It pertains to my business
It pertains to my business

I’m an avid reader of Shop-Eat-Surf because it’s really the only online newsletter that I have found that is not only industry related, but also because it’s not so “guy-centric.” I find that a lot of the information I read on the site pertains to my business (as a swimwear designer) and keeps me up to date on what other companies and other women in the industry in general are doing which is not only inspiring but also helps me gauge the future direction of my business as well.

I feel privileged to read the Executive Edition because I know I am getting insider industry information before it hits the mainstream media channels. And it’s always good to know what my friends are up to in the industry.

WSJ story worth reading about impact of huge discounts at Saks

By Tiffany Montgomery

The Wall Street Journal has a front page story today that examines the ramifications of Saks Fifth Avenue's decision to cut prices 70 percent on designer goods before Thanksgiving.

It touches on many of the issues being discussed in the action sports industry - discounting, the survival of independent retailers, brand-owned stores, broadening distribution of goods and product segmentation.

The story is behind WSJ's paid wall but see a summary here. Legally, I can't run the whole story because it is copyrighted.
