    Locals fight to keep warehouses out of their neighborhoods

    Exactly. Why do you think Amazon bought Whole Foods? It wasn't to get into the organic grocery industry. It was WF's real estate and supply chain logistics that put Amazon delivery as close as possible to their customers.

    Should retail fear or embrace organized labor’s comeback?

    Let's flip it the other way. Management will have to decide that it costs less to have a union than it does to fight it. Having a union will mean paying higher wages and benefits, and less flexibility. That is a cost. It will provide savings in terms of far less employee turnover and a smaller HR function because of fewer points of contact. Everything in between is up to the company to manage skillfully.

    Should retailers boycott the Outdoor Retailer show’s return to Utah?

    I wouldn't call $110 million "a drop in the bucket" for a major metro area. Neither for all the employees and vendors who earn a share of that money, along with all the follow-on multiplier effects.

    Have men become the primary grocery shoppers in America?

    Yes! My husband buys a lot of impulse items and cool packaging.

    Have men become the primary grocery shoppers in America?

    I would also add that men are more likely to overstate their contribution to tasks like grocery shopping. My husband still marvels that I notice when we are running low on staples and think to pick up replenishments. He waits until we are fresh out then, bless his heart, might remember to go out and "slay" (his word) some groceries.
