We lead our show with Target, who once again impressed the retail world with a solid earnings call—we go beyond the numbers to discuss their initiatives on tap for the upcoming quarter and year. After, we discuss two very different calls from the home improvement sector in Home Depot and Lowe’s, and look ahead to our off-price show next week. Our interview guest is Meghann Martindale, the Global Head of Retail Research at CBRE, who joins us to discuss CBRE’s recent report detailing forecasts for food and beverage (and it’s interplay with retail real estate) as well as their Holiday Retail Trends report. As an aside, we would like to thank Feedspot, who included the Retail Focus Podcast as a top 25 retail podcast in their blog posted this week.
