retail news in context, analysis with attitude

•  Michael Dubin, the founder of Dollar Shave Club, is stepping down as CEO of the company that he sold to Unilever in 2016 for $1 billion.  He will remain on the company's board and will function as a special advisor.

Dubin is being succeeded by Jason Goldberger, who most recently was CEO of Sur la Table, where he saw the company through a bankruptcy, the closure of the vast majority of its stores, and the shift to a more digital-centric model.
