Retail News

Retail openings can be found from the tiniest boutique to the largest big-box national chain. Customers in smaller stores and fashionable department stores expect individual attention, while customers shopping at the likes of Wal-Mart, Home Depot and Costco expect a clean efficient environment and customer service when they need it. No matter the type of retail outlet the Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that employment of retail salespersons is expected to rise 17% through 2020. Yet many...
Full-time job opportunities are increasing in the retail sector, which is a nice change for job seekers in an industry where hiring temporary workers during peak seasons is the norm. Of course, that doesn't mean that retail employers are lowering their expectations for new hires. In fact, most have used the recent downturn to raise their requirements to boost the quality of the candidates they recruit and hire. Unfortunately, retail is no different than most other industry sectors. Retailers...
As consumer confidence rises amid the economic recovery, more job opportunities are being created in the retail sector, according to the experts who follow the industry. Retail hiring over the 2012 holiday season was the industry’s highest in six years, and retailers are continuing their employment growth through the winter and into the spring, the Associated Press reports. In fact, retail hiring grew strongly in early 2013, with employers adding 24,000 new retail sector jobs in February alone...
The most readily available jobs in retailing are those that pay the least and have limited upward mobility, primarily because they require fewer skills. However, landing one of those jobs can be an invaluable foothold into the industry. Retail outlets often have a hierarchy that provides greater management opportunities and higher pay as you invest more time in the business, and the number of qualified candidates falls. For example, here are average salary and employment estimates from the...
Retail innovation cycles last approximately 20 years. As we take a look at retail history, this cycle becomes self-evident. From the general store to department stores to discount stores and so forth, each variety has their day in the sun as the leading channel for most purchases. Today, we’re lucky enough to be living within two powerful cycles simultaneously. But the fun will soon come to an end. In early December, I was engaged on my annual “slash & grab” Christmas shopping excursion. It...
U.S. employers added 165,000 jobs in April, bringing the official unemployment rate down to 7.5 percent. The retail trade accounted for 29,000 new jobs. Employment has grown by 1.6 percent across the country over the past year, a gain of more than 2 million jobs after seasonal adjustments, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Private-sector job growth alone has been even stronger, up nearly 2 percent. The industries gaining the most jobs were professional and business services, food...
An expected post-Easter decline in shopper activity was compounded by unseasonably cold weather last month. Retail foot traffic decreased 10.1 percent in April compared to March 2013, deviating from previous positive month-over-month retail traffic trends. Foot traffic for April 2013 decreased 0.4 percent compared to the same month in 2012. Easter — and all the shopping that goes with it — often falls in the month of April. This year, however, the holiday was in March. Considering the lack of...
Lower-priced gas allowed Americans to step up their spending at retailers in April, buying cars, clothes, electronics and appliances. The rebound from a weak March suggests consumers remain resilient in the face of higher taxes and could continue to drive economic growth this spring. Retail sales edged up 0.1 percent in April, the Commerce Department said Monday. That's an improvement from a 0.5 percent decline in March, the largest drop in nine months. The April gain was stronger when taking...
More Americans hunted for jobs in May, and more companies filled them - signs of confidence and resilience for the slow-healing U.S. economy. Industries that rely directly on consumer spending hired at a healthy pace - a sign of confidence that consumers will keep spending. Retailers added 28,000 jobs. The retail sector has added new hires for three straight months, and 12 of the last 13 months dating back. Improved retail hiring coincides with reports from the Commerce Dept. that consumer...
Among the most reliable measurements of our economic health is consumer spending. After all, a growing labor force means more money being made and thus, more money being spent. New U.S. Census Bureau estimates show that both business spending and consumer confidence are at five-year highs. More shoppers mean more revenue for retailers, which in turn means the need for more retail workers. “Retail really took a big hit when the economy went down during the recession," says Gregg Bedol, managing...
