Smack Sportswear opens first flagship

BY Marianne Wilson

Torrance, Calif. — Smack Sportswear, manufacturer of indoor and beach volleyball apparel, announced that its first flagship officially opened its doors on Feb. 23.

The store, in Huntington Beach, Calif., sits inside of the former Huntington Beach Training Center, which has since been renamed the "Smack Center." It houses eight indoor volleyball courts and three Futsal (indoor football) courts. Smack’s flagship store offers curb appeal to the thousands of coaches, teams, and visitors to the facility.

"Store sales in our first year of operations are expected to add around $200,000 to $300,000 to our top-line growth in 2013. But higher revenue growth is expected as we form relationships with our core target market —the coaches and owners who require uniforms and equipment for hundreds of players," said Bill Sigler, CEO of Smack.

The Smack store sells a wide range of Smack indoor, beach, and casual apparel, as well as equipment, footwear, and gear from major brands like Nike, Asics, and others. It also features an interactive "Online Design Center" that lets Smack customers design their own custom uniforms and place online orders.

There is also an Exchange Server 2010 relevant Exam, the 70-662 (Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 Configuration) which counts as credit towards two Microsoft Certifications (the Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist - MCTS and the Microsoft Certified IT Professional - MCITP Certifications). 70-686

Walmart in line to open 500 Neighborhood Market stores by fiscal 2016

BY Marianne Wilson

New York — Walmart will open as many as 115 small-format stores this year, according to Bill Simon, president and CEO of Walmart U.S.

Simon discussed the chain’s store portfolio during a presentation at Raymond James Institutional Investors conference. He noted that Walmart’s smaller-format stores (below 60,000 sq. ft.) are making inroads against dollar stores, supermarkets and drug stores and will play a key role in the company’s future.

“They compete really well against multiple channels,” Simon said.

Simon explained that Walmart thinks of its smaller-format units, which include both the Walmart Express and Walmart Neighborhood Market banners, as hybrid stores rather than specific niche competitors.

“They are more hybrid stores than you would think … they all have fresh food and pharmacy and the Walmart everyday low price promise,” he said. “And they are all enabled with.com capabilities, and Site-To-Store capabilities. So you have that endless aisle that we can offer that others might not be able to offer.”

Walmart is particularly bullish on its Neighborhood Market concept, with a direct line to 500 by fiscal 2016, according to Simon.

“This is a great opportunity for us, he said. “Five hundred is by no means the end. It’s merely just the beginning of what we think the opportunity might be for this format.”

But the Walmart chief said the chain remains equally dedicated to its superstore concept.

“Supercenters are still a great growth vehicle for us from a dollar perspective and we’ll continue to build those where we see the opportunities,” Simon said. “We’ll add about 125 new supercenters this year.”

this will certainly effect Walgreens, CVS and Rite Aid. If they roll this out at 115 stores it will take a while, but eventually you will see them close enough to Walgreens or CVS to impact their bottom line. Any time a supercenter opens near a Walgreens, the pharmacy and front end of Walgreens suffers a loss of 25% or more.
