Zola called Selfridges a ´great cathedral of shopping´, and its high priest was Harry Gordon Selfridge, father of modern retailing, philanderer, gamble dandy and the greatest showman the consumer world has ever known. The charismatic Selfridge had created nothing less than a lavish ´theatre of retail´.

High Heels und Hühnerfüße
€ 14.80 *

Egal ob als kurzer Stop-over oder als temporäre Heimat für Expats: Singapur fasziniert, zumal, wenn man auch einen Blick hinter die Spiegelfassaden der Shoppingmalls wirft. Diese informative und unterhaltsame Gebrauchsanweisung liefert Wissenswertes, weniger zu touristischen Highlights, als zum kuriosen Alltag der Singapurer zwischen Tradition und Moderne, Ahnenkult und Fortschrittsglauben, Konsumrausch und Spiritualität - zu einer Nation, die es dank der eisernen Hand ihrer Regierung, viersprachiger Verbotsschilder und Mückenpolizei in kürzester Zeit von einem Malaria-Sumpf zu einem der fortschrittlichsten Länder der Welt gebracht hat. Lernen Sie die Mentalität von Singapurern und Expats verstehen, die die Autorin mit ihrem Insider-Wissen aus zwei Jahren persönlicher Erfahrung augenzwinkernd analysiert. Begegnen Sie einer so vielfältigen wie gegensätzlichen Metropole, in deren Hawker Centern Asiatinnen in straßbesetzten High Heels an Hühnerfüßen knabbern, um ihren Teint aufzufrischen. Tauchen Sie ein in eine Stadt, in der die Menschen innerhalb weniger Wochen das muslimische Zuckerfest, Weihnachten, das hinduistische Thaipusam und Chinese New Year feiern, sieben Tage die Woche rund um die Uhr shoppen, aber Kaugummi nur gegen Vorlage des amtlichen Lichtbildausweises erhältlich ist. Erfahren Sie, wie die Singapurer hungrige Geister verwöhnen, warum ein Nummernschild mit den Zahlen 2828 so begehrt ist, und was man hier mit einem Bikini aus Papier anfängt. This guide is a fact-based, tongue-in-cheek introduction to Singapore and its people from a European, German, personal point of view. It sheds a light on the mentality of Singaporeans - micro-managed and torn between shopping malls and superstition - as well as expats, just one species of many in this multi-ethnic metropolis, which is certainly one of the most diverse spots on this planet.

Retail Therapy (eBook, ePUB)
€ 13.95 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Almost weekly, the news is full of stories about disappearing retail chains. From House of Fraser and BHS to Toys´R´Us and Sears, recognised names are vanishing overnight - as such large organizations disappear, so the malls, shopping centres, high streets and main streets become emptier and less appealing to visit. The retail sector is hugely important in terms of job numbers: in the US, it employs around 30 million people (directly and indirectly); in the UK, around 10 million. As such, anything that jeopardises the retail sector will have a deep and lasting impact on millions of lives, as well as on public policy. While many blame the ´Amazon effect´, this is an oversimplification. Deeper forces are at work that are changing people´s relationships with brands, the balance of power between producers and consumers, and the whole nature of the supply chain that has existed since the industrial revolution. Retail Therapy offers a comprehensive analysis of these forces and their impact on the world of retailing. More importantly, it presents a cogent analysis of the longer term trends that are shaping retailing, and outlines a clear road map for sustainable success in the future.

Customers continuously show higher demand for online shopping which drives the apparent growth of global internet commerce. As Internet shopping gradually moves from innovation to a standard way of shopping, the quality of the websites will play an essential role in the differentiation of the sites. High-quality sites are capable of attracting more customers than the competing sites of poor quality since the quality built a sustainable competitive advantage. Internet shopping sites are virtual stores where all operations and its relevant activities take place in online cyberspace. The literature on the quality of traditional retail stores confirmed that consumers use the quality of the store as an indication of the quality of products from stores. Also, when consumers are satisfied with a high-quality website, they inspire powerful and positive word-of-mouth for the site. Various measuring instruments have been developed with the objective of evaluating the quality of websites. This study used the NetQual measurement scale (Bresslloes, 2006) as an instrument for measuring the quality of the websites and as a result, affect the user´s electronic loyalty.

Indien

Die Vielfältigkeit Indiens ist fast schon ein Klischee. Ein Land der Widersprüche, das changiert zwischen Kastenwesen und Demokratie, zwischen Götterglaube und High-Tech, blanker Armut und neuer Wirtschaftskraft mit glitzernden Shopping-Malls. Bernard Imhasly lebt seit Jahrzehnten in Indien und kann wie kaum ein Zweiter vom Subkontinent erzählen, etwa, indem er von der indischen ´´Hochzeitsindustrie´´ mit einem Jahresumsatz von circa 40 Milliarden US-Dollar berichtet oder von der nicht zu unterschätzenden Rolle der indischen Mythologie in der aktuellen Politik.

Fashion reporter and stylish sleuth Lacey Smithsonian returns in her second Crime of Fashion Mystery, as high crimes and haute couture heat up Washington, D.C.: ´´The City Fashion Forgot.´´ Lacey tangles with a fabric of deceit and death when high fashion meets low dealings in unfashionable Washington. A missing intern's scandalous secret, a New York fashion dynasty's closetful of skeletons, a young fashion designer's unsolved disappearance in the 1940s, and a long-lost scrap of black market silk from World War Two: It's a pattern custom-tailored for murder. And what on earth does her beloved Aunt Mimi's old steamer trunk, full of memories, fashion memorabilia, and long-forgotten dress patterns have to do with that well-dressed body in the swamp? Lacey races to unravel the truth behind two disappearances sixty years apart -- and to unmask the killer behind a dress to die for. Lacey's Fashion Bite of the Day: ´´Uh oh! Shopping under the influence of temptation? Beware of chocolate highs, bogus bargains, frivolous friends, and impossible fantasies. Or are you really ready to jet off to Spain just because that slinky little dress whispers, 'Barcelona'?´´
