  • Kohl's Vera Wang Line: Why Don't They Talk About It? Friday, 10 Aug 2007 | 8:38 AM ET

    It is the biggest launch in Kohl's history but the company does not want to discuss it.

With the massive launch of the Vera Wang designed "Simply Vera" collection, you would expect that Kohl's would be backing up their bet on Vera with a media onslaught. But that's not the case.

  • What Wal-Mart is Watching... Friday, 15 Jun 2007 | 8:52 AM ET

    It is almost summer but you wouldn't know it by the weather. Next week, the season officially kicks off and the week is expected to be the second coldest, and driest first week of summer in 15 years!
