Sneakerology, Sydney, Australia

BY CSA STAFF

Athletic footwear is displayed like prized museum artifacts in Sneakerology, a 600-sq.-ft.-store in Sydney, Australia. Each shoe — there are nearly 300 in total — is presented in its own plywood box on the wall. The boxes are neatly ordered and offset by half unit on each level. Each has a number that identifies the shoe inside it.

Shoppers can select the pair they like by entering the number in one of two touch screens that are located in the center of the store. The touch screens also provide information on the design and function of the selected shoe. Sneakerology was designed by Facet Studio, Sydney.

Authentic footwear were nice
Authentic footwear were nice and has good quality, however it is also very expensive. When you just start the business, it is also a good strategy to get you shop an attractive design with the use of different decorations or technologies. - J. Kale Flagg

Guns in the workplace

BY Marianne Wilson

New York City — On June 17, 2011, Texas Governor Rick Perry signed a bill into law that will limit an employer’s right to prohibit guns and ammunition in the workplace. While the law does not necessarily allow employees to carry firearms at work, it does allow employees to store and have access to firearms kept in privately owned vehicles parked on or in employer provided parking areas. Given that 461,724 Texas residents hold a concealed handgun license, this law is likely to have a significant impact on the workplace across a broad swath of industries, including retail.

Report: Landlords object to Borders sale plan

BY Staff Writer

New York City — A report by Reuters on Tuesday said that a group of landlords have filed objections in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Manhattan, disputing the process by which Borders Group is attempting to auction itself out of bankruptcy.

According to the nearly 20 landlords that filed objections on Friday and Monday, the plan offers no information regarding which leases would be assumed by potential buyers of Borders’ assets.

Shopping center owner Glimcher Properties, based in Columbus, Ohio, said the plan leaves landlords “in the dark,” according to court papers and reported by Reuters.

The report also said that landlords are objecting to the amount of time allowed for objecting to the fates of leases.

The proposed process includes a July 19 auction for Borders’ assets. If no initial bid is made by a Sunday deadline, however, the auction would most likely be canceled and private equity group Najafi Cos. would win by default with its "stalking horse" bid of $215 million in cash and $220 million in assumed liabilities.

Borders has made no comment on the proceedings, which will go before the court on Thursday morning.
