Amazon Paying Closer Attention to Kate Hudson’s Fabletics

Amazon has been is such command of the online apparel market that they don’t have to exert too much effort wondering what their competition is doing these days. In the very competitive clothing niche, Amazon takes in 20 percent of the sales while all the other sellers have to fight for the remaining. One company that is not content on settling for those morsels any longer is Kate Hudson’s Fabletics, taking over $250 million in active-wear sales in three years and really giving Amazon reason to pause.

When asked how her company has been seeing such huge success, Hudson says her athleisure brand is more than high-quality and low pricing. She says that the company utilizes a combination of unique membership perks combined with a very convenient sales process known as reverse-showrooming. Let’s look to see how these components all work together and give these women the ultimate shopping experience possible. We start our journey at the Fabletics stores in your local mall. Here you find women of every age and size trying on all the latest in women’s workout apparel. These women might be taking the Fabletics Lifestyle Quiz or even window-shopping on the lunch breaks. Bottom line, you don’t have to buy anything at the mall in order for this company to grow its bottom line.

Now we journey online to the Fabletics e-commerce store to see where the real magic takes place. These women who already were shopping in the mall and trying on clothing get to see their membership benefits right out of the gate. The first thing that they will discover is all that clothing that looked great ion them at the mall has been transferred to their online accounts. Since they now know how the pants and tank tops fit, all they have to do now is to buy new arrivals, fun colors, and exciting styles.

Kate Hudson’s Fabletics rewards members with free shipping on those online orders, and they also get to enjoy discounts on the active-wear.

OSI Purchases Tyson Foods Plant — Chicago, Illinois

OSI Industries is an Aurora-based food processing company that has currently purchased a local Tyson Foods plant in the city of Chicago for $7.4 million. This is according to the accounts of the Cook County Recorder of Deeds. Tyson announced that they were going to have to shut the plant down and that about 450 people would lose their jobs.

At the time that OSI came along, it was estimated that about 250 employees were still working at the Tyson Foods plant. A spokesperson for OSI, Alison Kovaleski said that she was unable to state exactly how many people were still working at the plant after OSI bought it. The reason for this is because the plant had already closed before OSI Group was able to buy it, although the company would like to restore many of those positions as possible, it was unsure as to how many jobs would actually be able to be brought back.

OSI Group has since announced that their main reason for buying the facility was because it met the needs of their current customers to continue rapidly producing more product. This is a 200,000 foot facility that the OSI Group has purchased and it is expected to boost their productivity in the area of protein-enriched foods and other growing consumer areas, which the company sites as an area of business that they they very much needed more space and warehouses to produce. The exact products cited as a reason to buy this plant and grow their production included selling more beef, pork, poultry, and sea foods to name a few.

This infrastructure that has been purchased will go a long way to helping the OSI Group meet the ever-growing demand by their customer base for these specific kinds of products, thus buying this facility made sense! OSI Industries is a privately-owned corporation that has currently running 60 facilities in 17 different countries.
