Retail sales growing

Walmart, Home Depot and others have reported surpassing projected sales forecasts for this past quarter. With Walmart sales growing at 4.5%.

Interesting enough is their retail sales are outgrowing on-line sales. That obviously is not the trend we’ve been seeing for some time now.

Any intelligent ideas on why this would be?

I really do not know but is it possible that people that were on welfare and I assume did not have much money to spend on extras have now entered the work force and just might have money to spend and have never shopped or bought on line, so to Walmart we go.

Your answer is close to mine. The tax cut to the middle class was largely spent this past quarter following refund checks. Wal-Mart and Home Depot serve that middle lower income sector. I am personally a little concerned that increase is inflationary pressure on the same amount of goods sold rather than an increased volume of goods but have not seen confirmation of either,

All solid points.

I’m curious to see Amazon’s numbers.

Maybe online shopping is starting to max out. There are certain items that will always be better to buy in person.

I always viewed online shopping as "looking for a better deal". Just maybe everyone had a bit more money, economy is going good. If I can buy an item at the store and if it's within 10% of the online price, I just buy it. I hate waiting.

If you can get the "why" out of the article you are taking it on the surface as it states spending more on everything .......due to rising wages and tax breaks.

That leads me to believe it is inflation not demand that is the primary driver of this increase.

The article does not say if more truckloads were sold or if we paid more for the same merchandise we usually buy.

Is that before or after some form of a resolution is reached with all involved?

Online ordering for curbside pickup? Assuming that would count as a retail sale and not an online sale?

When you get down to it, also, maybe people are figuring out that for everyday things, online is not cheaper.

Just a couple guesses

We do a lot of order online pick up instore thing now. You can boost SkyMiles earnings if you are into that kind of thing. It's nice to just walk in to the service desk if you are in a hurry. I always wondered how that purchase was counted.

Maybe some of the new tax laws on online purchases are taking away a price point that online retailers have enjoyed. Purchasing a high ticket item with no tax is hard to compete with.

It’s definitely in China’s interest to work things out.
Xi and Trump have (it seems anyways) good personal chemistry.

China’s GDP slowed to 6.7, a two year low. While the US GDP grew to 4.1. A real 4.1, not some fed inflated crap like we had under Obarry.

Personally I think the landscape of certain items, typically manufactured in China has changed forever for the good.

A Factory in China produces X number of Taylor Made drivers. They produce X in production overrun. And then flood the market with genuine counterfeit clubs below Taylor Made’s MSRP.
That’s obviously not good.

Most people think of counterfeit products as a plastic Louis Vuitton handbag, sold on a corner in NYC.
But what China does is infinitely more harmful.
Genuine counterfeit products.
It’s a huge problem in golf, high end bicycles, apparel, tennis shoes.....
And as bad as it for those types of consumer products it’s twice as bad with tech products, iPhones, etc.
Anyone uninterested in an iPhone made in Wisconsin is an idiot.

https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.biz...-aapl.amp.html


Even products such as high end handbags. Plenty of people are clueless. While Louis Vuitton handbags are typically thought of as French made, some in Italy some in Spain. They’re in the process of opening their third US manufacturing facility.

https://www.bloomberg.com/news/artic...n-u-s-ceo-says

You don’t think $3000 handbags can be produced in China? Go through your wifes closet. Chanel, Balenciaga, A. McQueen... Sure, some are still made in Italy, France, etc. but a ton of them, for now anyways are made in China.
Americans still manufacture along with Europe the best products in the world.

Americans are in desperate need of living wage, manufacturing jobs. We have a pro-American, pro-business, builder as our president.

So IMO China’s days of manufacturing everything we buy is over.
And that’s a very good thing.

On-line is still generally cheaper.

I wouldn’t think curb side pickup would count as retail. Retail sales are generated from POS systems which are separate from an online check out system.

I could be wrong.

You really want to know what people think ? Or is it you really just want affirmation of what 'YOU" think ? If someone doesn't think like you what do you do? You pop a vein , call them the stupidest person alive, ask how they get around each day being so pathetic and just unleash this anger from the depths of your bowels and rage rage and rage some more.

NO thanks

Oh, you took the “real life” comment I made to you and said it back to me.


I’m comfortable allowing others here to weigh in on the previous comments.

The thread was going well. Gentlemen at the table with cigars and brandy. And then along came Harry with his kazoo and a sippy cup. Metaphorically speaking of course.

I can’t imagine how insufferable / insignificant he is in person.

Given the comments I’d have to agree with you metaphor.

I have a lot of retail experience. My wife and I have a retail store in Rocky River.
People have more money. In a town like RR that means more people are out.
Out at restaurants, bars and in turn are walking through our door more frequently.
When people stay home they shop at home. When they’re out they shop out.

Hey someone came out to play with you and told us that people shop at home when home and go into stores when they are out and physically near stores. Good stuff . Insufferable ? You acting as if you and some here are masters of the universe sipping Brandy and puffing on cigars while on the Titanic doesn’t define insufferability ?

Does to me . But I must say that I am glad that you aren’t having this conversation by yourself any longer this morning . Brandy and cigars ? I would love to see how you actually live.

Rocky River is not a shopping destination. We rely heavily on foot traffic which means we need people out at our restaurants and bars. That is what I meant.

Don’t respond to my comments. I have no interest in what you have to say.
