Gordmans, Oracle team toward store growth

BY Katherine Boccaccio

Omaha, Neb. – Midwestern department store retailer Gordmans Stores, which recently announced plans to expand its store base nearly 40% over a three-year period, said it will move forward with the Oracle Retail platform as a means to support the aggressive growth initiative.

The Oracle solution set utilized by Gordmans included core merchandising foundation, inventory management, pricing, retail financials, warehouse receiving and sales auditing. To guide the technology transformation, Gordmans chose Oracle Partner OLR as its systems integration and support partner. OLR’s consultants worked with Gordmans internal IT team to clearly map system requirements and tailor a solution to support current needs and the vision for the future.

According to Richard Heyman, CIO at Gordmans, OLR provided tools, collateral and templates to support a smooth and efficient transition. The engagement spanned Gordmans’ entire initiative, from initial analysis and project scoping to post go-live transition support. As part of its ongoing support, OLR provides application resources that enable the retailer to focus on key strategic initiatives.

Sport Chalet launches Treasure Hunt challenge for divers

BY Katherine Boccaccio

Los Angeles – Sport Chalet said Tuesday it has launched its fourth-consecutive Treasure Hunt dive, which invites certified scuba divers to participate by diving to find six sunken treasure bars hidden in diving locations off the northern and southern California coasts and in a special marine destination in Arizona.

From June 25 to 18, Sport Chalet will release one clue every Tuesday and Thursday to help divers identify the secret locations of the six gold-painted treasure bars; clues will be posted online and in all participating Sport Chalet retail stores.

In conjunction with TUSA, Aqua Lung, BodyGlove, Sherwood, Mares, Pelican, Watershot and Atomic Aquatics, Sport Chalet will officially drop the treasure bars into the water on July 8, giving divers from California and Arizona a chance to collect several clues before diving for the prizes.

"At Sport Chalet, our experts aim to bring our customers extraordinary experiences when it comes to pursuing the sport they love. Sport Chalet was built on diving, so our Treasure Hunt dive is the perfect opportunity to reward our customers for their loyalty to not only Sport Chalet, but also to the underwater world of Scuba diving," said Craig Levra, chairman and CEO of Sport Chalet.

We're heading to the location to join the treasure hunting underwater. Me and my team already joined an event like this at scuba diving Cebu event. The whole experience was very exciting and I really enjoyed such event. I learned so much from it and I hope I can use my experience for this treasure hunting event.
