Executive Edition is a must have
Executive Edition is a must have

Before Shop-Eat-Surf, there were two sites I paid for premium content on. One is Surfline, the other is the Wall Street Journal. One is about all things surf, the other, the best business content site in the world. Shop-eat-surf is the intersection of those two worlds. Shop-Eat-Surf provides everything from coverage of events, people, brands and trends. However, beyond the Executive Edition "wall" is more meaty analysis and interpretation of financial statements, business models and brand philosophies; why certain brands and companies are succeeding, where others aren't. The Executive Edition is a must have read if the business of surf and action sports are on your radar screen.

The vertical trend continues in the industry as Zumiez disclosed in a quarterly filing that it holds a 14.3% interest in an industry manufacturer of apparel and hardgoods.

 

It paid $2 million for the investment, which was made in May of this year. It did not disclose the name of the manufacturer.

 

Another large retailer, PacSun, recently acquired the license for the Modern Amusement brand, which it will design, manufacture and sell.

 

On the other side of the equation, industry manufacturers continue to invest in retail, including Billabong’s recent acquisition of West 49 in Canada, Becker Surf in Southern California, and Rush Surf in Australia.
