This is an interesting article that was in Forbes. It probably goes with our Chapter 7 Part 1 â€“ the Services Industry, which is huge not only in our country but all over the world. Services account for much more of GDP than manufacturing, and that has been true for a very long time now. Interestingly, I guess the article ties in with manufacturing as well, since the products they sell are all manufactured somewhere!
Additionally, this retailer has opened a store right here in Conway not too long ago â€“ our daughter and I absolutely love to wander around in there (and occasionally buy something, lol).
Without â€œgiving away the punchlineâ€ or â€œspoiler alertâ€ or whatever kind of analogy Iâ€™m looking for (lol), there is one very surprising thing youâ€™ll read about in the article. Read the article and â€œprove to me that you read itâ€; and see if you can identify the â€œsurprising factâ€ about the firm. I think youâ€™ll know it when you see it.

As this article is a few years old now, how about you go out to Google and see whatâ€™s happened lately? My students from this past summer did so, and there were some interesting things found out.
