In this episode the team discusses:

  • Target and Walmart’s banner Q2 earnings and what, if anything stands in their way.
  • If Allbirds has all the right stuff to become a competitive and successful player in the activewear space, or if this pre-IPO move will have them wishing they stuck to the soft and sweat-wicking shoes that they’re good at.
  • Giant Eagle becoming the first grocery chain to accept Venmo and Paypal payments in stores and how they might be grooming customers for more GetGo cashier-less experiences beyond the convenience store.
  • If Instagram’s move into ads will get a “like “or a “swipe” from consumers and how brands have to carefully think about their approach to this shiny penny of social commerce.
  • Ikea’s new scan-and-go concept store in Shanghai and while Hemant and Anne are ready to visit tomorrow, why Mohit may not be joining them just yet.
