retail news in context, analysis with attitude

According to 9 to 5 Mac, Ron Johnson - who rose to fame conceptualizing and running The Apple Stores, and then went down in flames when he tried to bring change to JC Penney - is planning a new startup.

The new business has him "launching a high-end, on-demand delivery service for gadgets, according to several people who have talked to him about it. And he has recruited some former Apple employees, including one-time Apple VP executive Jerry McDougal, to help."
KC's View:
Good for him.

I've never met Johnson, but I admire him … and my admiration grew when I saw an appearance he made at Stamford University's Graduate School of Business, talking about his business successes and failures.

I wrote about it and linked to it on MNB, and you can - and should - check it out here.
