It's not just food retailers that are facing difficulty expanding globally. Everyone from Wal-Mart to Best Buy has struggled to replicate home market successes in one or more foreign markets. Worse yet, international expansion distracts firms from changes needed to maintain competitiveness in their home markets.

How could you expect anything different from American business? From before WW II but especially afterward Americans have wanted to shove Americana, in varying forms, down the rest of the worlds throats. It's an attitude that the American way is the only way, this is not just in business but politically and socially as well. How could any business believe that what works here will work almost anywhere? I am not surprised particularly in the emerging consumerism in China. American business has no or little social sensibilities when it comes to foreign consumers or even what the form that consumerism takes. The Ugly American can be most certainly be applied to businessmen, politicians & military personnel just as much as it is applied to tourists.

Apple is rumored to be opening store-within-a-store locations at Target stores. That is awesome. Putting aside that these are two of my favorite stores, anecdotal evidence leads me to believe that there is significant overlap in the two stores' respective shopper profiles.

The reinvention of retail is no longer an opportunity but a necessity. How many more hundred-year-old brands will fall by the wayside before we realize they are simply the canary in the retail mine?
Harvard Business Review originally shared:
 
The recession has created a volatile environment for retailers. But volatility also presents opportunity, and some innovators are making a future for retail – combining the ease of online shopping with the emotional connection of a physical space, offering services beyond products, or laser-focusing on the right segment.

We asked HBR contributors to weigh in with their favorite examples.

There are not many masseuses in Jiaxing that are trained in therapies other than the rather painful (and for me, not relaxing) Chinese techniques of foot massage and cupping. Xueli, or "Sherry" in English, is the first place that I have found that performs other more western techniques like ashiatsu bar therapy, Swedish, oil, thai, etc. The ashiatsu bar therapy is great, this is where the therapists walk on your back, using bars on the ceiling to moderate the pressure; it really works out the kinks you get from hunching over a computer for eight hours a day. The staff there does not speak a lot of English, but they have a sheet of translations at the front desk that you can point to in order to choose the therapy, length of time, etc.
