Lord & Taylor, Westchester’s Ridge Hill, Yonkers, N.Y.

BY CSA STAFF

With its sleek all-white interiors and dramatic glass-steel storefront, Lord & Taylor’s store at Westchester’s Ridge Hill, Yonkers, N.Y., is its most contemporary to date.

The 80,000-sq.-ft., two-level space, designed in partnership with Giorgio Borruso Design, Marina del Ray, Calif., has a spacious, ultra-modern feel. Streamlined fixtures and large white tiles are featured throughout the store, which utilizes an asymmetrical racetrack aisle for navigation. Angled lighting fixtures in the fitting rooms and the use of floor plates at the foot of the mannequins (to identify outfits) enhance the modern theme.

The Ridge Hill location is Lord & Taylor’s eleventh store in the state of New York and its second full-line store to open this year. The retailer, owned by Canada’s Hudson Bay Co. is due to open a store at Mizner Park, Boca Raton, Fla., later this year, bringing its total number of full-priced stores to 50.

Westchester’s Ridge Hill, a Forest City Enterprise property, opened in October 2011. It is the largest mixed-use outdoor shopping center in the New York metropolitan area.

Sam’s Club event asks “will it grill?”

BY CSA STAFF

BENTONVILLE, Ark. — Grilling is the theme of Sam’s Club’s annual "Spring Taste of Sam’s Club" event, and the retailer is inviting members and non-members to sample some unexpected grilling options at its free event taking place Friday, April 27 to Sunday, April 29 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.

With the help of Joshua Bousel, the meatmaster at Serious Eats and Meatwave.com host, Sam’s Club is grilling frequently shopped items from fire-roasted avocados and watermelons to angel food cake and waffles to explore which items can handle the flame-grilled heat.

"An extended grilling season means backyard chefs may want to think beyond the burger to discover new recipes that will bring a twist to the traditional barbecue staples," said Bousel. "Sam’s Club offers plenty of inspiration around fun, fresh ingredients to sear, marinate and roast. By taking advantage of their wide assortment, I’ll be able to expand my menu choices and easily entertain my guests."

Joshua Bousel’s grilling adventures with unusual ingredients will be captured on video and highlighted on the Sam’s Club Facebook page starting April 23. During this timeframe, members are encouraged to step off the sidelines and contribute their own wacky "Will it Grill?" items. From pizza and eggs to oranges and waffles, members can tweet @SamsClub using the hashtag #SimpleSavings or "Like" Facebook.com/SamsClub to share what unexpected items they would like to see sizzle. The most unique ideas will be featured on Facebook.com/SamsClub the week of April 25.

"Our annual Spring Taste of Sam’s Club event is an interactive way for members and non-members to prepare for grilling season and ‘try before they buy’ our selection of fresh meats and seafood, fresh produce, beverages and gourmet-to-go bakery items," said Shawn Baldwin, SVP fresh/freezer/cooler and demos at Sam’s Club. "The Sam’s Club 200% freshness guarantee on these items also means families can feel confident about serving top-quality meals throughout the summer grilling season."

OfficeMax vet assumes reigns of Walgreens’ supply chain management

BY CSA STAFF

DEERFIELD, Ill. — Walgreens has named Reuben Slone as SVP supply chain management, where he will have leadership responsibility for distribution, transportation, systems integration and engineering, Lean and Six Sigma supply chain initiatives and community outreach.

Slone will join Walgreens May 16 and will report to Walgreens president of community management Mark Wagner.

"Reuben has deep experience in leading supply chain operations, improving service and efficiency and driving innovation in the management of inventory from distribution centers to the stores," Wagner said.

Slone comes to Walgreens from OfficeMax, where he served as EVP supply chain and general manager of services. In his eight years with OfficeMax, he was responsible for inventory management, transportation and warehousing, strategic sourcing, real estate, store development, facilities, print and copy, business-to-business technology, managed print services and break room and facilities maintenance products businesses. In addition, Slone managed front-end inventory at OfficeMax and oversaw supplier development. Prior to joining OfficeMax, Slone held various executive positions with Whirlpool, General Motors, Federal-Mogul, EDS and Ernst & Young.

Slone also serves as secretary of the board of directors of Aspire of Illinois, a nonprofit organization serving children and adults with developmental disabilities.

Slone takes over supply chain management responsibility from Randy Lewis, who is transitioning to a new role with the company. Lewis will continue to help advise on the company’s programs for people with disabilities and will play a critical role in several of Walgreens key strategic initiatives.

"Randy has been and continues to be a valued leader at Walgreens," Wagner said. "He has led the supply chain organization for 16 years with integrity, innovation and compassion. We are pleased that we will continue to benefit from his experience as we extend our ground-breaking hiring program for people with disabilities. Randy also will assist with Reuben’s transition and other strategic initiatives that take advantage of his 20 years with Walgreens."
