Mission Possible 2020

Dear MSBC, In a survey conducted by National Public Radio and The Marist Poll (a national public opinion poll) in November 2018, almost half of all American adults planned to make New Year’s resolutions for the upcoming year of 2019. Not surprisingly the most popular resolution was to get more involved with physical exercise. An analysis from Strava (a social fitness network) found that those who make such resolutions for working out more, usually abandon…

Just a brief number of years ago, Best Buy was ripping along as one of the nation’s top and most respected retailers. In 2001 Discount Store News named Best Buy the “Specialty Retailer of the Decade.” In 2004 Forbes magazine named Best Buy the…
