Fresh & Easy is contemplating U.S. market exit

The world’s third largest retailor and the largest grocer in the United Kingdom, Tesco Plc. recently announced that after struggling for five years since it started the Fresh & Easy unit in the West coast of the U.S., it is evaluating its options to sale, close, or to form a partnership with another.  The 200-store strong chain employ 5,000, started in 2007, and are spread mainly in urban areas of the Southern California and Nevada.  Originally it planned to establish 1,000 stores in the West coast and then moved to the East coast.  It took almost two years for the company to study the West coast market before establishing any store in the U.S.  But lately it ran into trouble competing with much larger Wal-Mart and Target Superstores and the likes of Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods Market.  Tesco employees more than 300,000 in the UK and operates more than 3,000 outlets.

Tesco trails Carrefour of France and Wal-Mart of the U.S. in worldwide sales.  Since 2007, Tesco spent over $1.6 billion capital to establish a foothold in the U.S.  Tesco is facing dwindling profits in 2012 in its biggest UK market, South Korea and the Eastern Europe.

Buying Electronics Is Easier than Ever

Surely, by now, the gales of wind from your friends’ TV rooms have reached you and made plain the great fun to be had with 3-D TVs. Look alive! you say, popcorn bowls are already being knocked over in your own home theater? Well, I’m not surprised. No one wants to miss out on all the fun television’s latest feature offers. I’m making sure a Samsung battery package appears on my to-buy list before I got out on my next shopping outing — my viewing glasses will be in good working order, always.

Samsung

And while I’m at it, I’ll also remember the fax machine’s Samsung toner cartridge I’ve been meaning to buy. Thank goodness shopping for electronics is so easy nowadays. There’s a great variety of useful and appealing products that can usually be found affordably priced.

Consumers can also take advantage of straightforward features sellers — like Samsung Parts, for example — provide to make finding the product you need fast and simple. Maybe you’re shopping for a critical piece but all you have to go on when looking is a cryptic looking note, “bp96-00608a,” written by your brother. No need to oh-brother your sibling, that’s the best note or description you can have. Just put it in the product look-up and you’ll find what you need. Happy shopping!

Valentines Day Ideas

As Oscar Wilde put it so deftly, “Women are meant to be loved, not understood”. This is quite the quandary for today’s modern male who finds jumping through hoops more as constructive as coming to terms in understanding a woman’s emotions that could be compared both figuratively and literally to a roller-coaster ride.

And even though, John Lennon said, “Love is all you need”, the truth really is that men find it hard enough to be original, thoughtful and spontaneous even if it is for one day in the year that is dedicated to love of the romantic kind – Valentine’s Day.

Women, on the other hand as a general rule, always manage to pull it off while men procrastinate until the last minute, and manage to pull it off with a gift that they ‘ended up with’, rather than following a premeditated plan.

So you have two options really: Blame your inability to do something special for your woman on the hunter-gatherer theory or get off your butt and do something about it. But just for the rookie in all of us, here are a few ideas that could just ‘save the day’:

1. Instead of buying a card, why not make a card on your own?
2. Write poetry (or at least try it) trying to be both funny and romantic
3. A bouquet of red roses is a must on this day
4. Make a music CD for your girlfriend/ wife filled with her ‘favorite’ songs
5. A long drive and romantic dinner always seems to do the trick on V-Day.

Samsung Group

Samsung is a brand name that consumers around the world are familiar with. Whether you’re purchasing a Samsung monitor for your computer or a Samsung water filter for your home, chances are you’ve heard of the company.

In truth, Samsung isn’t a single company, but rather a chaebol, a South Korean word that refers to a type of business conglomerate. Your Samsung washer dryer parts or cell phone comes from one of a number of different businesses that are affiliated under the name Samsung, which means “three stars” in Korean.

Samsung Electronics is probably the most well-known business in the Samsung chaebol. It is the biggest consumer electronics company in the world, meaning that you’re certainly not the only one out there shopping for a Samsung battery. More than 20% of all of South Korea’s exports are Samsung Group products, leading some to call the country The Republic of Samsung.

Is Black Friday worth it?

Waking up at an ungodly hour can be brutal, but if it is all in the name of a deal, why not? Take time to scour through the ads on in the newspaper on Black Friday sales deals and make sure you put together a comprehensive shopping list. Be as organized as possible, listing down names of stores, locations and most importantly the time you will set out for you at each store. Timing is important, as all deals are available only during certain times, and thus, your timing must be perfect, so you target as many offers as you want to.

Keep in mind that you probably do not need to camp outside the store to get the deal you have honed in on as most stores stock up in the hundreds for the biggest sale of the year. Therefore, even if you get to the store a few hours late, chances are the product you want will still be available. However, if there is something you have your heart set on, especially if it is a deal, then perhaps you should consider waking up at dawn to make it into the store at opening time. However, evaluate such decisions. Like for instance, would you
sacrifice two hours of sleep to save $25?

Black Friday sales can be an interesting and fun experience. You could make it a tradition with your friends, as one of those times of the year, saved for special memories. Alternatively, it could be all about that pair of shoes you have always wanted that you managed to get for next to nothing, an espresso machine, a big screen television and many more.

This is not just any sale. Black Friday sales are the greatest, biggest sales of the year – and yes, it is worth it, just remember planning is the key.

Samsung Announces Latest Washer and Dryer Machines

Samsung has introduced its newest washer and dryer set, the SilverCare WF 337. The frontload washer uses only one-third the water that typical top-loading machines require, saving the user water and money.

According to Samsung, the secret behind the SilverCare technology is the quadrillions of sanitizing silver ions released into every wash. The silver ions disinfect clothes in cold water and without bleach, eliminating 99 percent of odor-causing bacteria for up to 30 days. In addition to these features, the SilverCare is made with vibration reduction technology (VRT). Samsung states that the VRT completely reduces vibration and noise, even during unbalanced loads. Other great features include its extra-large capacity, and stainless steel drum for durability and long life.

The SilverCare WF 337 can be purchased through Samsung.com, while Samsung washer dryer parts are available through authorized dealers online. The washer and dryer machines are available in Neat White, Onyx Blue, Stratus Grey, or Tango Red. Whether you need Samsung remote controls or a Samsung water filter, make sure to have your model number, serial number and a description of the item you wish to purchase when you contact Samsung or an authorized dealer.
