Some top e-retailers embrace Green Monday, but most don’t

Get access to essential strategic content, in-depth reports, industry intelligence, and exclusive data. Yesterday was Green Monday, one of the most lucrative shopping days of the year. But for most top ecommerce retailers, it was treated as just another one of the promotion-filled days during December. Green Monday—which is the final Monday that comes 10 or more days before Christmas—is considered to be an essential part of the holiday shopping season. That’s because it comes at a point when consumers start getting serious about buying gifts, according to the online marketplace eBay Inc. The company  invented Green Monday in 2007 when the marketplace experienced one of its biggest sales days on the second Monday of December. The day has consistently ranked as one of eBay’s top five sales days of the year, the company says. However, only a few of the largest e-retailers used Green Monday as a specific reason to hold a sale. A Digital Commerce 360 analysis conducted on Monday of the Top 50 online retailers found just nine (18%) offered promotions directly tied to Green Monday. However, 31 retailers, or 62%, were running holiday-themed promotions of some kind. As retailers moved to...

Loewe pulls outfit after critics liken it to concentration camp uniforms

A fashion brand has withdrawn an outfit from sale after critics said it looked like a concentration camp uniform worn by victims of the Holocaust. Luxury Spanish fashion house Loewe launched the outfit on November 14 as part of its William De Morgan capsule collection. On Friday, fashion industry watchdog, Diet Prada, cited similarities to the concentration camp uniform, which also had vertical-stripes.  “Unable to see anything but concentration camp uniforms in this $1,840 ensemble,” Diet Prada wrote on their Instagram. “There’s not actually much left to the imagination when the resulting look is so uncannily disturbing.” The statement read: “It was brought to our attention that one of our looks featured in a magazine and part of our Arts and Crafts ceramicist William De Morgan could be misconstrued as referring to one of the most odious moments in the history of mankind. “It was absolutely never our intention and we apologise to anyone who might feel we were insensitive to sacred memories. The products featured have been removed from our commercial offering.” Before it was removed the item was advertised as a “Stripe Workwear Jacket White/Black” and cost (£740), ac...

China Bus Industry Research Report 2019-2025 Featuring 16 Major Enterprises: Profile, Operation, Output, Sales, Featured Products, Distribution, and More

Dublin, Nov. 13, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The “China Bus Industry Report, 2019-2025″ report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.This report highlights the following: China as the world’s largest bus manufacturer supplies nearly 50% of buses in the global market. China’s bus industry has made changes over the years, with output sliding at an annual average rate of 6.1% between 2015 and 2018. The downtrend in output will continue in 2019, due to a lack of market dynamism. The electric, global and high-end buses will turn to be the driver for the Chinese bus market. By product, coaches and public buses account for over 80% in China. In 2018, sales of all types of buses suffered a slump, apart from public buses which enjoyed a slight increase. Public bus: in 2018, the public bus market size reached roughly 100,000 units, on a par with what it was in 2015 and 2017 but much less than that in the peak year of 2016. It was proof that the bus market in China was still being redefined. Thereof, 8m/10m buses had become the mainstay of the market and would sustain growth. Coach: in 2018, sales of this type of bus plummeted as other ways to ...

Amazon has two of the best Apple AirPods deals you will find this holiday season and

Amazon has two of the best Apple AirPods deals you will find this holiday season and they are live … [+] now For me, the standout deals here are the 256GB iPhone XS because, although it is one year old, it’s $400 less than a 256GB iPhone 11 Pro. Amazon’s iPhone 6S is also an incredible deal for a cheap/backup phone and the store’s iPad Pro deal is likely one of the biggest savings you’ll see this holiday season because it’s such a new device. Pay attention to Walmart’s 6th gen iPad deal, this is a rock-solid device.  Seeing B&H discount the latest MacBook Pros along with the red hot Apple Watch Series 5 is a big surprise, I expected no discounts this year and Amazon’s AirPods deals should be as good as anything you find on Black Friday itself (with more stock now too).  For my dedicated store-by-store, Black Friday live deals guides you can check out available Amazon deals here, available Best Buy deals here and available Walmart deals here. While Black Friday 2019 shipping policies can be found for Amazon (here), Best Buy (here), Target (here) and Walmart (here). I will be extensively tracking Black Friday and Cyber Monday 2019 deals and publishing the best ...
