According to Williams Trading analyst Sam Poser, is reportedly cutting ties with six more primary retailers. Most department stores and multi-brand niche retailers’ board rooms should be shaken by these decisions.
Nike reported in August that its accounts at Fred Meyer, Zappos, Dillard’s, City Blue, VIM, EbLens, Belk, Bob’s Stores, and Boscov’s will be closed. While those companies were significant, today’s “vacation list” includes DSW and Urban Outfitters.
Anyone who has been watching retail’s creative destruction, which has been intensified by the pandemic, knows that these moves have been in the works for a long time. Department stores and specialty stores, which have previously been a sanctuary for these companies, have gradually evolved from custodians of their sacred national labels to purveyors and peddlers.
All of this is part of the great race to the bottom, in which specialty shops and department stores have lost sight of their consumer-centric origins in order to compete with the internet and low-cost discounters. Hundreds of thousands of square feet of undifferentiated retail space, razor-thin margins, and wholesale closures resulted as a result of this. For several, the collateral harm was a loss of brand equity.

On Cyber Monday, UPS reportedly ordered its drivers to stop picking up deliveries at some of the country’s largest retailers, including Nike and Gap, because they had surpassed the distribution company’s power allocations. The Wall Street Journal announced Wednesday that UPS had also halted package pickups for Macy’s, L.L.Bean, Hot Topic, and Newegg, citing internal documents verified by UPS employees in various regions. According to Glenn Zaccara, UPS’ director of media relations, UPS had set “unique capacity allocations” for its customers over Black Friday weekend and during the holiday season as it works to deliver packages at record volumes.
Complete Retail’s Opinion: “Shipageddon,” as one Total Retail contributor dubbed the combination of anticipated huge increases in online holiday sales and delivery demand with overburdened national carriers like UPS, has begun and will only get worse as the holiday shopping season progresses. Retailers offered holiday sales earlier this year in an effort to spread out the season over a longer period of time, avoiding delivery delays and missed shipments in the process. However, as previously mentioned, retailers are already at peak, despite the fact that the holiday season is only weeks away. Although the delayed orders will eventually be shipped to customers, this is contingent on more space in UPS’ network being available. It’s unclear whether it will happen this week or on December 26.

In a statement to Business Insider, UPS said, “UPS continues to work closely with our largest customers to steer volume to capacity and ensure the UPS network is secure for all customers.” “Different power allocations were made last weekend and during the holiday season as part of this partnership.”
In order to better sustain the holiday boom, UPS said it has “20 new facilities and 14 additional aircraft for the peak season,” as well as “expanded our weekend operations and greatly increased the speed of our ground distribution network.”
This year, there will be an estimated 7 million excess packages due to increased demand for shipping goods, which carriers will simply not be able to handle.
Retailers have set earlier deadlines for guaranteed holiday delivery to help mitigate this flood of shipments.

Nike, PVH Corp (Tommy Hilfiger, Calvin Klein), HermanKay, and retailers Kohl’s and Macy’s all took part in a blockchain proof of concept (PoC) that used RFID tags to track goods across the supply chain.
The CHIP (CHain Integration Project) Initiative, which aims to use blockchain for product data exchange from manufacturing to store, held a proof-of-concept at Auburn University’s RFID Facility. A whitepaper has been published by the RFID Lab.
The companies listed were part of the project’s first step, which effectively incorporated serialized data streams from manufacturing to retail, resulting in a clear trail of the product’s journey. From January to December 2019, the brands contributed item-level data streams from different supply chain nodes, according to Auburn University.
Using RFID systems, the PoC was able to collect 642,612 objects, with 222,974 items being written to the blockchain. Around 87 percent of the data came from distribution sources. The project’s aim was to provide end-to-end visibility by enabling trade partners and supply chain participants to access standard information.
