Putting store managers in control of regional sales is just one way in which retailers are looking to emulate John Lewis’ online successes. The company has found its own method of combating the associated difficulties of managing multiple facets of data to provide a localised, or in other words, customer-centric, experience. As we move towards the realities of big data, retailers can look to invest in new systems that can help them achieve an overarching view of each individual customer; from what they buy, how they like to be contacted and what drives purchase decisions. M&S is one such retailer currently in flux, attempting to adapt its business to these 21st century necessities. It is not just its customer data management that needs overhauling but its stock data systems also. The Guardian recently extensively examined the failings in M&S’s distribution network thanks to its outdated data systems. Stock is still being counted by hand, meaning that stores simply don’t know fast enough what is selling and the current trends. This drastically limits the speed with which discounts can be offered to customers and effectively rules out any chance of personalised experiences for loyal shoppers. M&S has acknowledged these failings, so the industry will be watching with a very close eye to see how such a large retailer will embrace data.

Bostjancic said residents are concerned with the swift decision to make big changes — which also included naming Peck board secretary and appointing former Sharon United Methodist Church pastor Doug Booth board treasurer. Sandi Walton was named recording secretary and given a stipend of $150 per meeting, but according to Wednesday’s special meeting agenda, the board is once again looking to fill that position. Previously, those roles were performed by park district staff.
