@stylemafia seems to have pulled a fast one on the industry. With their repackaged fast fashion masquerading as a legit contemporary brand, they somehow managed to rack up some respectable wholesale accounts.   @bloomingdales, @shopbop, @freepeople... don’t you know better than to buy into this? Judging by your customer reviews, it might be worth it to reconsider your partnership 👀 #stylemafia #cuteviolence #fashioncosanostra #gucci #valentino #vltn #balenciaga #demnagvasalia #ellery #celine #lol #johannaortiz #johannaortiztop #jacquemus #zimmermann #juliaroberts #marieclaire #copycat #fastfashion #freepeople #retail #retailisdead #retailapocalypse #ruffles #rufflebrand #coffinlining #wiwt #copycat #knockoff #ootd #dietprada
“If your business is not on the Internet, your business will soon be out of business.” - Bill Gates. If you’re a retail store worker and want to save your future before if all comes crumbling away from you without your control - thanks to the way society is SO quickly moving to an online shopping world.. (Think of all the high street stores closing at the moment!! ToysRus is the most recent hit 👀 Who’s to say you won’t be next?) Then please message me - from one retail worker to another, Ive found a way to survive the downfall of it all x
Amazons market share is more than most of those (minus Walmart) all together in their hey day. Also while the rest have lost $70b in market share, Amazon has added four times that amount. Digital is real. - I stole this image off of @maheshsadar IG post. - - #retailproblems #retailapocalypse #retail #amazon #marketshare #digital
I still admire and respect☝️. Can’t say the same for today’s leaders. —————————————————-Join the fashion revolution @ MeSpoke.com #retaildesign #retailproblems #retail #brands #loyalty #jeffbezos #marcbenioff #nordstrom #nordstromrack #neimanmarcus #macys #tjmaxx #aws #awsome #forbes #founder #innovativedesign #innovation #siliconvalley #salesforce #fortune #technology #data #retailapocalypse #mespoke
A relic of what once was “Your Favorite Store”
A sign of the times. Maines first mall was a virtual ghost town with hardly any stores left. No Santa, no news cameras, and no craft fairs. Thats what was going on the last time I Christmas shopped there. #airportmall #bangor #maine #defunctmall #dyingmalls #dyingretail #lonelymall #dyingmallsofamerica #retailapocalypse
As we stare blindly toward the looming retail apocalypse, I'm spending my Saturday driving around my hometown photographing lively malls, dead malls, demalled malls, lifestyle centers, etc. #retailapocalypse #shoppingmalls #retail #grandrapidsmichigan

Regranned from *freedom_faction - Did you know that the number of retail store closings in 2017 has already tripled the number from all of 2016? Last year, a total of 2,056 store locations were closed down, but this year more than 6,700 stores have been shut down so far. That absolutely shatters the all-time record for store closings in a single year, and yet nobody seems that concerned about it. In 2008, an all-time record 6,163 retail stores were shuttered, and we have already surpassed that mark by a very wide margin. We are facing an unprecedented #retailapocalypse, and as you will see below, the number of retail store closings is actually supposed to be much higher next year. Whenever the #mainstreammedia reports on the retail apocalypse, they always try to put a positive spin on the story by blaming the growth of #Amazon and other online retailers. And without a doubt that has had an impact, but at this point, online shopping still accounts for less than 10 percent of total U.S. retail sales. Look, Amazon didn’t just show up to the party. They have been around for many, many years and while it is true that they are growing, they still only account for a very small sliver of the overall retail pie. So those that would like to explain away this retail apocalypse need to come up with a better explanation. As I noted in the headline, there are 20 different major retail chains that have closed at least 50 stores so far this year. If the U.S. economy was really doing well, then why are all of these major retailers closing down locations? Of course, the truth is that the economy is not doing well. The U.S. economy has not grown by at least 3 percent in a single year since the middle of the Bush administration, and it isn’t going to happen this year either. Overall, the U.S. economy has grown by an average of just 1.33 percent over the last 10 years, and meanwhile, U.S. stock prices are up about 250 percent since the end of the last recession. The stock market has become completely and utterly disconnected from economic reality, and yet many #Americans still believe that it is an accurate barometer of the health of the economy.

Thank You for Shopping, or, Death by Retail - Miami, 2013 - "You have meddled with the primal forces of nature, Mr. Beale, and I won't have it! Is that clear? You think you've merely stopped a business deal. That is not the case! The Arabs have taken billions of dollars out of this country, and now they must put it back! It is ebb and flow, tidal gravity! It is ecological balance! You are an old man who thinks in terms of nations and peoples. There are no nations. There are no peoples. There are no Russians. There are no Arabs. There are no third worlds. There is no West. There is only one holistic system of systems, one vast and immane, interwoven, interacting, multivariate, multinational dominion of dollars. Petro-dollars, electro-dollars, multi-dollars, reichmarks, rins, rubles, pounds, and shekels. It is the international system of currency which determines the totality of life on this planet. That is the natural order of things today. That is the atomic and subatomic and galactic structure of things today! And YOU have meddled with the primal forces of nature, and YOU... WILL... ATONE! Am I getting through to you, Mr. Beale? You get up on your little twenty-one inch screen and howl about America and democracy. There is no America. There is no democracy. There is only IBM, and ITT, and AT&T, and DuPont, Dow, Union Carbide, and Exxon. Those are the nations of the world today. What do you think the Russians talk about in their councils of state, Karl Marx? They get out their linear programming charts, statistical decision theories, minimax solutions, and compute the price-cost probabilities of their transactions and investments, just like we do. We no longer live in a world of nations and ideologies, Mr. Beale. The world is a college of corporations, inexorably determined by the immutable bylaws of business. The world is a business, Mr. Beale. It has been since man crawled out of the slime. And our children will live, Mr. Beale, to see that... perfect world... in which there's no war or famine, oppression or brutality. One vast and ecumenical holding company, for whom all men will work to serve a common profit, in which all men will hold a share of stock."
