Foot Locker unveils new fitness concept store

BY Katherine Boccaccio

New York — Foot Locker announced Tuesday the introduction of SIX:02, an elevated retail concept featuring fitness apparel and athletic footwear for women.

The first three stores will open for the holiday season in Stamford Mall in Stamford, Conn., Willowbrook Mall in Wayne, N.J., and North Star Mall in San Antonio, Texas.

SIX:02’s concept is based on being the first-to-market design around a broad assortment of women’s athletic brands in an environment created specifically for that female customer, according to Foot Locker.

The store features dedicated fit zones and fitting lounge areas, as well as a service concept that features an on-premise consultative selling team.

“A woman’s day tends to be packed with work, family, and friends. She often finds a moment for herself at the gym, during a run, or at an early morning fitness class," said Stacy Cunningham, executive VP marketing at Foot Locker. "She deserves a place to find premium fitness and athletic gear that allows her to combine her personal style and versatility with performance features. We are excited to offer her that opportunity and experience at SIX:02."

Survey: Most consumers think best deals offered on Thanksgiving weekend

BY CSA STAFF

Los Angeles — Survey results released Tuesday by PriceGrabber found that 71% of consumers believe that retailers offer better deals during Thanksgiving weekend than they do during the rest of the winter holiday shopping season, up from 58% in 2011.

When consumers who indicated that the best deals can be found over the Thanksgiving weekend were asked which days retailers offer the best prices, 71% said Black Friday (Nov. 23), down from 80% in 2011 and 86% in 2010, and 41% said Cyber Monday (Nov. 26), up from 37% last year and 33% in 2010.

When asked which days they plan to shop over the Thanksgiving weekend, 42% said Black Friday (Nov. 23), followed by 38% who said Cyber Monday (Nov. 26); 21% indicated Saturday (Nov. 24), 13% selected Sunday (Nov. 25), and 10% said Thanksgiving Day (Nov. 22).

When consumers planning to shop on Black Friday were asked to select all of the reasons why they planned to do so, 70% said that they can find the best prices on that day. Thirty-three percent noted that they plan to shop on Black Friday because it is a tradition with family and friends; 22% indicated they have the day off from work and enjoy shopping; and 7% said they like the thrill of fighting the crowds.

“Shoppers are eager to find deals this holiday season as they continue to keep a tight grip on their purse strings. Our survey data reveals that consumers believe some of the best prices will be offered over the Thanksgiving weekend, especially on Black Friday and Cyber Monday,” said Rojeh Avanesian, VP marketing and analytics of PriceGrabber.com. “While Black Friday remains a popular day for in-store shopping, we have seen a steady growth in online shopping on Cyber Monday. We expect this trend to continue as shoppers harness the power of the Internet to find the best pricing and take advantage of free shipping and other retailer incentives.”

According to the PriceGrabber’s survey, 64% of Black Friday shoppers plan to take advantage of extended store hours to start shopping even earlier this year. Twenty-four percent plan to start shopping in stores on Black Friday between midnight and 4 a.m.; 27% indicated they will start shopping between 4 a.m. and 8 a.m.; and 26% plan to shop between the hours of 8 a.m. and noon.

Fourteen percent indicated they plan to shop between noon and 10 p.m. and 9% of consumers indicated that they will start shopping at 10 p.m. on Thanksgiving evening to prepare for Black Friday sales if stores are open.

According to PriceGrabber’s survey, consumers cite clothing, consumer electronics and computers as the top gift purchases on Black Friday. Of the consumers who indicated that they will shop on Black Friday, 56% said they will purchase clothing as gifts. This was followed by 48% who said they will purchase consumer electronics; another 48% who said they will buy computers, laptops, tablets or related equipment; 37% who said they will purchase books, CDs, DVDs or video games; 32% who said they will purchase toys; and another 32% who said they will purchase shoes.

Other items shoppers will purchase this holiday season include jewelry and watches, gift cards, sporting goods, appliances, beauty, cosmetics and spa packages, and food or candy.
