retail news in context, analysis with attitude

CBS News has a brief piece about Aretha Franklin, and how the Queen of Soul is trying to get into shape at age 70. Her secret - big box stores.

She walks around them and has lost more than 85 pounds over the past year or so.

“I stay in great shape. I walk. I am very, very fit...walking K-Marts, the Superstores, Wal-Marts,” she says.
KC's View:
I missed this story ... so thanks to the MNB reader who brought it to my attention. (Nice to know that you folks "get" the kinds of stories that turn me on...)
