Article | March 22, 2020

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton today issued a stern warning to retail suppliers, including those who supply grocery stores and pharmacies, that state law strictly prohibits price gouging in the wake of a declared disaster. Price gouging laws apply to any person or entity selling necessities at an exorbitant or excessive price after a disaster has been declared by the Governor or President. This prohibition includes those who supply retailers. Under the Texas Deceptive Trade Practices Act, any price-gougers may be required to reimburse consumers and may be held liable for civil penalties of up to $10,000 per violation with an additional penalty of up to $250,000 if the affected consumers are elderly.

what impact will it have on convenience stores?

Article | March 16, 2020

The Internet of Things (IoT) is not an elegant phrase, but for independent retailers, it is an important one. It refers the way in which computing devices embedded in everyday objects can communicate with each other. In shops, this could mean anything from shelf-edge labels to fridges, to vending machines to security cameras. For cameras, the IoT provides the connections necessary to record, analyse and identify known thieves who might enter your shop. Nick Fisher, chief executive of Facewatch, has high hopes the system could help his company become a major benefit to retailers of all sizes. He says: “Convenience stores are a significant market for us. They have high footfall, a problem with theft and there are not enough police to help stop it.”

Last July, a small group representing the giants of the tech industry gathered in the seat of US government, Washington DC. They probably didn’t want to be there. Congress had summoned their employers Apple, Facebook, Google, and Amazon to answer questions about the command they hold over the markets they operate in. On Amazon’s behalf, associate general counsel Nate Sutton spoke in defense of his employer’s role in US retail. Throughout, he argued that Amazon isn’t so powerful as to be able to control prices and stifle competition. Amazon, he pointed out, makes up less than 1% of retail globally. In the US, it accounts for around 4% of retail. In fact, Walmart is much larger than Amazon, he said. In terms of sales, Sutton is right. Walmart reported $510 billion in total sales across its US and international segments in the 2019 fiscal year, versus Amazon’s $233 billion in roughly the same period.
