“I think the bottom line here is the Canadian consumer is still very much alive and well,” BMO chief economist Doug Porter said of the retail sales figures. “We’re seeing very strong numbers out of places like Ontario and B.C.—pretty much anywhere but the Prairies reported very strong retail sales activity.”

One retail sales number really jumped out at him: the 9.2% year-over-year increase in Ontario. He believes it was “way stronger” than anyone would have anticipated and may have been partly a result of more Canadians spending their cash at home, rather than absorbing the exchange rate hit of the low loonie across the border. Read More...

Caplansky told our friends at Marketing that the most common feedback the three delis receive from customers is to open one in their communities.

“People have led us to the idea that Canada wants this—that people want to be able to experience an authentic, traditional Jewish deli in their community,” he said. On top of that, “burgers have been done, fried chicken has been done, subs have been done, Middle Eastern has been done… and no one has ever really done a great deli beyond a small, regional basis.”

Joe Jackman, CEO of Jackman Reinvents, which has a financial stake in Caplansky’s, said the goal is to bring deli to the masses in a more modern, relevant way. Read More...

Are You Giving Your Marketing Head Enough Respect?

Chief marketing officers and CEOs share one all-consuming purpose: growth. Everyone else at that table is at least partly concerned with what it will cost, how to manage it or how to share its spoils. But no executive function will ever have more influence on CEOs’ legacy than marketing. If they don’t have CMOs sitting at their right hands, they’d better be ready to do the job themselves. And have the thick skin to go with it. Read More...

Beyond layout and color scheme, there are a lot of features that are paramount to successful small-business websites. Some are obvious -- such as an easy-to-remember domain name, a logo and contact information -- and others are more subtle, like an online chat button or specific pattern for the content on the site’s inner pages. Read More...
