Quotes

...Pier 1 Imports store. "All I want is my job back," said Caselman. "I want to be able to work during my pregnancy."
...have their fingers crossed for a strong 2014 holiday season," said Craig Rowley, VP and global practice leader for Hay Group's retail practice. "In the meantime, however, they're acting prudently. Though we've seen GDP jump by more than 4 percent in the second quarter, the same economic bump hasn't yet translated to the retail sector. Foot traffic remains slow, and back-to-school shopping had a slow start this year, so retailers are being careful in their holiday season planning."
The analysts wrote, "We are staying cautious on Pier 1 as we think its painful multi-year transition to omni-channel is just beginning. Our preferred name in home furnishings remains Williams-Sonoma, which we think has an enormous and enduring competitive advantage in e-commerce and customer analytics/personalized marketing. WSM is a pioneer of online retail, having launched its first e-commerce site in 1998. We are also cautious on Bed Bath and Beyond, as we think BBBY will see many of the same cost pressures as PIR in terms of e-commerce investments yet much less of a revenue lift given that BBBY’s revenue is 6x that of PIR. BBBY reports Q2 earnings on Sept 23, and we see a risk that comps and margins continue to disappoint."
Scott Schaeffer, RAIT's Chairman and CEO, said, "We are very excited to expand our directly held property portfolio utilizing our subsidiary Urban Retail. Our investment in Urban Retail is an investment in the future growth and diversification of RAIT, as we leverage Urban Retail's expertise, relationships and property management capabilities to target and acquire well positioned retail assets."
