      “If you add in the cost of holding them and a little cost of interest, I think they’re still a little cheaper than the ones we added to the inventory this year,” Chief Financial Officer Richard Galanti said on a September call with investors.

      Kohl’s and Express reported gross margins of 33.05% and 39.6% on their second-quarter earnings calls in July, while Costco’s fourth-quarter margins came in at 11.84% in August.
      Analysts are expecting gross margins to shrink for each of the companies next quarter, according to data from Refinitiv.

      As a digital-first business, brand expert Nick Ede says Made.com was lightyears ahead of its competition with its swish website, easy-to-use app and their virtual interior design service – which gave customers free advice for creating their dream living space.

      Last year’s holiday-themed pajamas are available on Kohl’s shelves for 25% off at $39.
      And clothing retailer Express Inc. is putting its excess holiday items and New Year’s Eve dresses in its outlets, the company said during the Wells Fargo Consumer Conference in September.

      Keurig K-Mini: $50

      Save $40

      Like the name suggests, the K-Mini is Keurig’s smallest brewer. It only holds enough water to brew a single 6- to 12-ounce cup at a time, so you have to add fresh water after every cup. But with no water reservoir, it has a depth of just 11 inches, about 4 inches less than the K-Slim. If saving counter space is your No. 1 priority, the K-Mini is the best Keurig for you. Just note that this deal is only available on the oasis color variant.

      Online prices for electronics, toys and apparel were down in September, according to the Adobe Digital Price Index, as retailers offered deals to entice early holiday shoppers and rid themselves of inventory before Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving when many Americans traditionally shop for gifts.

      When Chloe Macintosh, Brent Hoberman, Julien Callède and Ning Li launched Made.com from their East London office in 2010, the co-founders had their sights set on becoming ‘Generation Rent”s go-to homeware brand.

      But Liza Amlani, principal at consultancy Retail Strategy Group, said there’s a chance that shoppers will lose interest when they feel that some of last year’s on-trend merchandise is “no longer relevant.”

      It’s possible that there’s an external source, such as a client or senior stakeholder, who is moving the goalposts while your manager tries to keep up, so understanding their perspective can help realign your common goals.

      Keurig K-Duo: $140

      Save $30

      Whether you just need a single cup for a quick pick-me-up, or it’s time to get the lead out with a full pot, the K-Duo has got you covered. This two-in-one brewer from Keurig can make single cups using K-pods, or a full 12-cup pot using your favorite blend of ground coffee. It has a large 60-ounce water tank, and a pause function so you can grab yourself a cup while it’s still brewing without making a mess.

      Nick continued: ‘The tides have changed in home furnishings and with competition so fierce from John Lewis and their successful every day range and also the frustration of having to wait weeks if not month for delivery the glow has come off the brand and it is losing money fast.

      For example, sending a weekly written update at a time that suits you will help you to take back some agency and demonstrate that you’re capable of being trusted to run projects, while also helping with your career development.

      While dealing with a ghost boss can be tricky, it can also be an opportunity to demonstrate your leadership skills by taking charge of the situation and show initiative in running projects while your boss is nowhere to be found. 

      Apple also introduced a new iPad, starting at $499, with an all-screen design that places the front-facing camera to the longer side of the device and the lightning port at the more widely used USB-C connection.

      The iPad Pro also delivers up to 35 percent faster graphics performance and includes a 16-core Neural Engine that can process 15.8 trillion operations per second, helping it keep up ‘with the most demanding workflow.’

      ‘The performance of M2 turbocharges even the most demanding workflows, from photographers editing massive photo libraries and designers manipulating complex 3D objects, to healthcare professionals taking advanced imaging and analysis, to gamers enjoying graphics-intensive games,’ Apple shared in the announcement.

      Industry expert Paolo Pescatore, from PP Foresight, said the new devices were the latest example of Apple ‘flexing its proven strategy of broadening the portfolio of devices in each segment to cater for everyone’.

      Nick concluded: gadgetinku ‘With TV shows like The Repair Shop and TikTok tutorials showing us how to upcycle furniture, shoppers are now aware that furniture is something that can increase value in future – unlike the products Made sell.’
