West Elm to launch new retail concept

BY Katherine Boccaccio

San Francisco — Williams-Sonoma announced that its West Elm division will launch a neighborhood market format, called West Elm Market, on Oct. 25, in Brooklyn N.Y. The Brooklyn store will be followed by the opening of eight Market in-store shops in West Elm stores across the country.

“We were inspired by the common sense shopkeeping of the classic general store to develop a collection of genuine and useful household goods that make even the most practical chore a little more enjoyable,” said West Elm president Jim Brett. “The Market store is designed to be a place to gather, learn, and connect.”

The community-driven concept will offer customers a “total home toolkit ” in four categories: kitchen, garden, care & repair and personal care. The lineup will include such diverse items as brooms and dusters manufactured by New York City Industries for the Blind, a line of handcrafted candles, soaps, and lotions made with ingredients purchased solely from U.S. suppliers, and artisan food products, with regional collections and themed assortments.

The debut Brooklyn store will include a café and a common area for community workshops. It will open in the same building as the brand’s home office – at 50 Washington Street.

The collection will launch on Westelm.com on Oct. 23.

“West Elm Market is a natural extension of the West Elm brand,” said Laura Alber, president and CEO, Williams-Sonoma.

Former NRF ARTS director joins board of software solutions provider

BY CSA STAFF

AUSTIN, Texas — Software solutions provider Starmount has named Richard Mader, president of Mader International Consulting and director emeritus of the Association for Retail Technology Standards (ARTS), to its board of directors.

As executive director of ARTS, a division of the National Retail Federation (NRF) — a position he held from 1999 to 2012 — Mader led the development of industry standards that would lower the costs of retail technology.

Mader has over 40 years’ experience in retail information management, having served as SVP and CIO for Boscov’s and Bon-Ton Department Stores, among other executive positions. He is recognized as a leader in retail technology and has presented at conferences throughout the world.

“I am delighted to join the board of Starmount,” Mader said. “I’ve known Jerry Rightmer and Joe Halloum since their days at 360Commerce — a company that was instrumental in shaping the direction of retail POS. I have worked closely with Jerry and his team on ARTS standards for many years, and their understanding of the retail industry has now elevated Starmount to a leadership position in mobile POS and mobile selling. Starmount applications embody the ARTS vision of building on standards that protect retailers’ investments and provide the flexibility to support rapid innovation and change.”
