My top ten Forbes posts of 2019

I will soon be celebrating my third anniversary as a (now Senior) Contributor for Forbes. For those of you that regularly follow my writing and spread the word, I am so very grateful.

As the year–and the decade–comes to a close, I’m highlighting, the the ten posts that captured the most attention during the course of 2019.

  1. Omnichannel Is Dead. The Future Is Harmonized Retail
  2. Gap, J. Crew, Hudson’s Bay And The Unrelenting Collapse Of The Middle In Retail
  3. Blake Nordstrom: Gone too soon…
  4. To Defy the Retail Apocalypse Target and Best Buy Embrace the Blur
  5. Pier 1 Imports: From Bad To Worse To Dire
  6. The Toys Are Back In Town: A Reimagined Toys ‘R’ Us Returns
  7. Neiman Marcus Kicks The Can Down The Road. So Now What?
  8. Ulta And Sephora Keep Defying The ‘Retail Apocalypse’
  9. Out On A Limb: 14 Predictions For Retail In 2019
  10. Sears Lives To Die Another Day

As a bonus, here’s the post that did not generate quite a much attention, but proved to be perhaps the most prescient. And here’s another that I predict will prove to be by the end of next year.

Happy holidays. Let’s be careful out there.
