retail news in context, analysis with attitude

Bloomberg reports that Steve Eastman, who has been running Target’s online business, has left the company in the wake of last month’s website crash because of “overwhelming demand for new designer apparel.” The company said that Eastman left to “pursue other opportunities.”

No replacement has been named.
KC's View:
I’ve come over to the side of the MNB users who said that they believed the Target website crash was the best thing that every happened to the company, propelling it into the news in a way that never would have happened had everything worked smoothly.

I’d hire Eastman to do the same for MNB ... but I probably cannot afford him.
