    Completely different.   Neimann Marcus is a specialty store with significantly fewer locations. They only have 42 locations nationwide. They are also a private company.   Not even in the same league or market. They are selling specialty luxury brands not Levi, Dockers, IZOD, etc.   So what you are saying is that JCP needed to close 96% of their 1,100 stores. Then convince their board that they are going from $17 billion in revenue to $4 billion in revenue?   Also they...
The Apple premium model will never work in a department store. He should have known that from the start (too much time in a RDF). The premium model works for Apple because Apple is a brand and they have high loyalty and strict control over distribution and pricing.   Why would people pay $50 more for a product at JCP's store-within-a-store, when they can in 4 minutes walk to the other department store and buy the EXACT product for less?   JCP is not a product...

  You might want to correct yourself... it is an open platform, NOT an open store. There are policies and terms to get an app on the Google Play. Violate the rules and your app will be removed.   I am free to make all the "crappy" apps I want and place them on any number of third-party store or even on my own website for side loading. Just dont expect to have them on Google Play or at least for very long. The platform is open.   Was that enough spin for you and your...
