Streetfighter Selling for Sales Professionals

    macysNow, with all due respect to the employees and families affected,
    the headline-grabbing news that MACY’S IS SHUTTERING STORES!” (reporters like the word shuttering for some reason) due to “one of weakest holiday seasons in years” is yet another example of how we’re bombarded with mind-numbing ‘doom ‘n’ gloom’ on a daily basis.

    I like Macy’s and their proud history. It’s also filled with numerous mergers and aquisitions, especially during the last 20 years, sometimes resulting in self-competition!).

    The January 8th announcement thyat they plan to close eleven of their stores is an adjustment, not an earthquake. 11 closings represents just over 1% of their stores, and, coming off a holiday season that WAS one of the lowest in recent history, this action is one we’ve seen before, and will always see in a free enterprise environment.

    Our economy is going through a challenging time, no doubt. But look deeper into some of these doom ‘n’ gloom stories before they take their toll on you or your customers.
