The latest hikes don’t seem to be driven purely by the surging bean costs that have pressured other coffee sellers to raise prices, however, since Starbucks has said it already locked in its coffee contracts for the rest of this fiscal year and much of the next.

67. Starbucks Contribution to Scholarship Overstated -

NEW YORK (AP) – It turns out Starbucks isn't contributing any upfront scholarship money to an online college degree program it introduced this week.

72. Cowork Memphis Opens Workspace Venture -

Freelancers and other busy professionals who work remotely, outside of a traditional office setting, probably know the feeling.

86. The Costco Connection -

MEMPHIS IN COSTCO. Have you ever noticed that what appears to be of a reasonable size in Costco grows in volume and dimension with every mile between Costco and home?

Sure, you need a little lime in your gin and tonic, but there are 50 of them in that green net bag you just dragged into the kitchen and squeezed onto the counter next to those 27 avocados. That lobster dip you sampled was terrific, but that tub you brought home would keep all of Bar Harbor happy for the summer. The average Starbucks doesn’t stock as much Caffè Verona as you do now. Clinics are coming to you for antacid pills. If FedExForum runs out of toilet paper, come on over to your garage. That stuffed bear is so big it not only scares your grandbaby, the fact that you bought it scares the hell out of you. You didn’t need to eat that hot dog the size of a fireplace log, but you had to because that dog and a refillable drink for a buck fifty is one of the five best deals in America and the other four don’t count.

90. E-Strategy for Retailers -

A couple of weeks ago, my colleague Andy Cates penned an article regarding the impact of e-commerce on distribution and industrial real estate. If you think about it, regardless of the channel you use to buy, the item you purchase still has to get from seller to buyer in some manner. From a distribution perspective, as more people order online rather than shop in retail stores, more distribution is moving to direct-to-consumer and that will have an impact on distribution strategy. So what about the impact from the retail perspective? What is the future of the physical retail store?
