Anne D'Innocenzio Associated Press Published 6:13 PM EST Nov 15, 2018 New York – Walmart may be bruised by Amazon, but it’s learning how to fight back. The world’s largest retailer delivered strong third-quarter results Thursday, extending a streak of sales growth into its 11th straight quarter that was helped by services such as online grocery pickup. It also raised profit expectations for the year heading into the holiday shopping season. Like other retailers, Walmart is benefiting from a strong job market and rising consumer confidence. But retailers are also benefiting from the misfortunes of others. Toys R Us and Bon-Ton Stores have gone out of business, while the Sears bankruptcy is creating more opportunities to grab sales. J.C. Penney, still floundering, on Thursday withdrew profit guidance and lowered its sales expectations for the year. Walmart posted strong sales across a wide range of products from toys and back-to-school items to fresh food. That … [Read more...] about Walmart sales continue rise heading into holiday season

Toy store chain Toys R Us is planning to sell or close all 800 of its U.S. stores, affecting as many as 33,000 jobs as the company winds down its operations after seven decades, according to a source familiar with the matter.The news comes six months after the retailer filed for bankruptcy. The company has struggled to pay down nearly $8 billion in debt - much of it dating back to a 2005 leveraged buyout - and has had trouble finding a buyer. There were reports earlier this week that Toys R Us had stopped paying its suppliers, which include the country's largest toy makers. On Wednesday, the company announced it would close all 100 of its U.K. stores.

Tweet TweetThe Nissan Juke-R is one of the rare projects of the automotive industry. A group of enthusiasts at Nissan UK built it for themselves to try and us to enjoy. As Autoblog reports however, the new Juke-R project isn’t to everybody’s liking, particularly the higher-up management of Nissan Japan. The home base of Nissan does not approve. It’s not because the Nissan Juke-R isn’t a likeable car but because there’s too much of an association with the Nissan GTR. The Juke on the other hand is a cheap crossover. It may have received a funky design and some snazzy advertising but there’s not a big gap between it and a cheap hatchback. Fearing for certain marketing and image problems, Nissan Japan had a bit of an argument with their UK subsidiary about the Nissan Juke-R. Business-wise, the folks in Japan are completely right, however us enthusiasts almost unanimously agree on a different story. Thanks to the Juke-R and its crazy engineers the regular … [Read more...] about Nissan Juke-R not a big hit with the management
The road jinks and heaves over the rolling hills, a gray ribbon carelessly tossed upon a rumpled green-brown sward. Grazing sheep bow their heads in the bracing wind. God-rays stream through occasional breaks in the ominous cloud cover. Rain threatens. We’re deep in hot hatch country, in one of the best hot hatches in the world—the 2018 Honda Civic Type R.We’ve made no secret of our love for this car, especially now that Honda finally deemed it available for sale in America. From a two liter, four-cylinder turbocharged engine, 306 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque rush forth. Sixty mph arrives in just over five seconds, carrying a top speed of almost 170mph. Its Nürburgring Nordschliefe lap time makes older Porsche 911s look… slow.This little Gundam hot hatch—with its preposterous array of wings and vents, edges and angles—is perhaps the most impressive, most rounded high-performance Honda since the original NSX. And it costs about as much as a … [Read more...] about Homeward Bound in the Honda Civic Type R
