Target to put QR codes on holiday toys

BY Staff Writer

Minneapolis — Target Corp. will introduce QR codes in stores in time for the holiday shopping season. Beginning Oct. 14, each of the chain’s Top 20 toys will have a QR code that shoppers can scan with their mobile device, allowing them to purchase the toy directly and ship it for free to anyone, anywhere in the U.S. The toys will be promoted with signs featuring the QR codes.

“Our in-store QR codes for this year’s top toys will add real convenience for busy moms,” said Stephanie Lucy, VP of toys, Target. “Now, rather than hoping the kids won’t notice when a gift is slipped into the cart, guests can scan the QR codes to buy top toys and have them shipped anywhere for free.”

Target is also debuting an online and mobile toy catalog, which includes coupons that can be used on a guest’s total purchase. Shoppers can also create a digital Wish List that is shareable via email.

Wet Seal urges shareholders to reject Clinton efforts to gain control of board

BY Marianne Wilson

New York — The Wet Seal Inc. encouraged its shareholders on Wednesday to reject efforts by its third-largest investor, Clinton Group, to gain control of the board, Reuters reported. The company’s board has eight seats, of which one is vacant.

Clinton, which holds approximately 7% of Wet Seal, said retailer earlier in the day backtracked on an offer, made via an investment banker, for four directors to resign in exchange for the activist investor ending its move, according to the report.

Clinton has argued that Wet Seal’s performance over the last five years has been unnecessarily poor, and that the board has made missteps in its hiring and strategy.

"We strongly urge our shareholders to revoke or withhold their consent to allow Clinton Group to replace six of the seven current members of our board, including our two recently added members, with five of their own candidates," Wet Seal chairman Hal Kahn said in a statement. "We believe that maintaining a degree of stability and continuity on our board is critical as we approach the holiday season.”

Wet Seal on Tuesday reported a 12.7% decline in September same-store sales. Clinton has argued that Wet Seal’s performance over the last five years has been unnecessarily poor, and that the board has made missteps in its hiring and strategy, Reuters said.

Kroger transforms headquarters for breast cancer awareness

BY Staff Writer

Cincinnati — Throughout the month of October, Kroger is lighting up its Cincinnati headquarters with pink spotlights and 150-ft. banners, celebrating breast cancer awareness month.

The text campaign is an added element to Kroger’s annual company-wide campaign, Giving Hope a Hand, which, in partnership with key suppliers like General Mills and Yoplait, generates $3 million to support local breast cancer initiatives in communities across the country served by the Kroger Family of Stores. The building banners announce a new text-driven donation campaign: each time someone texts PINK to 80404, Yoplait will donate $1 – up to $75,000 – to Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

“Adding the text-to-donate channel lets customers lend their support to the cause, wherever they are,” said Keith Dailey, Kroger spokesman. “We’re pleased to be adding this additional option to support the fight against breast cancer.”

The Giving Hope a Hand program features Kroger associates who are breast cancer survivors on customized packages of Kroger and national brand items sold exclusively in the Kroger Family of Stores. This year, 48 Kroger women share their stories of survival and hope on these specially marked packages, and on a special interactive website: Sharingcourage.com.

In addition, Kroger will feature some of these associate survivors on local market billboards in select Kroger family towns including: Atlanta; Indianapolis; Detroit; Phoenix; Salt Lake City; Denver; Columbus, Ohio; Louisville, KY; Nashville, Tenn; Houston; and Cincinnati.
