55. 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?

66. Mission at Vito’s To Go: Quality Food Quickly -

The interior of Vito’s To Go resembles a submarine in its claustrophobic crowding of narrow kitchen, prep table, drive-through accommodation, bread-making area, storage and office. Six years in the planning, the restaurant, which features coffee, breakfast, sandwiches, salads and pizzas only on a drive-through, delivery or call-in/pick-up basis, is the creation of Chris Conner, whose extensive experience in construction, engineering and the local restaurant business goes back to the mid-1980s.

80. Mayor’s Homeless Strategy Meets Skepticism -

Memphis Mayor A C Wharton Jr. is a regular at the Starbucks at Union Avenue and McLean Boulevard.
Last week, as criticism began for his new police initiative to deal with the homeless, Wharton stopped for a coffee on his way to a town hall meeting and encountered another regular at the next table.
“There’s a homeless gentleman who I see there every morning. He will not accept handouts,” Wharton told reporters this week. “He’s just the kindest gentleman you will find anywhere. I don’t offer to buy him anything. I sit down at the table next to him – he doesn’t want to be disturbed.”
Someone at another table snapped a cell phone picture of Wharton in seeming indifference to the homeless man sitting a table away. The picture went viral as critics of the new direction made their case before Wharton had rolled it out.
“They created this story … which is just an outright lie,” Wharton continued. “That hurts.”
The complex relationship between two Memphians who see each other several times a week but don’t really know each other demonstrates how complex the problem of the homeless is in Memphis, and perhaps in other cities.
