Sears Black Friday 2018: Almost 150 stores closing

 

Sears, once considered one of the biggest retail store, announced it was closing almost 150 stores as it filed for bankruptcy Monday. In the history of departmental stores, Sears was a pioneer. Sears has been a part of the shopping places for all especially during Black Friday.

Because the retail industry has been changing in the past ten yeas, Sears couldn’t cope up with the threats from online stores especially Amazon. The company already has shut down hundreds of outlets in the past years as e-commerce players are getting in demand.

“The Company and certain of its subsidiaries have filed voluntary petitions for relief under Chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York,” a statement by Sears Holdings Corporation said.

Edward S. Lampert, Chairman of Sears Holdings, said the insolvency filing would give the company the “flexibility to strengthen its balance sheet” and enable it to accelerate a strategic transformation.

The 142 stores will be closed in the end of the year in addition to what was announced of the closure of 46 stores by November. Surely, Sears will remain a part of the Black Friday 2018 in which shoppers will be going to get the best deals again.

Sears had received a bost of commitments for $300 million in debtor-in-possession financing and it was negotiating for additional $300 million.

The last time Sears gain profits was way back in 2018. According to analysts, the store needs to make more than $1 billion a year to keep going as its sales are continue to decline. There are still fewer than 900 stores open in the US with under 90,000 employees.

Amazon Black Friday 2018: The company to suffer 5% shipping cost

Amazon remains the biggest online retailer when it comes to Black Friday. Proven in a short time, Amazon has changed the shopping view of millions of consumers. As a matter of fact, Amazon altered the Black Friday tradition which the shoppers tend to stay at home rather than going to stores.

It’s quite a question if Amazon will here to stay as part of a shopper’s primary online option. In one of of the current news development about Amazon, the company’s operating income could be affected at 5% if the U.S. Postal Service proposed hike shipping cost will go into fruition.

According to Barclays analysts,

“Our math …suggests Amazon will have 5% lower retail operating income from this shipping cost inflation, if we assume there are no offsetting factors”.

The USPS suggested increasing the shipping cost of a small flat-rate box to $7.90 from $7.2. Also, the medium flat rate box from $13.65 to $14.35 is included. Moreover, the large flat-rate box from $19.95 could be risen to $18.90.

“Specifically, the USPS shipping rates for small and medium boxes, typically used by e-commerce companies, are proposed to be increased by 10% and 5% respectively,” Barclays analysts led by Ross Sandler wrote. “The price increases for packages suggested by USPS this year are higher than in prior years.”

President Donald Trump specifically had a big concern about the US Postal losing money because it has been the “delivery boy” of Amazon.

“The price increases reflect the best judgment of the Postal Service Governors, who are seeking to establish new rates that will keep the Postal Service competitive, while also providing the Postal Service with much needed revenue,” a USPS spokesperson said.

 

Absolutely, the increase in shipping will impact Amazon’s income. However, will Amazon pass it to the consumers? Will it happen just before the Black Friday week?

Super Typhoon or not, Mangkhut is expected to hit Northern Luzon in the coming days.

At 3 a.m., Mangkhut was located 1,390 kilometers east of Luzon with maximum sustained winds of up to 200 kph and gusts of up to 245 kph. It is forecasted to move west at 15 kph.

Typhoon Mangkut, to be named locally into Ompong once it enters the Philippine Area of Responsibility, has maintained its strength as it travels nearer to the country.

Mangkhut will bring forth strong winds and rains over the provinces of Isabela, Cagayan, Abra, Batanes and Ilocos Norte.

PAGASA also added that storm signal warning advisory may be released as earlay as Thursday in the area of Cagayan Valley.

Mangkhut track

Senior weather forecaster Alczar Aurelio said Mangkhut will likely to make landfall over the Cagayan-Batanes area. Moreover, the current southwest monsoon will be enhanced by Mangkhut that would bring forth rains over Southern Luzon.

Mangkhut is expected to be felt in Northern and parts of Central Luzon on Thursday.

“While it is still far, we urge the public to prepare for this typhoon. Look for safe areas as heavy rains may trigger flooding and landslides. It is also expected to bring strong winds,” Aurelio said.

Because Mangkhut still has to travel in the waters of the Pacific Ocean, it could still intesify into a super typhoon. If the storm will reach a maxumum sustained winds of 220 kph, then this would be a super typhoon, according to PAGASA.

Based on the latest forecast by the US Joint Typhoon Warning Center, Mangkhut is likely to cross the Babuyan Group of Islands on Saturday morning with a strength of 240 kph near the center.

Preparation

The Philippine government started mobilizing for the preparation of the possible impact that this supertyphoon would bring forth.

Office of Civil Defense Director Edgar Posadas said the government has alotted P1.7 billion as a stand-by fund for the areas that will possibly experience bad weather because of the typhoon.

“The DSWD [Department of Social Welfare and Dev’t] as of this time are ready with P1.7 billion worth of standby funds. The DILG [Department of Interior and Local Gov’t] also briefed us on their readiness on information dissemination,” he said.

PAGASA forecasted the eye of the storm would be located at 1,620 km East of Southern Luzon on Tuesday. Mangkhut would be located at 1,115 km East of Virac, Catanduanes on Wednesday night. As it draws closer, the typhoon would be just within 390 km East of Aparri, Cagayan on Friday evening.

“Upon approach to the threatened area (Saturday, early morning), the expected maximum sustained winds is around 205 km/h and gustiness of up to 255 km/h. The typhoon may traverse the Cagayan – Batanes area around Saturday (15 September). Tropical Cyclone Warning Signal (TCWS) # 1 may be raised over the Cagayan Valley Region (Region 2) as early as Thursday (13 September) or 36 hours prior to closest approach (TCWS #1). Widespread moderate to heavy rains directly associated with the Typhoon is possible by Friday (14 September) over Northern Luzon especially over the provinces of Cagayan, Isabela, Apayao, Kalinga, Abra, Ilocos Norte and Batanes.”, according to PAGASA.

Tour de France Overall Standings after stage 9: Richie Porte, Geraint Thomas out

Chris Froome retains the yellow jersey by finishing third in the “Queen Stage” marred by crashes that sent out his teammate Geraint Thomas and friend and rival Richie Porte. Froome sprinted to the finish that was won by Rigoberto Uran followed by Warren Barguil.

In what was an excruciating sad stage for the Tour when Richie Porte suffered one of the most painful crashes in the descent from the last climb when he missed a downhill bend, rolling accross the road and hitting another rider, Dan Martin, before banging on the grassy wall. Porte abandoned the race because of the sustained injuries. Prior to Porte’s crash, Geraint Thomas left the race also after crashing in the descent at the half of the race. Thus, it paves the way for an intense changes in the general classification.

In the final climb, Alberto Contador couldn’t keep up in the Froome’s group as he lost a lot of time. Contador lost his chance of the tour as he is now behind more than five minutes to Froome. Nairo Quintana also was left by the group and trails 2’13”.

Fabio Aru seized the moment when he saw Froome raising his hand. Aru attacked immediately and Froome was left behind because of technical problems with 5km to the last summit. With his teammates, Froome caught up.

Super Tekla bids goodbye to “Wowowin”

After missing for two weeks, stand up comedian super Tekla came out to clear about his status in the Willie Revillame’s popular program “Wowowin.”

In his Facebook post (SuperTeklah Librada), he said, “My journey in wowowin is totally ended!!!?

Tekla reasoned out that there’s no hurt feelings at all about him being out of the program which was his home since September 2016. As a matter of fact, he expressed his gratitude to host Willie as well as the entire program.

“Wala akng hinanakit sa puso ko bagkos lubos akong nagpapasalamat kay kuya wil.sa narating ko at sa chance na binigay nya sakin marami akong natutunan,lalong lalo na inilapit niya ako sa ‘masa’ buong buhay lilingunin ko pambihirang pagkakataon na binigay sa akin ng programang wowowin,” he said.

Tekla started his television career in “Wowowin” when he was one of the contestants and Willie offered him a job. He became a household name because of the spontaniety of cracking jokes in the daily program.

There were rumors earlier that Tekla was allegedly suspended and then fired by Willie for an altercation.

“Willie Revillame and Super Tekla had an argument during the show and the former felt disrespected that’s why he fired the latter. Some says the comedian was only suspended for a certain period of time.”

Whatever happens to Tekla, he has gained millions of fans around the country. He invited his fans to watch “Magpakailanman” this coming Saturday.

With 3.5 million plus views on his Youtube video audition, Super Tekla will find another place.
