Woodinville Whiskey Company (WWC) becomes part of Moët Hennessy’s world-renowned wine and spirits portfolio

Paris, 2017-Jul-15 — /EPR Retail News/ — Moët Hennessy and Woodinville Whiskey Company (WWC) announced today (JULY 13, 2017) that Moët Hennessy has acquired WWC, which has become part of Moët Hennessy’s world-renowned wine and spirits portfolio. Financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

WWC was founded in 2010 by lifelong friends Orlin Sorensen and Brett Carlile, who will continue to oversee WWC’s operations.  WWC has quickly established itself, in the world of craft whiskeys, today focused on the Washington state market only.

Mr. Christophe Navarre, President and CEO of Moët Hennessy said, “We are convinced that Woodinville fits very well within the Moët Hennessy portfolio. Orlin and Brett have done a great job to establish Woodinville Whiskey as an iconic brand in Washington state with significant potential for expanded distribution through our US and international networks. While we are no strangers to whiskey, with our Glenmorangie and Ardbeg single malts, we have much to learn from Orlin and Brett about American distilling and look forward to this important new partnership.”

Mr. Orlin Sorensen added, “We are very proud about what we have accomplished since founding Woodinville Whiskey Company just a few years ago. As we considered the many strategic opportunities before us, it was clear that being part of the Moët Hennessy portfolio and distribution network will allow us to reach our goals much more quickly. Brett and I are thrilled to continue leading the business and to be part of the accelerated growth we expect to achieve as part of Moët Hennessy, and its parent LVMH, the world’s leading luxury goods company.”

Since its founding, WWC has been based in the namesake town of Woodinville, Washington, a robust beverage alcohol hub of more than 100 wineries, microbreweries, distilleries, and cideries with more than 300,000 annual visitors. The new state of the art distillery and tasting room were completed in 2014. The company’s barrel warehouses are based in Quincy, Washington, where local resources are plentiful, and climatic conditions facilitate the aging process.

WWC’s Rye and Bourbon Whiskies are matured for at least five years.  Having relied primarily on sales of its Micro Barreled Bourbon and Rye, the company was able to launch its 5-year-old Straight Bourbon in 2015, which was immediately crowned “Whiskey of the Year” for 2016 by the American Distilling Institute. Its 5-year-old Straight Rye followed in 2016, and that was named as Best Rye Whiskey for 2017, also by the American Distilling Institute.

Shopify merchants to list and sell their products on eBay directly from their Shopify account


New channel to bring added product choice to eBay customers.

San Jose, California, 2017-Jul-15 — /EPR Retail News/ — eBay Inc. (NASDAQ: EBAY) and Shopify Inc. (“Shopify”) (NYSE: SHOP, TSX: SHOP), the leading cloud­-based, multi­channel commerce platform, today (Jul 13, 2017) announced that Shopify merchants will soon be able to list and sell their products on eBay directly from their Shopify account.

With the new integration, Shopify merchants will have the opportunity to surface their brand and products to a massive new audience of more than 169 million active eBay buyers. eBay shoppers will benefit from added selection and choice from potentially hundreds of thousands of Shopify merchants.

This integration will also enable Shopify merchants to immediately sync inventory information such as product title and description, item specifics, price and quantity from Shopify to eBay. Customer orders will also be imported to Shopify and allow merchants to fulfill orders from both platforms in one location, while messages from buyers on eBay will also be visible within Shopify so their sellers won’t miss any important communications.

“eBay is focused on delivering the best choice and selection of inventory to buyers across the globe,” said Bob Kupbens, VP of Global Trust & Seller Experience, eBay. “This new integration with Shopify will bring even more great products to eBay buyers, while offering Shopify merchants the ability to seamlessly drive their business and brand at scale by tapping into our vibrant marketplace.”

This integration continues to make selling online easier for Shopify merchants to conveniently manage their product catalog across multiple channels like online, in-person, marketplaces, social and messaging all in one dashboard.

The eBay channel joins the fast-growing list of other Shopify sales channels, including Amazon, BuzzFeed, Facebook, Pinterest, Messenger and retail via Shopify’s Point of Sale, among others. These integrations are possible because of Shopify’s Sales Channel Platform, a collection of APIs that can be used to add commerce to any site, app, or platform. Sales channels are an important part of a Shopify merchant’s business strategy, and more than 60% of merchants sell in two or more channels.

“Shopify is the industry leader when it comes to multi-channel commerce, and we look to partner with the best and biggest platforms to bring new sales opportunities to our merchants,” said Satish Kanwar, VP of Product, Shopify. “The eBay channel has the potential to introduce our merchants to eBay’s millions of buyers, exposing merchants to a massive number of new sales opportunities.”

The eBay sales channel is expected to be available in Fall 2017 for Shopify merchants selling in USD in the United States.

To help spark inspiration for your own outdoor space, I curated a list of my top entertaining tips.”

  1. Maximize Comfort– No matter how you use the space, you want to be comfortable. So snuggle up or sink into the Grand Harbor Palm Canyon Modular Sofa. Add decorative pillows such as this Pineapple Pillow for extra comfort and – voila! – you now have an on-trend, fun pop of color. We all know it’s been all about the pineapple this year!
  2. The More, The Merrier– If you’re all about the party, make sure you can comfortably accommodate a large group with a chic outdoor dining table and chair set such as the Grand Harbor Logandale Dining Table & Chair Bundle. For extra seating, add a rustic-inspired lounge chair or a classic picnic bench.
  3. Add a Touch of the Indoors – Soften the space and make it barefoot friendly by adding an outdoor rug. Even if it’s outdoors, a rug really warms up a space. Have fun with it and choose a bold pattern like this United Weavers of America Atrium Spellbound Rug.
  4. Fire Up the Grill– Add the best smells of the season with a new grill like the Smoke Hollow Combo Gas & Charcoal Grill…mmmmm!
  5. Make It Fun– Outdoor games are the best way to get everyone involved, like with the Sportcraft Volleyball & Badminton Combo Set. Keep the fun going throughout the night with backyard sleepovers using a tent like the Northwest Territory Sierra Dome Tent. Camping anyone?
  6. Light Up the Night– Nothing cozies up a space like lighting so add a touch of soft ambiance with these Edison Bulb String Lights. You can also make a statement with these Smart Solar Crackled Glass Color Changing Gazing Ball. How fun?!

Mattel®, Toys”R”Us® and WWE to support Make-A-Wish with new John Cena action figure available exclusively at Toys”R”Us

PHOENIX, 2017-Jul-15 — /EPR Retail News/ — Three national corporate sponsors of Make-A-Wish® are coming together to support the organization that grants life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. Mattel®, Toys”R”Us® and WWE are partnering to launch a new John Cena action figure – available exclusively at Toys”R”Us stores nationwide beginning Tuesday, August 15. The presale for the limited-edition collectible begins today, July 11, online at

For every purchase of the action figure, Mattel will donate a portion of the proceeds to Make-A-Wish to support the wish granting efforts of the organization.

The figure features John Cena looking match-ready in red, white and blue, stars-and-stripes ring gear. The patriotic color scheme is the result of input from Alex, a Make-A-Wish kid from Los Angeles, Calif. Alex worked with the teams at Mattel and WWE to put his personal design on the new action figure. Alex is an example of the hundreds of wish kids who have wished to meet John Cena and have been forever changed as a result. Having granted more than 500 wishes to date, Cena is the most popular celebrity wish granter in Make-A-Wish history.

“Having the opportunity to meet Alex and witness first-hand his vision behind the action figure was an incredible experience,” said WWE Superstar John Cena. “There is nothing more humbling than a child who could ask for anything in the world asking to meet me, and I will continue to grant wishes as long as I am asked.”

“At Make-A-Wish, we have heard over and over again how wishes have the power to bring families and communities closer together for the better,” said David Williams, Make-A-Wish America president and CEO. “This is a case where wishes have inspired three of our sponsors to work collaboratively to bring the life-affirming nature of a wish to more wish kids, and we could not be more excited.”

In conjunction with the pre-sale of the action figure, now through Monday, July 31, Toys”R”Us will host a social media fundraising initiative benefitting Make-A-Wish America. For every retweet or share of the retailer’s #GivingIsAwesome posts, the company will donate $1 to the organization, up to $25,000.

Another fundraising opportunity will come in late August when five John Cena autographed action figures will be auctioned off to the public on eBay with 100% of revenue generated through the auction benefitting Make-A-Wish.

Mattel, Toys”R”Us and WWE each have a longstanding history with Make-A-Wish as corporate sponsors on a local and national level. Mattel, a national sponsor since 2007, has donated thousands of toys for wish activities and developed co-branded toy items with some of its most popular brands like Hot Wheels® and Barbie®. Toys”R”Us regularly donates toys and gift cards for shopping sprees in addition to providing annual grants from the Toys”R”Us Children’s Fund – leading to more than $3.5 million in donations in nearly 20 years. In addition to providing monetary support, WWE has granted thousands of wishes to meet Superstars as well as donated event tickets since the early 1980s.

CBRE: availability rate for warehouses and distribution centers in the U.S. declined slightly in second quarter

Decline in Available Space Comes Amid Strong Demand, Temporary Slowdown of Construction Deliveries

Los Angeles, 2017-Jul-15 — /EPR Retail News/ — The average availability rate for warehouses and distribution centers in the U.S. declined slightly in the second quarter, aided by the healthy economy and fewer than expected construction completions, according to a new report from CBRE.

U.S. industrial availability declined by 10 basis points (bps) in the second quarter to 7.8 percent, its lowest level since the first quarter of 2001. The decline was the market’s 27th in the past 28 quarters.

The slight tightening of the market in the second quarter can be attributed to strong demand and a temporary slowdown in new supply.  The U.S. industrial market has benefited from general strength in the economy, notably gains in job growth, port traffic, increased e-commerce activity and key manufacturing indices.

Additionally, developers completed less industrial space in the second quarter (40.2 million sq. ft.) than was expected (46.5 million sq. ft.), according to CBRE.

“This bounceback in demand from a sluggish first quarter isn’t surprising, given the solid economic growth that we’ve seen this year,” said Jeff Havsy, CBRE Chief Economist in the Americas. “New construction deliveries are expected to pick up in the second half of the year since the pipeline of new projects is active.”

CBRE defines availability as the full amount of space available for lease, including vacant space and currently occupied space being marketed for occupation by other users.

In the second quarter, 42 of the U.S. markets that CBRE tracks registered declines in their industrial availability rates. Fourteen registered increases. Six were unchanged.

Markets posting the largest declines in availability in the second quarter from a year earlier include Wilmington, Del., (down 370 bps); Dayton, Ohio, (down 320 bps); Jacksonville (down 230 bps), Cincinnati (down 220 bps); Sacramento (down 210 bps); and Boston (down 200 bps).

Markets posting higher availability rates from a year ago include Austin (up 280 bps); Kansas City (up 130 bps); Fort Worth (up 120 bps); San Jose (up 100 bps); and Houston (up 90 bps).

About CBRE Group, Inc.

Wendy’s introduces Bacon Queso Burger, Bacon Queso Chicken Sandwich and Bacon Queso Fries for a limited time

Wendy’s introduces Bacon Queso Burger, Bacon Queso Chicken Sandwich and Bacon Queso Fries for a limited time


Wendy’s New Bacon Queso Burger, Chicken Sandwich and Fries are Inspired BY the Queso Obsessed, FOR the Queso Obsessed

DUBLIN, Ohio, 2017-Jul-15 — /EPR Retail News/ — Wendy’s® knows how passionate people have become about queso. In fact, this passion often turns into obsession. Good news for those folks, Wendy’s is also obsessed!  To celebrate this obsession, Wendy’s created three new limited-time Queso products – the Bacon Queso Burger, Bacon Queso Chicken Sandwich and Bacon Queso Fries. Inspired by the queso obsessed, for the queso obsessed.

“Simply put, people are going to go crazy for our new queso products because they are just that good,” said Wendy’s Chief Concept & Marketing Officer, Kurt Kane. “Nobody does fresh beef, chicken sandwiches and topped fries like Wendy’s, so we’ve taken three things our customers already love and made them even better by adding queso.”

For a limited time, Wendy’s will offer two Bacon Queso sandwich options – either with a quarter pound of Wendy’s fresh, never-frozen beef or a Homestyle chicken breast – both sandwiched between a red jalapeno bun. Topped with fire roasted salsa, fresh red onions, thick-cut Applewood Smoked Bacon and all-natural shredded cheddar cheese, the main event is hands-down the poblano queso cheese sauce – the final touch that brings a flavor experience that only Wendy’s can deliver.

And because one can never truly cure that queso obsession, Wendy’s has also developed the perfect, cheesy side item – Bacon Queso Fries. A flavorful fusion of poblano Queso cheese sauce and cheddar cheese melted over Wendy’s natural-cut sea salt fries, the new Bacon Queso Fries are topped with thick-cut Applewood Smoked Bacon, creating a crave-worthy companion.

The Bacon Queso Burger and the Chicken Sandwich have a suggested retail price of $4.99 and $5.39, respectively. The Bacon Queso fries have a suggested price of $2.49.

1Fresh beef available in the contiguous U.S., Canada, and Alaska.
