BY Katherine Boccaccio

St. Paul, Minn. — Manhattan Associates said Monday that outdoor chain Gander Mountain has selected its Enterprise Order Management and Store Inventory & Fulfillment solutions to help drive omni-channel enterprise transformation.

Gander is using the Manhattan solutions to create a seamless experience for its customers across channels with a single view of inventory, and to allow Gander shoppers to control how and when they take delivery of Gander merchandise.

"In a highly competitive environment where the cross-channel sale is becoming more and more important for the industry, order management and the associated in-store execution capabilities are the most critical piece of the retail infrastructure to get right," said Derek Siddons, VP Omni-Channel Strategy at Gander Mountain.

Report: Consumer spending rises more than expected

BY Katherine Boccaccio

Washington, D.C. — A report released Monday by the Commerce Dept. said that March consumer spending in the U.S. advanced more than forecast – rising 0.2% after a 0.7% increase in February.

The bigger-than-expected gain reflected a jump in services, such as utilities, due to cooler-than-usual temperatures. On average, Bloomberg economists expected spending to be flat in March. “It’s a relatively decent showing for spending, but consumers won’t be able to sustain the current pace if income growth continues to disappoint,” Millan Mulraine, an economist for TD Securities USA, told Bloomberg.

Incomes increased 0.2% in March after climbing 1.1% in February.
