Mike Nekta: The Prime Don of Diamonds

In every industry across the globe, there are notable titans straddling the stratospheres, commanding respect by virtue of their vast experience, sheer will and deep intellect. These are men and women who have cut their teeth in the most arduous ways possible in their industry, emerging as eminent experts in their businesses, gurus to be consulted on the most precarious issues concerning their industry. In the general world of jewelries (and more particularly diamonds), one name reverberates when these listed qualities are thought of - Mike Nekta.

The son, grandson and great-grandson of accomplished jewellers, Mike Nekta is a full-blooded jeweller that understands the need to combine family heritage with more professional education, in order to lead and adapt to industry innovations. That foresight and quick grasp of innovation was what made Mike opt out of his scholarship in Baruch University, going instead for a professional course in the Gemological Institute of America (which is the Harvard of the global diamond industry), specializing in diamonds, a credential that a majority of jewelers cannot boast of. The combination of street smarts developed by active dealing in the New York City diamond district since 1997 and his formal education at the GIA, alongside his experience in importing, exporting, and manufacturing jewelries has given Mike Nekta near-superhero type powers on anything diamond. A jeweler that is not formally educated is many times at the mercy of his suppliers, a costly plight that would surely negatively affect prices for clients. With his experience and formal education, that has never been so for Mike.

At heart, Mike is a romantic, a firm believer in the special nature of engagements and the fact that nothing else screams "special" more than beautifully customized wedding rings that individually express(es) each couples' unique bond in the best form. That knowledge and desire to create more memorable and personal moments for couples drove Mike to set out to design these kinds of rings that take each individual couple into consideration, on graduation. The beautiful thing about Mike Nekta's brand is the fact that he strongly believes (and ensures) that everyone experiences this magic, whether they are rich or poor, from America or from Africa. Where some other big brand jewelers charge unfair premiums even for young lovebirds with limited resources, Mike cuts down on all of that in order to ensure that his clients are satisfied and not scammed. Although a great number of his rich clients (that request large diamond designs) are people who prefer their purchase rather not be mentioned publicly, there are some exceptions. Among his publicly known outstanding designs is the rave Shahs of Sunset, a .2 million 15 carat diamond engagement ring designed for Lilly Galichi at the request of her tycoon fiancé, Dahr Mahn. 

By 2004 (which was twenty-nine years after the Nekta family set up shop in the tri-state area), Mike introduced the Nekta Watch Collection, a unique brand that  understands the bond that men have to their watches, solidifying that bond even more with personal touches for individual men. With this, the Nekta family jewelry business completed it's shift from a small chain of resale jewelry shops to a budding professional jewelry design and sales business to be reckoned with in the tri-state area and beyond, boasting of more than 250,000 collections.

Trying to fit Mike Nekta's accomplishments in the jewelry industry in a single article would not do true justice to him and his achievements in the business, but that is what we are doing here. As an astute business man, a jewelry designer, and a diamond expert, Mike Nekta has a very tiny pool of rivals, but what puts him ahead of the herd is his dedication to telling each of his individual client's story in the best fitting way possible with his designs. That is innate and cannot be bought, and it is what makes clients keep coming back with new people, and others in the business look up to and consult Mike on the diciest issues. He is one of the foremost authorities on anything diamond, a man who believes in guiding people and protecting them from scams.

ZUN Royal Helps Drive Up Sales of Luxury Goods in/after Pandemic

By Contributing Reporter: James Martin

“Chinese consumers…expressed a heady appetite for luxury brands that signaled status in a culture where that really mattered.”; “For the luxury market, we think the recovery (in or after pandemic) will be stronger and faster in China than in the U.S. and Europe.” ( Pamela N. Danziger, Forbes)

The pandemic has impacted the luxury goods market all around the world. However, the passion for luxury consumption in China never really ceased. The Chinese buyers especially enjoy shopping in America and in Europe, for the prices there are usually 40% lower than mainland China and the items are authentic. Forbes also predicted two main negative factors affecting this market; first, travel to and from China will be stalled; and second, social distancing measures in the post-coronavirus world will disrupt the retailing.  

This is what ZUN Royal Group aims to resolve. They coordinate a Shopping Agents Network composed of Chinese shopping agents who are living in New York and other major American cities and serving the buyers in China. ZUN Royal can effectively help drive up the sales in luxury boutiques, even in this pandemic. This is because Chinese buyers don’t need to travel anymore; the shopping agents will buy for them and ship to them directly; furthermore, social distancing is irrelevant as one shopping agent can buy for as many Chinese shoppers as he or she pleases. Here is the process:  

  1. ZUN Royal producers shoot their models at the boutiques, showcasing the new products.
  2. New product information together with model performance is uploaded on their official website (www.zunroyal.com).  This is the main news resource for Chinese shopping agents and buyers in China. This information also appears on all luxury/fashion/beauty websites in China, as well as all the leading Chinese comprehensive news portal websites. Zun Royal also works with the biggest Chinese influencers in the luxury consumption market to announce the launching of new products. Meanwhile, ZUN Royal will also send the information to all their shopping agents who will broadcast it on their social media which serve all their clients (buyers). Hence, every news release can cover the entire market in China.
  3. Buyers in China make their shopping list based on the new products information they acquire through those hundreds of websites and social media posts, then send to their shopping agents in America. The agents visit the boutiques to buy according to the list, and ship. 

ZUN Royal’s registered name is New York Celebrity Intercultural Communication Inc., NYCIC. It is a US-registered corporation with over ten years of history and prestigiously located on Park Ave in New York City. Their mission is to better connect international brands with Chinese market. Boutique managers can consult with their Executive Director of Luxury Sales, Mr. Raymond Chen, via email ray.chen@zunroyal.com, or direct line 212-603-9813.

2.5 Million Virtual Eyewear Try-Ons - a Revolutionary online shopping tool

The SmartBuyGlasses Optical Group is celebrating more than 2.5 million virtual eyewear try-ons - making shopping eyewear online easier (and cooler!) than ever before. 

The virtual try-on and frame recommendation technology from SmartBuyGlasses.com, the current tool being used developed by Ditto,  allows customers to quickly and effortlessly see themselves wearing over 14,000 eyeglasses or sunglasses in 180 degree angles from more than 180 designer brands.  

The Ditto technology has been in use on the website for the last 18 months and with such staggering numbers of customers using the tool, it’s clear the virtual try-on is revolutionising a ‘customers try on experience‘ and subsequently the shopping experience online. 

“At SmartBuyGlasses, we are working hard to continuously improve the customer shopping experience online. This includes being at the forefront of offering new technologies to surprise and delight our consumers, but also to provide real value and ease in shopping eyewear online. We are proud to have helped customers with their eye care and we continue offering our Virtual Try-On tool to consumers accessing our websites”, says David Menning,  co-CEO of The SmartBuyGlasses Optical Group.  

The key point is that customers can use the filter logic of the website to select the exact type of frame they want and then they are presented with 10<100 or more of the ‘ideal shapes’ that fit their specific requirements.

“It is more effective for a customer to short-list their chosen selection in this way, and then proceed to try them on, rather than going to a traditional optical store which typically only holds approximately 800 different frames,” says David Menning, co-CEO of  SmartBuyGlasses.



The app is developed by Ditto, an American tech start-up. “We want eyewear to be personal and accessible for everyone so we created technology that enables customers to easily discover frames that fit and match their style, allowing them to shop confidently at home,” says a representative from Ditto. 

All you need to use the tool is a smartphone or a computer with internet access. The tool will help you record a quick five second selfie video asking you to turn your head to the left, the centre and then to the right and back again. After that, you’re provided with face shape information including  advice on the most flattering styles for you and you can proceed to trying on glasses virtually. Start filtering  by ‘virtual try-on’ on the eyeglasses or sunglasses pages, hover your mouse over any product and instantly see what the glasses look like on your own face or the face of our in-house models. For a closer look, you can directly go to the product page, click ‘selfie-view’ and see yourself wearing a pair of glasses with stunning realism in high definition. 

SmartBuyGlasses’ Virtual Try On is compatible with both iOS and Android and available for free via SmartBuyGlasses Virtual Try On.

SmartBuyGlasses Brings the Top Performing Sunglasses for Winter Sports

Snow is one of the most reflective surfaces when it comes to light, so wearing sunglasses for winter sports is absolutely essential to avoid harmful UV rays, even without direct sunlight. Snow blindness (when bright light reflected from snow affects vision) is a real threat when skiing or snowboarding, particularly at high altitudes and travelling at high speeds. Hitting the slopes this winter? Make sure your ski goggles or ski glasses lenses provide 100% UV protection to ensure the best experiences.  

To make choosing the ideal pair of winter sports eyewear easy, SmartBuyGlasses provides you with a list of the top recommended products which are worth to be invested in before heading to the mountains.

Top Recommended Goggles

If you’re planning on skiing or snowboarding down the slopes this winter, consider equipping yourself with some quality ski goggles; they are your best choice for comfort, visibility and eye protection.

In low-light and fogging conditions, yellow, gold and amber lenses filter out blue light. Shadows are emphasized to see better the contours in the snow. They also work well in moderate and variable light conditions. Check out the Bloc Evolution E014 or the Bloc Small Fit Moon JM01.

When in bright and reflective snow conditions, darker lens tints such as dark brown, dark grey and dark green will increase contrast with the whites. Gray lenses are also good to reveal the true colours. Check out the Smith I/O7 IE7BKISA17, the Smith RIOT RO2BKECW17 and the Bolle Tsar.

Mirror coating enhances the effectiveness of tinted lenses by reflecting sunlight so it does not penetrate the lenses, making it a great choice for bright and sunny days. Check out the UVEX S40. 

Clear lenses are undoubtedly the best option for sunset and nighttime as they have the highest visible light transmission (VLT), increasing wearers’’ visibility on the slopes. Check out the Salice 609.

Photochromic lenses or transition lenses are designed to automatically adapt to surrounding light, making them perfect to ensure optimal vision and UV ray protection in every situation. Check out the Salice 618 ITA Speed Polarized BKIT/TECH and the Smith Goggles Smith I/OX.

Top Recommended Sunglasses

If you prefer opting for sunglasses over goggles, consider getting some 100% UV protecting sports sunglasses like these.

Sports sunglasses with a wrap-around frame minimize light reaching the eyes from all sides and allows better peripheral vision. Mirror coatings such as on this model are perfect for very bright conditions as they can block an additional 10 per cent to 60 per cent of visible light for greater comfort in highly reflective sunny environments. Check out the Smith RIDGEWELL ChromaPop Polarized and the UVEX SPORTSTYLE 223.

Polarized lenses selectively blocks light reflecting from horizontal surfaces, eliminating glare. Polarized lenses are especially helpful in blocking glare from light reflecting off water, sand, snow and concrete. This model is also made of highly durable polycarbonate made to withstand harsh conditions. Check out the Oakley OO9102 HOLBROOK.

Photochromic or transition lenses are not just found in the goggles, and provide the same optimal protection from unpredictable light conditions. By reacting to the surrounding light, they are perfect for every light condition, from low light to bright light on a sunny day. Check out the Oakley OO9290 JAWBREAKER. 

All of these models are available on SmartBuyGlasses website, discover their website for more information and lots more products.

Spain and 9 other teams premiere soccer jerseys

We all like soccer jerseys, I don't know why. But that's how it is. It doesn't matter if we like football or not. Football shirts are the new basic wardrobe for new generations. With this in mind, adidas has designed new camisetas de futbol for nine European teams that play UEFA Euro 2020: Germany, Wales, Hungary, Northern Ireland, Belgium, Spain, Russia, Scotland and Sweden. These new camisetas de futbol combine football and art with hand-made designs, instead of using digital tools.


Juergen Rank, Senior Design Director of camisetasfutboleses.com, commented: “It was a unique challenge to develop a line of shirts that would successfully convey the raw emotion and unifying effect of football. But starting the creative process focused on hand drawings allowed us to be more direct, human and emotional in what we created. We are delighted with an end result that really manages to unite the worlds of art and football. ”

The first shirt will be released on November 12, and will be available in two versions: the authentic one and a replica. These new https://www.camisetasfutboles.es/">camisetas de futbol have a new technical detail in the hem that make them much more ergonomic. They also have another important detail, and it is a special stamp designed to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the UEFA football competition.


The new camisetas de futbol baratas for Spain are an abstract representation of the national flag, with deep red and burgundy tones, with glitch pixel effects. On the neck there is special detail, puts 1920, in honor of the 100th anniversary of the first shirt of the Football Federation of Spain. The look is completed with the pants and the socks in a deep blue with the bands in powerful yellow. And well, regardless of your nationality, you can choose the one that grinds you the most. The long-sleeved shirts of Spain's first kit cost 99.95 euros and the short-sleeved one, 89.95 euros. And you can catch them on the web https://www.camisetasfutboles.es/.

These are the most valued soccer jerseys

The sporting successes of the teams are very attractive for the big companies of the most varied branches of industry. And a good showcase are their soccer jerseys. https://www.camisetasfutboleses.com/ Thus, the magnet that attracts the attention of these companies are the players who play in those clubs, being in many cases even greater in the decision to place high sums of money - and their sponsorship - in them.

In this way, Camisetas de futbol, as well as all the merchandising of what surrounds a club, is one of the accessories that sports fans look for in the best way as proof and identity sign with their favorite team, as well as the way to express your feelings towards one or the other accordingly. In this way, from camisetasfutboleses.com we show you which are the most valuable.

The power of selling cheap soccer jerseys in club income

In the British teams, as is the case with Chelsea, their economic health depends quite little on what happens on the field every weekend, as evidenced by the millionaire contracts with the Nike sports brand and Yokohama.

These two big brands are the ones that sustain the economic stuff of the other powerful club in London, the Arsenal, in a great way, even though this year the ‘Gunners’ have changed to the Adidas firm.

Thus, these look on their soccer jerseys, although according to sales it seems easy to explain the interest of these two teams to be present in the elastic. It is true that the sale of soccer jerseys has become a priority for clubs across Europe because the revenue generated is necessary to increase the potential of their templates at https://www.camisetasfutboleses.com/.

iBrands Global Announces Take Over of Operations at Alloy Apparel

IBrands Global announced they have taken over operations of Alloy Apparel, an iconic fashion brand thoughtfully catering to tall and curvy woman, in a deal that also gave IBrands partial ownership to the brand’s intellectual property. Founded in 1996, Alloy became a household name for its expansive junior trend-focused catalog; however, over time, the brand narrowed its focus on Tall after discovering the potential of the vastly underserved demographic.

IBrands will bring a myriad of design and operational expertise to the Alloy partnership. Having recently entered into a similar arrangement with the original founders of Juicy Couture for the LA-centric brand, Pam & Gela, IBrands is looking to elevate and expand the Alloy collection in 2020.

Alloy Apparel is exclusively sold on its website (http://www.alloyapparel.com). Targeting the Tall woman online highlights the advantages of pinpoint digital marketing and micro-targeting. “We live in a country with over 150 million women, but the addressable market for a woman 5’9” to say 6”9” is a tiny fraction.” Marc Garson, Chairman of IBrands explains. “This is the type of business that could never survive before ecommerce. There simply aren’t enough 6’3” women in any town or city to support a physical store. Yet online, we find thousands of customers throughout the US and 30% of our sales are international.”

Still, targeting Tall women with digital advertising has its challenges. Google and Facebook, who collectively control nearly 60% of digital advertising market share, have no direct way to target Tall women like they can with other demographic and interest information. To help the effort, Alloy created and manages the popular Instagram handle @TallGirlHumor where fun content that appeals to Tall women can be found and shared. “We look at Instagram as today’s version of the magazine,” explains IBrands CEO, Remy Garson. “People come to TallGirlHumor for valuable and engaging content relevant to Tall women, which happens to be our target customer. Whereas a magazine would charge advertisers to reach our niche audience, we simply direct that traffic to Alloy.” 

For Fall 2019, the first collection Alloy Apparel released in collaboration with IBrands Global offers everyday styles such as tops, bodysuits, denim, pants, jumpsuits, dresses, blazers, knits, and loungewear. Their retail price ranges from to , further reinforcing the value of accessibility for their customers. Aside from Alloy Apparel’s primary Tall collection, the brand has made deliberate strides in delivering size inclusivity with the launch of Alloy Tall Plus and Alloy Plus in Spring 2018 where sizes range from 2-24.

About IBrands:
IBrands is a diversified company with a portfolio of brands, licenses, and fashion tech products for the apparel, accessories, travel and health & wellness industries. They design, manufacture and sell sportswear, denim, outerwear, handbags, luggage, accessories and wellness products online and in stores.

About Alloy Apparel:
Alloy Apparel empowers all Tall Women across the world to love their height and feel confident in their own skin. Tall comes in all shapes and sizes and Alloy is proud to offer the latest trends in long inseams and larger size options! Alloy is also known for its superior quality pants and stylish denim at affordable prices. They encourage women to celebrate their long legs, embrace their curves!

Driving Service Excellence: Uniform Advantage Collaborates with AdventHealth

Uniform Advantage (UA), was selected as the exclusive uniform provider to support AdventHealth, one of the nation’s largest faith-based health systems, as it underwent its brand transition from Adventist Health System. The contract award kicked off a massive program implementation process – from product selection to fitting events to uniform delivery. The scope of the new uniform program included more than 45,000 team members, in both clinical and non-clinical roles within the organization, spanning across dozens of facilities nationwide including hospital campuses, urgent care centers, home health and hospice agencies, and nursing homes across the AdventHealth footprint.

“Having a partner with experience in this space and that has done this with multiple organizations of different scale is helpful as you’re going through a pretty significant transition,” says Olesea Acevedo, chief human resources officer for AdventHealth. “It was great to be able to have Uniform Advantage as a partner to help us along this journey to make this a much easier process than we had initially anticipated.”

To meet the ambitious timeline for the project, UA hosted on-site mobile stores at AdventHealth locations in Florida, Kansas, Wisconsin, Kentucky, Georgia and Texas. The events were designed to expedite the fitting and order placement process, while reducing disruption and time away from the bedside.

“Using our retail expertise, we were able to create an efficient, personalized shopping experience for AdventHealth team members,” commented Corey Heller, executive vice president of business development for Uniform Advantage. “We believe onsite mobile fittings are the keystone to a successful program implementation. These events are extremely convenient for team members to attend and are an excellent way to enhance program adoption and compliance.”

Each mobile store offered the full range of approved products, in all available sizes. Team members were provided a guided, personalized shopping experience and given the opportunity to order at the event.

“One thing we wanted to do was give our team members the opportunity to really be hands on with the new uniform program. Team members were able to try things on, feel the different fabrics, see the styles and test the pockets,” said Anthony Vera Cruz, director of culture integration for AdventHealth. “UA offered a very turnkey and seamless approach that made the process and experience easy for our team members.”

Uniform delivery is underway and expected to be completed in December 2019.

Amazon first stop for apparel, with brand websites making a play for younger shoppers

The retail outlook for the year ahead is bright, with the National Retail Federation predicting growth of up to 4.4% for a total of more than .3 trillion in sales. For apparel brands, all eyes are on Amazon. With its two-day shipping, easy checkout and returns, and enormous catalog of brands -- the e-commerce giant has undeniably rewritten the playbook for retail. So how can apparel brands win their share of sales?

To better understand the evolving consumer behaviors that are driving growth for apparel sales, CPC Strategy, a retail-focused digital marketing agency acquired by Elite SEM in September 2018, surveyed 2,000 consumers about their shopping habits. The 2019 U.S. Forecast on Apparel Shopping Trends uncovered some surprising trends that should inform every retail brand’s advertising strategy - including a breakdown of how different age groups shop, how shoppers will browse and buy across devices, and what features influence their purchase decisions. A full report on the study’s methodology and findings, along with analysis of the results, can be found on the CPC Strategy website.

"Our study shows that 63% of Gen Z and 57% of Millennial shoppers are already purchasing apparel from Amazon, with Gen Z also showing a strong affinity for buying clothing directly from brand websites,” said Nii Ahene, COO and cofounder of CPC Strategy. “Although Amazon may be the apparel website of choice for younger shoppers, most age groups are browsing and buying clothing across multiple shopping channels, which speaks to the need for brands and retailers to invest in a strategic multi-channel strategy to engage with apparel shoppers across multiple touchpoints.”

Shopping channels do matter when it comes to apparel, especially when looking at different age groups. With a collective purchasing power of more than 0 billion as measured by Millennial Marketing and Nielsen, Generation Z and Millennials will drive e-commerce apparel growth, and cite features like free and fast shipping, low prices, and convenience as the most important features when buying apparel online.

Commissioned by CPC Strategy and conducted by Survata, the survey asked 2,000 online respondents ages 18-65 a series of questions, including how often they shop for clothes online, what items they’ve purchased in the past six months, which devices they prefer to use, and what category they’re most likely to consider for off-brand/generic apparel.

Other key findings of the report: 

  • Casual wear is a top category. 59.2% of shoppers are buying casual wear online, a number that jumps to 70% when looking at Generation Z only.
  • Mobile is catching up to desktop with young shoppers. 63% of shoppers are still using desktop for apparel shopping, however, 42% of these same consumers also use mobile — a number bolstered by Gen Z and Millennial shoppers.
  • Shoppers are willing to explore private label basics. 47.4% of shoppers said they would consider purchasing off-brand casual apparel over a name brand. These shoppers are also more open to trying unfamiliar brands that sell active and outerwear.
  • Free shipping rated top feature for apparel websites. 53.9% value free shipping more than any other feature when it comes to making apparel purchases online — far more than customer reviews, easy returns, and the ability to filter items.

What can brands learn from this research? To succeed in 2019, brands must build visibility across multiple channels. That could mean improving the functionality and features of an e-commerce website on desktop and mobile, investing in premium content if that brand is selling on Amazon, and implementing a paid media strategy to scale traffic to each.

For an overview of the research findings with a link to the complete study, please visit https://cpcstrategy.com/the-2019-us-forecast-on-apparel-shopping-trends/?utm_medium=publications

New Coloredge Strategic Initiative E Digitally Transforms Visual Marketing For Retail Industry

Coloredge, the largest provider of visual marketing solutions for upscale brands and retailers, announced today a new, national strategic initiative that will deepen Coloredge’s technology and service offerings to enhance its competitive edge in today’s rapidly evolving retail market. The initiative, which spans three key parts of Coloredge’s business, will leverage digital technologies to change the way in which customers can adapt more easily to rapidly changing paradigms and allows Coloredge to be more customer centric.

The initiative has been underwritten by a new multi-million-dollar investment from its privately held owner, Saints Capital. The amount of the investment was not disclosed.

Transforming How Business is Done

“We’re very excited to move ahead with this transformative new initiative at Coloredge,” said Emmanuel Doe, CEO of Coloredge. “This retail industry is evolving faster than ever, and with this evolution comes the need for new capabilities and technologies. This new initiative we are putting into place will dramatically enhance how the retail marketplace can utilize the new enhanced framework of Coloredge to respond quickly to their customers and adopt the digital transformation that is upon them. When fully implemented, it will enable us to deliver exciting, timely and revenue generating results for our customers, vendors and partners,” Doe added.

“This latest investment in Coloredge underscores our deep commitment to the long-term success of Coloredge as a force for transformation in the industry,” said Ken Sawyer, Managing Director and Co- Founder of Saints Capital. “The eventual winners in this marketplace will be those companies that understand how to apply innovative approaches and accompanying technology to the needs of today’s and tomorrow’s customers. That’s what Coloredge is committing to with this new initiative.”

A Broad Three-Point Plan

The new strategic initiative announced by Coloredge is focused on three key areas:

1. A new collaborative digital technology platform to respond to the new consumer lifecycle. As part of an intensive expansion of digital and creative capabilities, Coloredge will be investing in a new collaborative system that will enable design, manufacturing, asset and creative sharing among Coloredge, clients and partners. This will also provide creative experiential insight, manufacturing templates and improve time and cost to market. This is an especially timely enhancement as the retail market looks for new ways to adopt digital transformation.

2. Expansion of East Coast Operations. The initiative will support the purchase of additional best in class equipment and highly skilled staff, resulting in an improved total cost of ownership for customers. The expansion will help Coloredge deliver the high-end visual displays that result in exceptional and memorable consumer experiences. It will also help Coloredge deliver more customized capabilities to indie and startup brands who seek a trusted partner as they move beyond direct-to-consumer and e-commerce and into retail environments.

3. Funding for strategic acquisitions. The new capital will provide new funds with which Coloredge can potentially make strategic acquisitions, with an initial focus on the West Coast. This will boost Coloredge’s national presence and provide additional leverage for effectively serving its top 1,000 customers in key segments.

About Coloredge 
Coloredge is the largest provider of visual marketing solutions for upscale brands and retailers. With nationwide operations in New York City, Los Angeles, Atlanta, and Carlstadt, New Jersey, Coloredge creates high-impact visual spaces for retailers, museums, events, arenas, and corporate environments.

Cellular Sales, the largest independent Verizon Wireless retailer by volume, announces their expansion in Colorado with a new store in Firestone. Over the next year, the store is expected to add new jobs within the local community.

In addition to generating loyal and competent employees, the training and support is valuable from a personal and professional development aspect. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics expects demand for retail sales jobs to grow over the next decade and sales experience will be valuable.

“At Cellular Sales, our team members are our greatest asset and we’re excited to have the opportunity to build a solid team,” said Cellular Sales Regional Director James Russell. “We are also very excited to have the chance to be a part of the Firestone community.”

Laguardia Gateway Partners To Open First 11 Gates In Brand New Terminal B

LaGuardia Gateway Partners (LGP) – the private entity operating and redeveloping LaGuardia Airport's Terminal B, announced today that it will open the first 11 gates located in the eastern concourse of the new state-of-the-art Terminal B on December 1st, 2018.  LGP is comprised of Vantage Airport Group, Skanska, Meridiam and JLC Infrastructure.

With best-in-class retail and food options, innovative design and family-friendly spaces and modern amenities, the new concourse showcases LaGuardia Gateway Partners' and Governor Cuomo's vision to build a unified, 21st century airport that is a leader in guest experience, innovation and sustainability.

Air Canada, American Airlines, and Southwest Airlines will all operate flights from the new concourse, with United Airlines joining in 2019.

"The opening of the new eastern concourse at Terminal B is just the first step in our mission to provide a top-class visitor experience at LaGuardia, worthy of the greatest city in the world," said Stewart Steeves, Chief Executive Officer of LaGuardia Gateway Partners. "Our concourse's innovative design, inclusive atmosphere, and choice food and retail options will bring LaGuardia into the 21st century, and we're proud to work with both the Governor and the Port Authority to transform Terminal B into a gateway New Yorkers can be proud of."

The concourse features ample gate seating, with charging stations throughout seating areas, a nursing room, and thoughtfully designed restrooms that include spacious stalls and above sink shelves that will keep belongings dry. It also features Air Canada's Maple Leaf Lounge, with the United Club to follow in 2019.

We are excited to have worked with our partners and so many subcontractors to make the opening of the eastern concourse of Terminal B a reality," said Magnus Eriksson, Executive Vice President of Skanska and Chair of the Board of LaGuardia Gateway Partners. "This collaborative effort, using innovative construction and design techniques is something that we are proud to bring to LaGuardia, and our project continues to have one of the largest Minority and Women Owned Business Enterprises (MWBE) participation goals in the New York State."

New retail options available in the new concourse include the latest New York City location for the legendary New Yorktoy store FAO Schwarz, as well as offerings from SoHo based independent bookseller McNally Jackson, Hudson, LaGuardia Dufry Duty Free Shops, M?A?C, District Market – with specialty Made in Queens products – and Spa Here.

These shops join the previously announced food and beverage partners from earlier this year:  Shake Shack, Irving Farm Coffee Roasters, Osteria Fusco, La Chula Bar & Taqueria, Kingside Bar & Restaurant and Five Boroughs Market. 

Prioritizing a family-friendly atmosphere, the new concourse also features an airport themed children's play area, which includes a 16-foot interactive display. The display creates a multi-user experience that allows kids of all ages to design their own aircraft on a tablet and watch it come to life on a giant digital wall as it takes off from LaGuardia's runway.

The play area is nestled next to a beautiful indoor green space, modeled after New York City's own parks, that includes greenery, benches and plenty of natural light for passengers to relax with their children and families before their flights.

"Today's milestone is the result of strong partnerships and a bold vision for LaGuardia Airport," said George Casey, Chair and CEO, Vantage Airport Group. "Since 2016, we have been proud to bring Vantage's expertise in airport investment, project management, commercial development and management and operations to the transformation of Terminal B, and look forward to celebrating many more milestones that will entirely transform the passenger experience at LaGuardia Airport."

When complete, Terminal B will completely redefine the guest experience at LaGuardia. Dual pedestrian bridges will span active aircraft taxi lanes – the first in the world – and connect the main part of the terminal to two island concourses. Passengers will walk above aircraft as they make their way to their gate, all while enjoying views of the iconic Manhattan skyline. In addition, this island and bridge design will increase the taxi-way space for aircraft. The gates in the concourse are "common use," meaning that any Terminal B airline can use any gate – increasing efficiency. 

"We're building a completely new, unified airport that will be a leader in innovation and a model for redevelopment projects across the country," said Jane Garvey, Chairman of Meridiam North America.  "From advancements in technology to iconic NY shops and restaurants, the new LaGuardia is delivering for New York. Meridiam is proud to join today with LaGuardia Gateway Partners and Governor Cuomo to celebrate our continued progress at Terminal B and create an exciting future for the city."

In July 2015, Governor Cuomo unveiled the vision for a comprehensive redevelopment of LaGuardia Airport. The 1.3-million square foot redevelopment of Terminal B, with a construction value of  billion, is one of the largest public-private partnerships in American history and the largest in U.S. aviation.

The redevelopment includes a new 35-gate terminal, a parking garage, and a Central Hall, which will unify the airport by connecting to Terminal C, which is also being redeveloped. Once complete, Governor Cuomo and LGP will have created a state-of-the-art terminal that truly celebrates the best of New York.

Exclusive photos of the concourse, including the offerings and amenities available, are available at: https://sunshinesachs.egnyte.com/fl/4WJE56NBDA.

Cummins Selects Agility Warehouse Park in Ghana for Regional DC

Cummins Selects Agility Warehouse Park in Ghana for Regional DC Agility facility to stock parts for Cummins regional operations in West Africa ACCRA, Ghana – May 22, 2018 – Agility, a leading global logistics provider, has leased warehouse space in the Agility Warehouse Park in Ghana to Cummins for a new West African Distribution Center.

Cummins, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of diesel engines, generators, filtration and associated engine components, will use the facility to stock and distribute a range of over 10,000 spare parts for Cummins operations across West Africa.

Cummins joins other multinationals and small and medium-sized Ghanaian companies that have chosen the Agility Warehouse Park at Tema because its secure, convenient location provides international standard warehousing and services for their West African operations.

Location was a significant factor in Cummins’ selection. The Agility park is eight kilometers from Ghana’s main seaport and is adjacent to the Aflao highway connecting Ghana to Ivory Coast, Togo, Benin, and Nigeria.

Felix Bani, Cummins Operations Manager – Central Supply Chain Operations (CSCO), said: “Product distribution can be fast-tracked, either by road, sea or air. By choosing the Agility Warehouse Park, Cummins has addressed one of the biggest constraints to companies doing business in West Africa – the lack of quality infrastructure.”

Bani said Cummins was also attracted to the facility because it meets international environmental standards and features eco-friendly construction materials. Agility used energy efficient roof and side insulated panels; wind-driven roof fans; skylights for natural lighting; LED and energy-saving bulbs; and solar-powered streetlights. The site will recycle paper, plastic, metal, and carton waste. It provides eco-friendly waste management services and carbon footprint reporting.

The Agility Warehouse Park in Ghana is part of a network of international standard warehouse parks that Agility is funding and developing across key markets in Africa to support the development of domestic and regional trade.

Geoffrey White, CEO Agility Africa, said, “We believe that the provision of international standard warehouses in Africa for storage, distribution and light manufacturing is one of the fundamental building blocks necessary for economic growth. The Agility Warehouse Parks enable companies, whether multinationals such as Cummins, or small and medium enterprises, to access quality infrastructure easily, quickly and cost effectively.”

A String Of Latest Coupons Including Zappos Discount Coupon Codes From Don’tPayAll Beckoning Consumers

By adding thousands of coupon codes and discount codes every week, Don’tPayAll is forging ahead as a leading coupon website in the market. 

This web store features much more. There are daily deals in almost all categories one can think of. 

Zappos discount coupon codes are enticing customers to buy the latest in men’s and women’s shoes, kids’ clothing, and more.

The use of digital coupon codes is witnessing an exponential rise.
 
Customers buying on the net are lapping up coupon codes in millions.
 
According to an estimate, a little more than 300 billion coupons were distributed in 2012.
  
With companies floating more digital coupons and a greater share of buyers using them, the traditional paper coupon seems to be slowly edging out. 

Companies are trying to be smarter than competition by making it easier for consumers to locate coupons. 

All one needs to do now is visit websites like Don’tPayAll, a virtual one-stop shop to get any coupon deal under the sun.

For example, integrity botanicals coupon offers discounts on numerous skin care, body care, and hair care products containing natural or organic ingredients.
 
Digital coupons are offering merchants’ more flexibility in their deals. They set limits on the validity of the coupons, on how many times a consumer can use a coupon, and also discontinue the deal when the promotion kits its target limit. 

“Retailers are smart when they offer coupons”, says a stay at home mom. “I am always fastidious when I choose to apply these”. 

Shoppers seem to be smarter. 

“A company stands to lose its credibility if its coupons are not functional”, says a spokesperson for Don’tPayAll. 

Don’tPayAll seems to be going out of its way in ensuring coupons displayed in its website are functional. 

“We take the utmost care by pre-verifying all coupons for its functionalities,” assures Don’tPayAll. 

A good percentage of millennial, Generation Xers, and baby boomers are now extensively using digital coupons. 

Nearly 25 million Americans are using mobile coupons applications every month. 

But there seems to plenty of scope still for the digital coupon industry to expand. 

According to a report, US shoppers have not yet completely switched over to digital coupons. Even by adding up the mobile coupon offers and increase in discount apps, only half or 50% of the US population are using online coupons.
 
With Don’tPayAll offering an enormous collection of ready-to-use coupons, we may well see a gradual but definitive increase in coupon code users. 

About 

Don’tPayAll, a registered trade mark of BOGO COMPANY., LTD is a top firm in the coupon trading market. It provides a huge assortment of active coupon codes and deals from thousands of reputable brand names from across the globe.
