Our interview guest is Eric Talley of STANLEY Security, who joins us to discuss the current state of retail security and loss prevention, how 2020 was a “perfect storm” resulting in record retail theft, and things retailers are doing to ensure associate safety. In news, we discuss CVS’ latest front-store sales numbers, Sprouts seeking to grow their footprint again, Whole Foods piloting a delivery charge, and Ingles impressing on the sales front. And, we look ahead to rising costs of shipping containers and how it may affect holiday sales.
