Kroger partners with Chase Pay to offer mobile payments for online and in-lane purchases

Redesigning grocery payment experience enables seamless transactions while delivering cost savings for the future

CINCINNATI, 2017-Dec-13 — /EPR Retail News/ — The Kroger Co. is teaming up with Chase Pay—the digital engagement wallet from JPMorgan Chase & Co.— to offer mobile payments starting with select retail markets and e-commerce programs in 2018.

Kroger’s payment solutions are a part of the company’s Restock Kroger Plan, the strategy to create shareholder value by redefining how America eats. One of the key strategic drivers is to expand partnerships to create customer value, which includes Kroger forming alliances to accelerate digital and e-commerce platforms.

“Technology is transforming our customers’ experiences and greatly influencing how we are reimagining the store of the future,” said Chris Hjelm, Kroger’s Chief Information Officer. “Mobile wallets enable a more seamless shopping experience for our customers and at the same time, can help us drive cost out of our business.”

“This is a significant win for our customers who now will be able to save time and money using Chase Pay at one of the top retailers in the country,” said Jennifer Roberts, Head of Digital Products at Chase. “Kroger is one of the places our customers shop the most, and it’s great to deliver more value to both a key partner and our customers.”

Through the partnership, Chase’s 65 million customers will have an opportunity to use Chase Pay at Kroger for online and in-lane purchases.

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. These factors become especially important as new college students realize they need more towels, forget their pillow at home or want to purchase a portable a/c unit for their dorm room,” added Tighe.

Dorm done right
College-bound students are often eager to show their school pride by stocking up on their favorite team apparel and room décor from over 500 colleges available through the Sports Fan Shop at JCPenney.com. In select stores, shoppers will find an assortment of collegiate gear and accessories, such as a Texas A&M University blanket, a University of Arizona logo pillow or a West Virginia University laundry hamper. To help students set up the perfect dorm room, JCPenney has created the ultimate Dorm Essentials Checklist. The checklist has all the dorm necessities listed in one place including XL twin sheets, dorm-appropriate cookware, mattress toppers, bath towels, clothes hangers, desk lamps, alarm clocks and more.

The Company has compiled a list of stores located within just a few miles of major college campuses to demonstrate the convenience of having online orders shipped to a local JCPenney store. For additional JCPenney store locations, please visit JCPenney.com and select ‘find a store.’

BRC Chief Executive: The slowdown in overall non-food sales was mirrored online in May as annual growth fell to its lowest on record

London, 2017-Jun-06 — /EPR Retail News/ —

BRC – KPMG ONLINE RETAIL SALES MONITOR MAY 2017

Covering the four weeks 30 April – 27 May 2017

  • Online sales of Non-Food products in the UK grew 4.3% in May compared to 13.7% rise a year earlier. This is the lowest growth since December 2012.
  • Over the 3 months to May, Online sales of Non-Food products in the UK grew 7.0% year-on-year, the lowest in the BRC series started in December 2012.
  • In May 2017, Online sales represented 22.1% of total Non-Food sales in the UK, against 21.2% in May 2016. On a 3-month basis, penetration rate was 21.9%.
  • Over the 3 months to May, Online sales added 1.3 percentage points to the year-on-year growth of Total Non-Food sales. In contrast, In-Store sales made a negative 3-month contribution of 1.2 percentage points. In May, Online sales contributed 0.9 percentage points to Non-Food growth.
  • Over the 3 months to May, In-Store sales fell, posting declines of 1.8% on a total basis and 2.3% on a like-for-like basis. For the month of May, In-Store sales declined by 4.4%, a striking decline, the sharpest decline since the BRC series started in December 2012.

Helen Dickinson OBE, Chief Executive | British Retail Consortium said:

“The slowdown in overall non-food sales was mirrored online in May as annual growth fell to its lowest on record. Though sales in all categories but one saw growth, this was subdued as consumers held back on non-essential purchases.

“Where there is willingness to spend on non-food items, this is largely concentrated on value-lines. The clothing and beauty categories in particular were boosted by some late season promotions, which looks promising for those retailers who will be launching their mid-season sales this month.

“For the second consecutive month, the increase in the online penetration rate has remained below one percentage point. Retailers will be increasingly looking to innovate and optimise their online channels to convert a greater share of online browsing into sales.”

Paul Martin, UK Head of Retail | KPMG said:
“Whilst non-food online sales continue to deliver growth, the significant news is that this month’s year-on-year growth is the lowest recorded since our online retail sales monitor began back in December 2012. Broadly speaking, most categories noted a rise, but growth had clearly been muted due to shoppers clawing back on non-food purchases.

“Bucking the general trend, health and beauty products continue to be the rising star, with holiday season, sunshine and hay fever likely to be fuelling this growth. Elsewhere, the more seasonal weather in the month is likely to be behind fashion sales performing better.

“With such meagre growth in online sales in May, it is vital online retailers master the art of customer-centricity and personalisation. Ensuring the right products are available at the right time, and that surplus stock is not sold at significantly reduced prices, is becoming ever more important.  Success will come from an ability to target the online shoppers who spend more and return less.”

Seattle, 2017-Feb-06 — /EPR Retail News/ — For those counting down the days of winter in anticipation of warmer weather, Teavana offers an unexpected, balanced green tea with hints of spring.

Back for its third season, Teavana Winterberry Green Tea is full of fruity flavors, including strawberries, apples and sliced citrus. It’s sprinkled throughout with floral notes of marigold petal, rose hip and hibiscus that soften and sweeten the tea. It is available for a limited time at more than 350 Teavana® specialty retail stores in the U.S. and Canada and online at Teavana.com.

“Teavana Winterberry Green Tea is radiant, approachable and reminds us that spring is right around the corner,” said Jason Adams, Teavana brand manager.

Winterberry Green Tea is a blend of two core Teavana teas – Strawberry Grapefruit Xue Long Green Tea and Strawberry Lemonade Herbal Tea. Xue Long (pronounced Sh-way Long) is one of the highest-quality Chinese Green teas also known as Snow Dragon. It is crafted by hand and only harvested four days each year in Fuding, China. Teavana blends Xue Long with the bright flavors of pink grapefruit, sweet strawberries, apples and lemongrass for a tea with a bold taste. Strawberry Lemonade Herbal Tea is a refreshing lemon infusion with sweet strawberry undertones.

“Teavana has been expertly blending the world’s finest teas and botanicals since 1997 and this tea is a great example of our craft,” Adams added. “Teavana Winterberry pairs two unique blends, the classic green tea and adds a twist of sweetness with the herbal lemonade tea, which takes the flavor to a whole new level.”

Winterberry Tea-Filled Tin: Enjoy six ounces of loose leaf tea in this airtight, light-blocking limited-edition tin.

BRC’s Helen Dickinson on retail sales in December: This was very much an online Christmas

  • Online sales of Non-Food products in the UK grew 15.1% in December versus a year earlier, when they had risen by 7.0% over the previous year. This is the best performance since June. December’s online sales performance was ahead of its 3-month and 12-month averages of 12.3% and 12.4%, respectively.
  • In December 2015, Online sales represented 19.7% of total Non-Food sales, against 17.3% in December 2014, meaning almost 1 in 5 pounds was spent online. This is the second highest penetration of 2015, indicative of the popularity of online shopping in the run-up to Christmas and during the early January sales.
  • Toys & Baby Equipment was the second fastest growing category and achieved its best performance since June. This was followed closely by Furniture and Homewares, the latter grew at its fastest rate since the inception of this monitor in December 2012.
  • Online sales contributed 3.0 percentage points to the year-on-year growth of Non-Food total sales in December, the highest on record, while stores made a negative contribution.

LONDON, 2016-1-12 — /EPR Retail News/ — Helen Dickinson, Chief Executive, British Retail Consortium, said: “This was very much an online Christmas with this channel playing a vital role in driving retail sales in December. Growth was up 15.1 per cent, ahead of its 3-month and 12-month averages of 12.3 and 12.4 per cent respectively, and December’s online penetration rate was the second highest of 2015, at 19.7 per cent, up from 17.3 per cent the same time last year. The proportion of online spend was up across all categories we measure with household appliances, footwear and furniture leading the way. Over the three months to December, online contributed 2.5 percentage points to UK non-food growth overall, confirming this channel as the key driver of growth. In fact, store sales were in reverse.

“Click & Collect continued to be instrumental, providing convenience for consumers and equipping smaller format stores with extended product ranges during the busy Christmas period. There were also some knock-on benefits, such as encouraging greater footfall into stores in turn inspiring impulse buys.”

David McCorquodale, Head of Retail, KPMG, said: “With 190% of average rainfall in December, many consumers chose to login rather than walk in over the festive period. There was marked increase in online shopping this year with that channel producing its highest contribution percentage to non-food sales growth compared to a decline in store growth.

“Whilst the weather was one reason for this, another is a significant shift in consumer behaviours with online channel more convenient and logistics and fulfilment networks becoming increasingly slick. The online phenomenon is clearly here to stay and will continue to challenge the role of the store. 2016 will no doubt bring further innovation in this arena as retailers strive to deliver a seamless omni-channel experience.”

Pandora Jewellery Line Launches Online Mag

The Copenhagen-based jeweller behind the Pandora bracelets range is set to venture into online publishing to help it to stay in contact with its millions of customers worldwide.

The first issue of the online magazine will launch on 20th June 2011 and will be sent to the 1.6 million members of their website-based Pandora Club.

The magazine will feature behind the scenes insights into the brand, fashion shoots, style tips and the stories behind customer’s purchases of Pandora jewellery and bracelets. Published six times per year, the magazine will initially launch in an international format which the company eventually hopes to be able to adapt with local content such as special events and promotions.

The launch of the magazine marks an important step in the evolution of the company. Since the UK launch in 2006 the company’s product range, which now includes rings and watches, has been selling at a phenomenal rate. The company has managed supply and demand successfully, due in large part to its integrated designs, manufactures and distribution.

Founded in 1982, Pandora jewellery is today sold in more than 55 countries on six continents through over 10,000 points of sale, including more than 450 Pandora branded concept stores as well as online from stores such as thejewelhut.co.uk.

Whilst the financial projections were made successfully, what could not have been seen is the way in which consumers have taken the brand to their hearts. Pandora bracelets have become very different from a standard jewellery product; it has taken on a life of its own and has become a part an important constituent of the lives of its wearers. This symbiotic relationship has created many repeat customers who have made their charm bead collection an integral part of their lives.

Mikkel Berg, executive marketing director, quoted in a recent Marketing Week article, said: “This magazine rewards our customers’ loyalty and gives new opportunities for them to share their thoughts with each other and the company.”

To ensure that you get your copy sign up online on the Pandora website at pandora.net. For more information on Pandora jewellery, visit popular UK jewellery site the Jewel Hut at http://www.thejewelhut.co.uk.

Jewellery and gold are being sold by the UK public (15%) in order to raise some capital to pay for festivities. 35% of people are worried about the interest rates of credit cards (33% of people use them for presents) and short-term loans (3% take them out at Christmas).
