business news in context, analysis with attitude

We're about to head into the July 4 weekend, and so I'm going to take the first of several summer breaks - I'll be off starting tomorrow, and will return on Monday, July 10.

However, while I'm off I am going to file a series of FaceTime videos about a variety of off-the-beaten-path subjects that offer business lessons to retailers.  (I don't want you to forget me, and I don't want you to think I've forgotten you.) I'll post them once a day and will shoot you a Wake Up Call to let you know that they're up.  (Not on July 4, though.)

As always, the MNB archives also are open, and if anything big breaks, I'll find my way back to the laptop to offer timely news and commentary.

Have a good weekend, and good holiday, and I'll see you soon.
