True Value makes Adjustments to its Pricing Strategy

True Value unveiled its new pricing and merchandising approach at the co-op’s General Session in Denver. This move is part of its expansive strategic plan. Kenneth Goodgame, the senior VP and also chief merchandise officer of True Value stated that nobody can make money from opening-price-point product. This was due to the few opening price points that customers were to expect following the adjustments. Ken added that by offering more assortment products of higher and mid-price-points, it will be possible to differentiate the company from the discount competitors. This will drive higher value for customers while increasing the gross margin for retailers.

Another important step is the addition of regional buyers to help improve the assortment relevance and boost the product productivity. This effort will be assisted by Geo-Demographic Analysis, which is a new tool contained in the True Value box for measuring trade-area dynamics. Goodgame said that in the past, the company only relied on Basic, Dominant and Expanded assortment choices (basically large, medium or small). This used to ignore the geographic requirements of retailers. The move would enable the company to add assortments that would meet the consumer’s geographical needs. These assortments are available for urban, rural and suburban local markets.

John Goullet Is Looking For The Best In People

John Goullet loves to look out for people and go the extra mile for them. It is in his nature and it was how he was brought up and how he operates. Quite frankly, he does not know any other way to conduct himself. It was how he was raised by his mentors and his family members. He is all about paying it forward. His job at Diversant as Principal Executive is one that allows him to do that every day he is on the job. They offer support and support is something that someone can not put a price tag on in today’s day and age.

There are a lot of people that see the world as a dog-eat-dog world. They are out for themselves and only themselves. They are afraid of the competition and want nothing to do with it. They would rather keep things the status quo and keep their position. However, there is the future and it is important to look out for the future IT professionals. It is a passing of the torch, so to speak. When they are working for Fortune 500 companies in their future, they need to know what they are doing and how to do it the right way.

When they have that support, they lean on it when they get started working for a Fortune 500 company. They remember the lessons they were taught and they remember the advice they were given by someone like John Goullet. This is a man that knows the IT world like the back of his hand. He is all ears when it comes to questions and he also has an open door policy. If anyone needs anything at any time while with Diversant, he has an answer and he has a good answer. Even after they are done with Diversant, he makes himself open to people and there for them. The support does not just end when they get the job. Support is a never ending thing and something that people need not only at work but in life as well as it will throw many unexpected curve balls.

James Dondero, Dallas’s best

James Dondero is one of Dallas’s best. His giving is local in nature, and as CEO of Highland Capital Management, he has made lots of strides in causes that align with his heart—veteran, education, and healthcare initiatives all are covered by his philanthropic vision.

Recently, he realized he had a budget to spend, and so he hired The Dallas Foundation to connect him with causes that would benefit from Highland Capital’s money. The Dallas Foundation then combined with Highland Capital to create The Highland Dallas Foundation, which seeks to create new long-term giving projects to improve North Texas.

They wanted to create giving that would be bold and effective, and James Dondero says that he hired Linda Owen to be the director of Highland Dallas because of her “experience, guidance, and relationships” in North Texas. Dondero has some connections himself, and has worked with The Perot Museum, The George Bush Presidential Library, and The Dallas Zoo.

One of Dondero’s goals is to create long-term goals for giving that will aid non-profits and help them get off the ground if they need to. It takes a lot to sustain a non-profit, and Dondero doesn’t want to give up on non-profits after a one-time gift: he wants to continue to support them.

Can The Highland Dallas Foundation help improve North Texas? We think so. It appears that the combination of James Dondero’s vision with The Dallas Foundation’s expertise is perfectly situated to create in Dallas an even more wonderful place to live.

Norka Luque Views Music From a Different Perspective

To many artists, music is just an avenue for getting money and earning respect from peers and fans. However, Norka Luque views music from a different angle. She believes that music is a crucial tool by which an individual makes a positive impact in the society. Norka understands the benefits of music and its strong influence on people’s emotions. She acknowledges that through music, a person can bring joy to people’s hearts, create hope to the hopeless and educate the ignorant.

Norka Luque is one of the few artists who share with others the joy and positivism associated with music. Her song lyrics are objectively selected to create a positive impact on people, both young and old. She motivates them to be resilient and persistent enough to chase their dreams. She uses her story as a female musician to make people believe that the impossible is possible.

Norka’s rise to popularity as a musician in US and Venezuela did not come on a silver platter. It was as a result of a combination of hard work, passion, practice and tenacity. She began her musical ambitions at a tender age. Her parents gave her the support she needed to engage in music as a child. She trained in some of the best music schools in Venezuela before moving to France to pursue a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration.

While in France, Norka did not stop loving music. The bond between her and music was very strong, and nothing including school could separate them. She formed a band in university. The band could perform at university events and popular clubs within the city. She continued to sharpen herself each day. She was beginning to gain popularity for her amazing performances. Norka Luque experienced a drastic shift in her musical career when she was called by Emilio Estefan Jr, a popular music producer, to join his team.

Under Stefan, Norka produced several singles that were widely applauded by the Venezuelan showbiz. Her single “Miracle” hit the country’s music industry like a storm. The popularity of the song quickly spread like a wildfire. Within two days after the release, it hit the top of the charts in the country, topping the charts for 14 weeks.

Norka Luque currently lives in Miami, FL where she continues to pursue her musical ambitions. She is working on a new song “Milagro,” which will be produced by her own company Norka Music.

Relmada Therapeutics Seeks to Change Its Complaint Against Laidlaw and Its Executives

Relmada Therapeutics recently filed an amendment request to the Nevada District Court following its previous complaint against Laidlaw & Company. Relmada Therapeutics, which is a clinical company offering novel therapies for controlling chronic pain, apparently made an agreement with Laidlaw to provide it with investment banking services. It is accusing Laidlaw & Company of failure to honor the terms of agreement citing intentional breach of contract.

In its capacity as Relmada’s investment banker, Laidlaw allegedly released confidential information about the company. Consequentially, Relmada wants Laidlaw to pay for the damages caused by the oversight. Relmada also wants monetary compensation to cover the fees it used to respond to Laidlaw’s false proxy materials.

If the Nevada District Court judge agrees to the amendment, then Laidlaw will have to part with a lot of money to cover the breach of fiduciary duty. In its claim, Relmada noted that the court had already provided Laidlaw’s executives Mathew Eitner and James Ahern with an injunction.

About Laidlaw & Company

Laidlaw & Company is a multi-national firm operating in the United Kingdom and the United States. The company was formed in London, but it later relocated to the United States with New York City becoming its main base of operation. Laidlaw & Company offers investment solutions to thousands of clients. The company was formerly known as Sands Brothers International Ltd, but it changed its name as a result of poor reputation.

Laidlaw has a long history of reputation crisis in the United Sates. It is a notorious company that is popular for repeatedly violating SEC laws and financial regulations. Relmada Therapeutics’ case is just one of many complaints the company has been mentioned in. Within a span of two years, it received complaints from over 60 clients, which is a bad thing for an investment banking company.

New Brunswick DEVCO Struggles to Meet Loan Repayment

The Middlesex County Improvement Authority did not have the funds to pay $1 million in principal and interest that it owed for a $20 million loan it got from the Casino Reinvestment Development Authority. It’s been five years now that The Improvement Authority had already been missing payments, totaling $7 million. The loan was originally made in 2005, which funded the construction of a New Brunswick hotel called The Heldrich. The hotel also has a conference center that the New Brunswick Development Corporation (a nonprofit) developed.
Stephen Sweeney, the president of the state’s Senate said that the corporation is a shining example of what can happen when public money is put towards the efforts of private firms and turned into large construction projects. The company is also being modelled by its sister company in Atlantic City, called Atlantic City Development Corp. They plan to raise over $200 million in financing (public and private) along with $19.5 of CRDA funds to develop a new project in the Chelsea section of the city called Gateway.

Chris Paladino is the attorney who put together both projects and oversaw the $20 million loan for Heldrich. The hotel has experienced low occupancy and has not attracted as many guests as it could have. The corporation had to use $750,000 of its own funds to fund certain basic costs. The CRDA loan was part of a $100 million package, including municipal bonds. The senior bond holders have been paid back with 5% interest on schedule, but subordinate bond holders have not seen a payment for a number of years.


Devco, also known as New Brunswick Development Corporation, is a private nonprofit development company specializing in real estate. It was founded in the 1970’s as a way to revitalize the city. It was named as a powerful engine of economic growth by the New York Times.

They focus on creating alliances with public and private partners. They finance projects that are of mixed-use. Their strategies often involve hotels and other large projects. DEVCO has handled over $1.5 billion of development.

This is a recap on an article originally written by Press of Atlantic City.
