Circuit City, based here in Richmond, has done something interesting with the store right up the road from its headquarters, at Gaskins and Broad. The big “outlet plug” that used to adorn the front of the store is gone, and the entire store has been remodeled on the inside and out to look more like the newer store in Short Pump. However, it’s not just the look that’s changed. Take a closer look and you’ll notice a new name- “The City.” Although company executives are tight-lipped about it, this location seems to be a concept design of sorts. It’s big and open, and has a layout similar to that of Best Buy. Not surprising, considering how much market share they, their fiercest competitor, has taken from them in the past decade. The company is overhauling many of it’s operations and restructuring their business on the corporate level as well.
So @axios RVA has a new game where you’re asked to draw #RVA neighborhoods. @ScottsAddition is going to be interesting, because no one realizes boundaries were expanded in 2015, AND #DiamondDistrict just dilutes that notion further. https://www.axios.com/local/richmond/game-do-you-know-your-neighborhood?city=richmond @KarriPeifer @nedoliver
This is inexcusable.
A truly wild moment yesterday from the House Financial Services Committee, where they laugh about the revolving door from Congress to the banks.
I know, right? I think he, Ed Sheeran, and Imagine Dragons (Get Z Nickelback) single-handedly prop-up top 40 radio right now.
Right? It’s like every week they think of a new way to make sure I spend less and less time on the app. Between forced sound on stories and no option to turn off [someone] posted new reels,” I barely find myself using @Instagram anymore. Forcing the UX does not increase usage.
