 RMI Directors in the News this Holiday Season!

Friday, Nov. 30, 2012

Retail Management Institute executive director Dale Achabal and director Kirthi Kalyanam were in heavy demand by local, regional, national and even international media outlets for their insights into Black Friday and how the phenomenon has

crept earlier and later into the year, creating “Black Thursday” and “Cyber Monday.”
Prof. Achabal spoke to or was quoted by the (Findlay, Ohio) Courier; ABC7 News; KLIV and KGO radio; CBS San Francisco; KOFY- TV; Patch.com; and Chinese broadcaster CCTV.
Prof. Achabal was also quoted in two pre-Black Friday stories in the San Francisco Chronicle, about the opening of a Uniglo store and about malls.

Prof. Kalyanam spoke to or was quoted in several stories in the San Jose Mercury News (each of which also ran in a dozen or more other papers or websites, such as the Chicago Tribune, Hartford Courant, Politico and Bloomberg BusinessWeek); Merced Sun-Star; Seattle Times (which also ran in Bloomberg BusinessWeek); San Francisco Chronicle; Detroit News; KLIV and ABC radio; KTVU Channel 2; and the Denver Post.
