Advance Auto Parts’ Kristine Hankey earns Retailer Counter Professional of the Year award during the 2017 AAPEX Show in Las Vegas

 

First female recipient of Counter Professional of the  Year recognition in 20+ years honored during AAPEX awards reception

ROANOKE, Va., 2017-Nov-09 — /EPR Retail News/ — Advance  Auto Parts, Inc., a leading automotive aftermarket parts provider  in North America that serves both professional installer and do-it-yourself  customers, is  pleased to announce that Kristine Hankey, Commercial Parts Pro at Advance’s Dover,  Pennsylvania location, received the highly acclaimed Retailer Counter  Professional of the Year award during Babcox’s Night of Excellence Award Reception held during the 2017 AAPEX Show in Las Vegas. Hankey is the  first female recipient of the Counter Professional of the Year award in more  than 20 years, and the first Advance Auto Parts team member to receive the award  from Counterman in  the 32-year history of the awards program.

Babcox  publisher Scott Shriber honored Hankey for her exemplary work ethic, commitment to customer  service, pursuit of aftermarket industry knowledge and team participation, and her  efforts to support philanthropic causes in the local community.

“Kris Hankey’s passion for caring for her customers embodies  our mission at Advance. She knows her customers’ business inside and out and  her knowledge of the industry and ability to anticipate professional customers’  needs is extraordinary. Kris is a huge inspiration to the entire Advance team,”  said Tom Greco, President and Chief Executive Officer at Advance. “Kris’s  colleagues will tell you she is the ‘go to’ Parts Pro in the region. As a  result of Kris’s relentless focus on delivering for her customers, she is a  role model for everyone at Advance. We could not be more proud to have Kris so  deservedly recognized by her peers as the 2017 Counter Professional of the  Year.”

Hankey began her automotive career  more than 20 years ago, working on her own cars alongside her brothers while  growing up. In her time with Advance, which she joined in 2011, Kris has  maintained her skillset and knowledge by taking advantage of technical training  classes offered by Carquest Technical Institute and building relationships with  local OE dealerships, and she holds a current P2 ASE certification. Access to  quality training, recruiting more people to careers in the aftermarket and  career path development are key areas of focus for Advance Auto Parts, and one  reason the company is actively participating in the TechForce Foundation’s  FutureTech Success initiative.

2017 marks the 32nd year that the  Counter Professional of the Year awards have been bestowed by Counterman. As the first female in more than 20 years to receive the  honor, Hankey acknowledged that part of her role as a leader in the aftermarket  is to help break down barriers for females that work in a male dominated field.

“Kris  certainly has the respect of her fellow Team Members, who are quick to note her  success is evident in how she lives Advance’s mission everyday – Passion for  Customers … Passion for Yes!,” said Mike Creedon, Advance’s North Division President. “As  we work to establish a more diverse and inclusive aftermarket workforce, having  exceptional leaders like Kris gives our company a competitive advantage.”

Diebold Nixdorf to unveil latest innovations that extend beyond omnichannel offerings at Money20/20 conference in Las Vegas

Mobility, security and data underpin industry-leading commerce innovations

LAS VEGAS, 2017-Oct-20 — /EPR Retail News/ — Diebold Nixdorf (NYSE: DBD), the world leader in enabling connected commerce, is unveiling its latest experience-driven technologies that extend beyond omnichannel offerings to empower a more cohesive, end-to-end ecosystem for financial institutions and retailers. The company will showcase its latest innovations at this year’s Money20/20 conference, the largest global event focused on payments and financial services, in booth #1343 on Oct. 23-25 in Las Vegas.

Driven by mobile, influenced by data and embedded with security, Diebold Nixdorf’s latest conceptual platform, Fusion, serves as an endpoint that connects industry trends to create tailored consumer experiences across retail and banking. Fusion [pictured], a modular and dynamic retail and banking self-service touchpoint, is made up of three interchangeable user interfaces that can dock and un-dock to any three base options. This enables retailers and financial institutions to rapidly innovate by selecting their cash handling platform and consumer touchpoints independently. If needs change, only the impacted part of the machine needs to be replaced.

Designed to personalize and digitize the consumer journey, the company’s latest innovations transcend today’s traditional thinking of omnichannel and focus on tomorrow’s interplay between banks, retailers and other providers to deliver a connected commerce future through:

  • Mobile Apps for Always-On Consumers: In today’s mobile-first world, accessibility and convenience are key influencers. Diebold Nixdorf will showcase its latest mobile application software solution that enables financial institutions and retailers to better engage with consumers and other channels.
  • E-commerce Locker Concept: Further connecting the digital to physical consumer journey, one example of the many outputs from the Fusion concept is an e-commerce locker. Whether accessing the goods via near field communications (NFC), biometrics, cash or card, the locker approach seamlessly merges online, mobile and store through a ‘click-and-collect’ model that is quick and convenient for consumers, yet scalable and competitive with online retail giants. The introduction of this concept for an evolving market demonstrates Diebold Nixdorf’s continued innovation and thought leadership at the intersection of digital and physical channels.
  • Mobile-Based Facial Biometric Authentication at the ATM: With 47 percent of U.S. online adults (age 18+, online at least weekly) stating that biometric information is more convenient to use than remembering passwords1, adoption continues to rise and drive consumer convenience for simpler, secure authentication. Jointly with Samsung SDS America, Diebold Nixdorf will showcase Samsung SDS NexsignTM, the latest facial recognition authentication method via the ATM, and present on this topic at the FIDO Alliance Workshop: Identity is Fundamental: What you Need to Know About Identity & The Future of Money on Oct. 25.
  • Advanced Data Analytics: By integrating machine learning to harvest and analyze data in real-time via Diebold Nixdorf’s latest data analytics platform, retailers and financial institutions are able to more intuitively serve consumers by making data-driven decisions that improve uptime and serviceability of connected devices.

Additionally, AEVI, a Diebold Nixdorf subsidiary, will be showcasing at booth #601, its open ecosystem that combines value-added apps, payment services and a multi-vendor selection of payment devices, which brings acquirers closer to their merchants and merchants closer to their consumers.

“Diebold Nixdorf’s software-enabled services and technology continue to reshape the market by enabling banks and retailers to move from the omnichannel microcosm to a connected commerce ecosystem,” said Andy Mattes, president and chief executive officer, Diebold Nixdorf. “Our latest innovations are perfect examples of how Diebold Nixdorf continues to help banks and retailers reshape the consumer experience.”

About Diebold Nixdorf
Diebold Nixdorf, Incorporated is a world leader in enabling connected commerce for millions of consumers each day across the financial and retail industries. Its software-defined solutions bridge the physical and digital worlds of cash and consumer transactions conveniently, securely and efficiently. As an innovation partner for nearly all of the world’s top 100 financial institutions and a majority of the top 25 global retailers, Diebold Nixdorf delivers unparalleled services and technology that are essential to evolve in an ‘always on’ and changing consumer landscape.

Taco Bell adds Wedding Package to the menu at its Cantina Flagship in Las Vegas

Adds Wedding Ceremonies to the Menu and Hosts Contest for First Wedding at Taco Bell Cantina Flagship in Las Vegas

Irvine, Calif., 2017-Feb-16 — /EPR Retail News/ — Wedding bells are ringing Taco Bell-style today, as the company announced it is celebrating love by giving fans the opportunity to get married at its Las Vegas Cantina flagship restaurant. Cookie-cutter weddings are a thing of the past for millennials, who are putting new, personal spins on old traditions. For couples who love Taco Bell, and each other, tieing the knot at Taco Bell is a unique way to spend their big day.

“I love that we are taking Taco Bell all the way to wedding bells,” said Marisa Thalberg, Chief Marketing Officer at Taco Bell Corp. “From sauce packet proposals to couples catering their wedding parties and afterparties with Taco Bell, we have known for years that some of our most creative fans have been incorporating Taco Bell into this momentous occasion. Now, through our new flagship restaurant on the Las Vegas Strip, couples can come right in and order a wedding off of our menu. In a town known for pulling out all of the stops, we think this will be the most craveable matrimonial experience to ever hit Vegas.”

Beginning in summer 2017, visitors to Taco Bell’s Las Vegas Cantina flagship can tie the knot Taco Bell-style with a ceremony in the restaurant’s wedding chapel. While Taco Bell has always been a place for couples to share great memories, now they will create the best memory of all as they cement their relationship, and their love for Taco Bell. For now and forever.

Couples will be able to order the Wedding Package off the menu, which includes a Taco Bell garter, bow tie, Sauce Packet wedding bouquet, “Just Married” t-shirts, Taco Bell champagne flutes and a Cinnabon Delights Wedding Cake. And because it’s a Taco Bell Wedding, couples will get to enjoy a Taco 12 Pack for their first meal as newlyweds. The package will ring in at $600 and will include a full ceremony and officiant. Wedding coordination and officiant services are planned to be provided through a partnership between Taco Bell and Flora Pop, which specializes in unique pop-up weddings and elopements.

Before weddings open to the public in summer 2017, Taco Bell is inviting couples nationwide to enter Taco Bell’s Love and Tacos Contest and Happily Ever Crashers Sweepstakes to win an all-expense paid trip to Las Vegas to be the first couple to get married at the Las Vegas Cantina flagship restaurant. The lucky winning couple will receive travel and accommodations at Planet Hollywood, courtesy of Caesar’s, and the wedding of their dreams at Taco Bell’s flagship in the wedding capital of the world.

Taco Bell’s Love and Tacos Contest and Happily Ever Crashers Sweepstakes opens on February 14 and closes on February 26. Couples can enter to win by sharing a photo or 30-second video of themselves and sharing their Taco Bell love story on Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #LoveAndTacosContest. Once the contest is closed to entries, voting will begin for America’s favorite couple, and the lucky winners will be announced on March 16. In a uniquely-Taco Bell twist, fans that vote for their favorite couple will be entered to win the chance to be a guest at the winning couple’s wedding. Flights and spending money will be provided for the winner and a plus one.

For details on how to enter Taco Bell’s wedding contest visit tacobell.com/loveandtacos, and for more information on how to get married at Taco Bell visit tacobell.com/feed/how-to-get-married.

As the saying goes, “first comes love, then comes marriage.” Whether your first love was a Cheesy Gordita Crunch or your life partner, for fans who want to take their relationship to the next level a Taco Bell wedding in Las Vegas is now a legitimate option to “taco ‘bout.”

Diebold Nixdorf to launch its connected commerce solutions at Money20/20, Oct. 23-26, Las Vegas

LAS VEGAS, 2016-Oct-22 — /EPR Retail News/ — Diebold Nixdorf will be demonstrating its transformative connected commerce solutions at Money20/20, the largest global event focused on payments and financial services innovation, Oct. 23-26 in Las Vegas. In booth #2635, Diebold Nixdorf’s innovative solutions come together to provide a 360 degree view of the future of consumer transactions for both retailers and financial institutions.

Following a “day in the life” approach, booth visitors will go on a journey to the future of consumer transactions in both retail and financial institution settings. In the retail experience, the consumer journey starts at home and continues on to the grocery store, a clothing boutique and ends the journey at a license bureau:

  • Connected Shopper: a mobile-enabled shopping experience that starts at home utilizing voice services to build a shopping list and follows the consumer through the in-store shopping experience to checkout using the innovative TPiSHOP software platform and Mobile-Enabled Self-Checkout Concept that was unveiled at the National Retail Federation’s (NRF) BIG Show earlier this year.
  • Connected Retailer: a stop at the local clothing boutique where the consumer uses Diebold Nixdorf’sMyRetail Cloud POS solution enabling a tablet to be used as a point-of-sale (POS) device for small and medium-sized retailers to complete transactions.
  • Connected to Cash: ending the journey with a stop at the license bureau, the consumer uses a new Extreme ATM concept to get cash. At just under 10 inches (25 centimeters) wide, the Extreme ATM concept challenges traditional automated teller machine (ATM) design and fits perfectly in any environment. With integrated ProxToMe Bluetooth proximity technology, a consumer can use their Bluetooth-enabled mobile device to authenticate themselves, tap their mobile device at the ATM and complete their transaction.

In the financial experience, the journey begins and ends with a focus on delivering the ideal consumer experience:

  • Connected Insights: shows how collaboration and data analytics expertise can assist with solving challenges. Featuring a case study with Banco Popular, Diebold Nixdorf’s advanced analytics capabilities are enabling financial institutions to have a complete view of the self-service channel and improve ATM uptime by anticipating maintenance needs.
  • Connected Transactions: explores how increasing the mobility of branch staff enables the financial institution to strengthen relationships with critical growth segments, like small and medium-sized businesses.
  • Connected Services: “always on” is at the center of Diebold Nixdorf’s service philosophy. A unique, virtual reality adventure shows how we are bringing this philosophy to life.

“As a leader in connected commerce, we enable our customers to transform their businesses by changing how consumers shop and connect with their money now and in the future,” said Andy Mattes, chief executive officer, Diebold Nixdorf. “By leveraging solutions and talent from the combined Diebold andWincor Nixdorf organizations, we have the scale, strength and flexibility to help our customers stay ahead in this rapidly changing and “always on” world.”

Diebold Nixdorf will also be showcasing its unique omnichannel approach to promote and load card data into a digital wallet. By utilizing Diebold Nixdorf’s fast, convenient and secure card onboarding process, XPRESSION™ SafeLoad, issuers could benefit from significantly reduced card fraud during the critical card onboarding process. The innovative solution will be demonstrated in booth #3215.

Additionally, AEVI, a Diebold Nixdorf subsidiary, will be showcasing its secure, cashless payment solutions together with a global marketplace for high-quality, value-added apps and services for merchant banks and acquirers in booth #1221.

IKEA installs three Blink® electric vehicle charging stations at its Las Vegas, Nevada store

LAS VEGAS, NV, 2016-Jul-07 — /EPR Retail News/ — IKEA, the world’s leading home furnishings retailer, today announced it has installed three Blink® electric vehicle (EV) charging stations at its Las Vegas, Nevada store as part of a partnership with Car Charging Group, Inc. (OTCQB: CCGI), the owner of the Blink Network and Blink EV charging stations, and the largest provider of EV charging services with thousands of public EV charging stations in 36 states and two countries.

“Installing EV charging stations at IKEA Las Vegas reinforces our commitment to sustainability,” said store manager Amy Jensen. “Being a sustainable retailer includes a focus on the sustainable transport of people and empowering our customers to live sustainably too. So, accommodating the needs of EV drivers meets both goals.”

To charge an EV at IKEA Las Vegas, drivers can tap their Blink InCard (RFID card) to the reader below the screen, initiate the session directly from the Blink Mobile application, or use a guest code provided via the Blink Mobile app, www.BlinkCode.com, or Blink Customer Support (888-998-2546). Once the session is initiated, drivers can plug the charger into the EV, and then shop and eat at their leisure in the IKEA store while the vehicle is charging. EV drivers can become a Blink member, which is free and typically provides discounted charging fees at Blink EV charging stations. More information about how to use the Blink EV charging stations and becoming a Blink Member is available at blinknetwork.com.

IKEA, drawing from its Swedish heritage and respect of nature, believes it can do good business while minimizing impacts on the environment. Globally, IKEA evaluates locations regularly for conservation opportunities, integrates innovative materials into product design, works to maintain sustainable resources, and flat-packs goods for efficient distribution. Specific U.S. sustainable efforts include: recycling waste material; incorporating environmental measures into the actual buildings with energy-efficient HVAC and lighting systems, recycled construction materials, skylights in warehouse areas, and water-conserving restrooms; and operationally, eliminating plastic bags from the check-out process, and selling only LED bulbs. Consistent with the goal of being energy independent by 2020, IKEA has installed more than 700,000 solar panels on buildings across the world and owns approximately 300 wind turbines, including 104 in the U.S.

Located on 26 acres along the northern side of the 215 Beltway at S. Durango Drive, near Sunset Road in Clark County, the 351,000-square-foot IKEA Las Vegas opened May 18, 2016, and employs approximately 300 coworkers. In addition to 10,000 exclusively designed items, this IKEA store presents 43 inspirational room-settings, three model home interiors, a supervised children’s play area, and a 450-seat restaurant serving Swedish specialties such as meatballs with lingonberries and salmon plates, as well as American dishes. Other family-friendly features include a ‘Children’s IKEA’ area in the Showroom, baby care rooms, play areas throughout the store, and preferred parking. Also, IKEA installed Nevada’s largest single-use commercial rooftop solar array on the store. The store also is the second U.S. IKEA store to open with only LED lighting for sale, and for use inside and outside the building.

Since its 1943 founding in Sweden, IKEA has offered home furnishings of good design and function at affordable prices. There are currently more than 380 IKEA stores in 48 countries, including 42 in the U.S. IKEA has been ranked among “Best Companies to Work For” and, as further investment in its coworkers, has raised its own minimum wage twice in two years. IKEA incorporates sustainability into day-to-day business and supports initiatives that benefit children and the environment.

Durango Drive, near Sunset Road in Clark County, the 351,000-square-foot IKEA Las Vegas opened May 18, 2016, and employs approximately 300 coworkers. In addition to 10,000 exclusively designed items, this IKEA store presents 43 inspirational room-settings, three model home interiors, a supervised children’s play area, and a 450-seat restaurant serving Swedish specialties such as meatballs with lingonberries and salmon plates, as well as American dishes. Other family-friendly features include a ‘Children’s IKEA’ area in the Showroom, baby care rooms, play areas throughout the store, and preferred parking. Also, IKEA installed Nevada’s largest single-use commercial rooftop solar array on the store. The store also is the second U.S. IKEA store to open with only LED lighting for sale, and for use inside and outside the building.

Since its 1943 founding in Sweden, IKEA has offered home furnishings of good design and function at affordable prices. There are currently more than 380 IKEA stores in 48 countries, including 42 in the U.S. IKEA has been ranked among “Best Companies to Work For” and, as further investment in its coworkers, has raised its own minimum wage twice in two years. IKEA incorporates sustainability into day-to-day business and supports initiatives that benefit children and the environment.
