February 18, 2013 From ROI Report
For this installment of the Retailer Web Performance Report Card, I looked specifically at response times and availability for big-box retailers Wal-Mart and Home Depot, as well as wholesale warehouse giant Costco.

Toys"R"Us CEO Resigns After Holiday Sales Decline
February 14, 2013 From Bloomberg
Toys“R”Us Chief Executive Officer Gerald Storch will step down following a drop in holiday sales at the world’s largest toy-store chain. Storch, 56, joined the company in 2006 after Bain Capital Partners LLC, KKR & Co. and Vornado Realty Trust purchased Toys"R"Us for $6.6 billion. He will remain chairman and stay on as CEO during a search for his replacement, the Wayne, N.J.-based company said today in a statement. While Storch improved profitability, the chain has struggled to boost sales amid competition from Amazon.com and discount retailers Wal-Mart and Target.
