6 billion* on dorm furnishings this summer. JCPenney is focused on driving performance and capturing a significant share of this business by expanding the breadth of our dorm offerings to include new categories, such as microwaves and compact refrigerators, conveniently available in stores and online,” said John Tighe, executive vice president and chief merchant for JCPenney. “Our seasonal dorm shops boast high-quality bedding, bath and kitchen products from our expertly-designed and quality-sourced private brands, including JCPenney Home, Home Expressions and Cooks. Customers come to us specifically for these trusted brands, allowing JCPenney to increase gross margin potential, while providing exceptional value for budget-minded shoppers.”

Ship dorm furnishings to any JCPenney store
JCPenney has brick-and-mortar stores throughout the country, with many locations just a few miles away from the country’s largest colleges and universities. This convenient store footprint allows parents to purchase dorm room essentials at JCPenney.com and have the order shipped directly to the nearest JCPenney store, reducing the need to personally pack and transport these items over long distances. If a student forgets their sheets or coffee maker at home, JCPenney just expanded its convenient same-day store pickup solution to all stores, so parents can purchase the sheets at JCPenney.com and their college student can pick up the order just a few hours later at their local JCPenney store.

“JCPenney has a sophisticated omnichannel network with a variety of convenient shipping options, which can be especially important as students head off to college. We have the benefit of leveraging our store fleet to deliver JCPenney.com orders quickly, efficiently and at a low cost to the customer, representing an opportunity to drive additional sales.
