retail news in context, analysis with attitude

The Associated Press reports that Wayfair, the online furniture retailer, is planning to open its first bricks-and-mortar store, n Florence, Kentucky, a dozen miles from Cincinnati.

According to the story, “the 20,000-square-foot outlet store will sell items that have been returned but are in good condition, as well as other discounted goods.”
