    University of Florida students who said they supported changing the name Black Friday because of possible racial connotations - with one even saying it 'sounded offensive' - changed their minds after they were told it has nothing to do with race.   Students at the Gainesville campus were asked by a student reporter with Campus Reform whether they supported renaming Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving that is seen as a commercially driven day of consumerism. Their responses were recorded on video.  Black Friday was named in honor of retailers earning a profit and going 'into the black' on the day after Thanksgiving after a year of loss and being 'in the red.'  Ophelie Jacobson asks students if they will be participating in Black Friday. Most students said they would not, noting its deep-rooted connections to capitalism and consumerism.  Jacobson went out to see if students were willing to change the name and how far they would take cancel culture.   The survey by Campus Reform was formed in response to the Chicago Tribune's article questioning whether 'Black Friday should be renamed so...
    Two unidentified individuals wearing hooded jackets were caught on amateur video during a brazen ‘smash-and-grab’ spree on cars in the San Francisco Bay Area. Video posted to social media on Wednesday shows the two thieves driving along streets in residential areas of San Francisco and Oakland. They emerge from their Audi A6 sedan and smash the windows of parked cars nearby. The two are then seen stealing bags and items that were left in the vehicles. San Francisco has been hit hard by a spate of what officials are calling organized car break-ins. Between May 2020 and May 2021, there was a 753 percent increase in the car break-ins in the city's Central District, according to The San Francisco Chronicle. The Central District includes several of the city's most popular tourist hotspots, including Fisherman's Wharf and Chinatown. Visitors from out of town are warned not to keep their belongings in the car for fear it will be stolen.  Mayor London Breed on Tuesday announced that the city would offer rewards of up to $100,000 to anyone with information leading to...
    Imagine if President Trump had won the 2020 election, as delusional Don continues to preposterously claim he did to anyone dumb enough to believe it? Then imagine what the media reaction would be to America, the world's supposedly most powerful nation, currently grinding to a shuddering halt with a vast flotilla of cargo ships stuck off the Californian coast, and a chronic shortage of food-delivery drivers causing empty shelves to appear right across the country? Actually - none of us need imagine what the reaction would be. Trump would rightly be excoriated for failing on perhaps the single most important duty of a US President - ensuring the American people can get food and essential provisions. I'd be leading the attack myself, because you don't need to have Nostradamus level foresight to have predicted that as the world finally begins to crawl out of the coronavirus pandemic, the economy would inevitably surge back from the financial abyss and so would demand for supplies. But instead, the liberal-dominated mainstream media once again refuses to treat President Biden in the same brutally...

    New York (CNN Business)Top US retail and food chains have updated their mask policies since the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said this week that fully vaccinated people should wear masks indoors in areas with substantial Covid-19 transmission.That designation includes more than two-thirds of US counties. The CDC changed its guidance in response to the rising spread of the new, highly transmissible Delta variant and low vaccination rates in many areas of the country.Mask policies have challenged stores throughout the pandemic and led to disputes between opponents of masks and frontline workers trying to enforce safety measures. Most large chains had removed face covering requirements for vaccinated shoppers in May, following CDC guidance at the time easing mask-wearing for people vaccinated. Stores have continued to ask unvaccinated shoppers to wear masks.Here are the updated mask rules at some of the biggest stores in America:WalmartRead MoreIn counties with substantial or high risk of transmission and where there are state or local mask mandates, Walmart workers will be required to wear masks inside its facilities, including stores, Sam's Club locations,...
    Kroger and Walmart — two of the nation's biggest retailing chains — are changing their mask policies as the nation contends with less-vaccinated regions getting hit by high infection rates due to the Delta variant. Kroger is now "strongly" encouraging all individuals, including those who are vaccinated, to wear a mask when in its stores and facilities, the Cincinnati, Ohio-based supermarket operator said Friday, citing updated recommendations from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Previously, Kroger had required unvaccinated employees wear masks and requested that unvaccinated shoppers do the same.  "We will continue to abide by all state and local mandates and encourage all Americans to get vaccinated, including our associates," the company said in an emailed statement. Kroger operates nearly 2,800 stores in 35 states. Bentonville, Arkansas-based Walmart said it will require all its workers —including vaccinated ones —to wear masks in areas with high infection rates of COVID-19. It is also encouraging customers to wear masks in stores in areas with high infection rates from the Delta variant of the coronavirus, and will be adding back signs at...
    (CNN)Of all the aspects of normality Americans missed throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, physical touch has been a common theme. The touch associated with browsing at a record store is no exception -- clicking a download button can't match the feeling of walking into a shop with other music fans, flipping through album covers and holding a new disc.Vinyl may not be the first thing that comes to mind when thinking about the impacts of the pandemic, but for some business owners, it's everything. This Saturday, the second of two Record Store Days being held this year, offers a sign of hope for independent businesses trying to recover from some of the darkest days they have seen.What is Record Store Day? Record Store Day is a global event to "celebrate and spread the word about the unique culture surrounding nearly 1,400 independently owned record stores in the US and thousands of similar stores internationally," according to organizers.The first Record Store Day was on April 19, 2008, and has since been a single day devoted to exclusive vinyl releases only available at...
    SAN JOSE — As the Bay Area snaps back to life with almost all pandemic restrictions now in the rearview mirror, residents can’t seem to shake off the mask-wearing habit. When the state fully reopened last Tuesday, allowing vaccinated people to go out to restaurants, gyms, movie theaters and bowling alleys without face coverings for the first time in more than a year, many who viewed masks as a necessary evil greeted the news with a welcome sigh of relief. But for others, masks have become a social norm and habit that will be hard to kick, as evidenced inside Bay Area grocery stores teeming with shoppers who continue to hide their noses and mouths behind face coverings while pushing their sanitized carts down the aisles. Mask use continues to decline rapidly and mobility is nearly back to pre-COVID-19 baseline levels. 6/8 pic.twitter.com/EMBnylI72X — Ali H.

    Americans are leaving their homes more and easing up on social distancing, following the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) relaxing guidelines for vaccinated Americans.  A new Gallup poll found that more ore people are visiting stores and restaurants than at any time since spring 2020. Still, the vast majority of Americans report still wearing masks outside their homes, and significant minorities are still avoiding crowds and public spaces. The poll shows the country is inching 'back to normal' in the wake of vaccinations and relaxed CDC guidance, while some Americans remain cautious.

    A California couple knows all too well what it's like to struggle with money with a new baby at home — so now that they're financially secure, they're helping others who may be having a tough time paying the bills. Krystal and Patrick Duhaney recently visited several Target stores in Southern California, where they hid $1,000 worth of cash inside baby products like diapers and formula.

    CVS Health is trying to incentivize more Americans to get COVID-19 vaccines by offering tickets, cash and vacations to those who get jabbed in their stores.  The pharmacy announced their #OneStepCloser campaign on Thursday, and anyone who has gotten their shots at a CVS location, or will before July 1, is eligible to enter. Winners can receive 1,000 potential prizes including tickets to the Super bowl, trips to Miami and the Bahamas, stays in Wyndham hotels, a seven-day cruise on Norwegian Cruise Line and $5,000 in cash prizes. The move comes as demand for the vaccine has stagnated in recent weeks, falling 50 percent since the start of May. States such as Ohio, Maryland, New York and Oregon have announced similar sweepstakes giveaways for state residents who get vaccinated.  Even private companies have offered incentives to those who get vaccinated, like Krispy Kreme, which is offering a free donut everyday to anyone who has received the vaccine through the end of the year.

    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — It’s the latest in shortages partly blamed on the ongoing COVID pandemic. A lack of glass and other materials is leaving some retailers stressed to survive the summer season.

    Several dozen people who were arrested for breaking the local curfew during last spring’s Black Lives Matter protests and riots have sued Los Angeles County, alleging their First Amendment rights were violated, calling the arrests a “tool of oppression.” The Los Angeles Times reported Monday: The lawsuit alleges a slate of violations of the protesters’ constitutional and civil rights, assault and battery, false imprisonment, negligence and the intentional infliction of emotional distress, and calls the curfew a “tool of oppression” used by government actors to suppress the truth and shore up false narratives about American policing. “Its purpose was to create a lasting chilling effect on the lawful exercise of speech, stopping individuals from participation in peaceful assembly,” the plaintiffs claim in the lawsuit, filed in Los Angeles Superior Court last week. “Under the guise of action to stop looting, mass arrests were made of people committing no crime but speaking truth to power.” … The latest lawsuit alleges the mistreatment occurred across the region, not only in Los Angeles but in unincorporated parts of the county and in Santa Monica...

    January 22, 2021 | 4:25 pm Around the world, various supermarket chains and pharmacies have raised their hands to apply vaccines against COVID-19, justifying in their infrastructure network the possibility of increasing the number of people who have received the dose. Walmart said it is preparing to offer COVID-19 vaccines in seven more states, as well as Chicago and Puerto Rico, this week and next, expanding beyond the two states where its pharmacists are offering vaccines. The chain will begin providing vaccines in Georgia, Indiana, Louisiana, Maryland, New Jersey, South Carolina and Texas, as well as Chicago and Puerto Rico and is already vaccinating healthcare workers in New Mexico and Arkansas.

    A shopper looks through clothes on her iPad device.Source: Twenty/20 Shoppers didn't go to stores last year to buy new clothes. They stayed at home and surfed the web for sweat pants and pajama sets. And as those new purchasing habits stick, few apparel retailers stand to gain market share, leading to continued store closures and bankruptcies. Sales of apparel and footwear online increased 27.2% to $121.5 billion in 2020, according to an analysis released Thursday by Coresight Research. As that happened, the total market for clothes and shoes in the U.S. shrunk roughly 12.1%, it said, as Americans have been purchasing fewer items for their wardrobes during the Covid pandemic. Coresight expects online apparel and footwear sales to either remain flat or grow low-single digits in 2021, as the total apparel market rebounds slightly, climbing around 7%. Growth will be fueled, in part, by people returning to stores, albeit not at precrisis levels. Coresight Chief Executive Deborah Weinswig said she expects many consumers are going to keep their new online shopping habits. Coresight is calling for mid-single digit growth...

    Chicago (CNN)Rochelle Sykes worries that her west side Chicago neighborhood will be left out when the Covid-19 vaccine becomes widely available next year.The community, Sykes said, has no pharmacies or grocery stores within walking distance. And many of her neighbors don't own cars and suffer serious health conditions such as obesity and diabetes. "If they're going to roll out a vaccine and they're going to roll it out to grocery stores and pharmacies, I see a problem," Sykes said. "Is it going to be free? That's one question. And how are they (residents) going to get there to get it?"Chicago is among the cities across the country that could face roadblocks to vaccine access due to a lack of major pharmacy and grocery chains in their poorest Black and brown neighborhoods. Public health experts identify these communities as "pharmacy deserts" -- areas where a substantial number of residents have limited access to retail or independent pharmacies. The problem is largely found in areas with low income residents who have barriers to transportation. Civil rights leaders and health advocates fear the...
    The Big Apple saw a record one in seven nationally recognized chain-store branches close their doors this year as the pandemic sent consumers scurrying for cover, according to a new report. Some 1,132 chain stores — including 70 Duane Reades, 54 Starbucks and 22 Papyruses — have waved the white flag over the past 12 months, according to the Center for an Urban Future’s annual “State of the Chains” report, set to be ­released Wednesday. The 14.2 percent decline shatters all previous records reported by the nonprofit agency since it began tracking the data 13 years ago. Last year, just 3.7 percent of all chain outlets closed, up from 0.3 percent in 2018. “If the national chains are scaling back like this, I have to imagine it’s twice as bad for mom-and-pop stores, who don’t have the same ability to weather a storm or get access to ­financing,” said the center’s executive director, Jonathan Bowles. Manhattan absorbed the deepest cuts with 546 chain closures — ­almost half of the city total — due to the borough’s dependence on office...

    New York (CNN Business)In the fight against Covid-19, the US government is enlisting pharmacies to administer vaccines to hundreds of millions of Americans — an endeavor with unprecedented scale that presents a host of challenges for companies big and small across the United States.Although some companies are ready to store and administer the Covid-19 vaccine, others aren't.Several companies are working on vaccines, each with its own particular storage and logistical challenges, and this is new territory for pharmacies, particularly when it comes to storing the Pfizer vaccine, which requires ultra-cold freezers. Drug stores, grocery stores and retailers are sorting through logistics, making space for the vaccines and buying special freezers in preparation.Cold storageVaccines from some of the companies — such as AstraZeneca (AZN) and Moderna (MRNA) — only require standard refrigeration, to which many pharmacies already have access. But pharmacies must have ultra-cold storage units if they store and administer the Pfizer (PFE) vaccine that requires an environment of -70°C.Read MoreThe special storage requirements of the Pfizer vaccine notwithstanding, grocery stores with pharmacies could have a leg up over traditional...

She’s worked the day after Thanksgiving at a mall shoe store in Los Angeles the last three years, spending her shift running back and forth, hauling sneakers from the stockroom to the waiting feet of customers — and trying to keep her cool when someone inevitably yells at her for disappearing too long. For retail workers, Black Friday is, as Hernandez puts it, the “most dreaded day of the year.” But this year, the day they hate has also become one they fear. With coronavirus infections rising across much of the United States, what is historically one of America’s busiest shopping days brings real risk. Some regions have established occupancy restrictions, including California, where the average number of new coronavirus cases has tripled in the last month alone.

With the virus infecting more Californians every day than at any previous point...

    March and April weren’t great months for Chad Moore. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, all of Colorado’s restaurants and bars were ordered to close their doors on St. Patrick’s Day, with in-house service forbidden and only to-go and delivery allowed. That was particularly tough on Moore and Jordan Fink, who own Woods Boss Brewing. Not only had they built their three-year-old brewery’s reputation on community get-togethers and live events in a gorgeous taproom, but their only means of selling beer to go was with Crowlers, 32-ounce aluminum vessels that are labor-intensive to fill. With no on-site customers and no way to get their beer out the door in large-enough quantities to make ends meet, the public-health crisis looked like it could put them out of business. But in May the clouds cleared a bit. The brewery began working with a mobile canning company to package its best-selling beers, which it could then sell in greater quantities, not just from the taproom, but to liquor stores, which had remained open. Then in June, the brewery — which was now allowed to...
