The total print and digital audience for U.S. magazines increased 7.6% from 1.57 billion in July 2014 to 1.68 billion in July 2015, and the majority of this growth came from mobile devices: the total mobile Web audience jumped 58.3% from 281.4 million to 445.5 million over the same period. Meanwhile the size of the audience accessing magazine content via desktops or laptops edged up 3.2% to 256.9 million. As in previous months digital growth more than offset a smaller decrease in magazines’ total print audience, ad combined print and digital editions (which make up a small part of this subtotal) slipped 5.6% from 961.3 million to 941.4 million.
The department store retailer is now accepting unpackaged Amazon returns at its more than 1,100 stores nationwide. Kohl’s and Amazon previously piloted the program in some 100 Kohl stores in the Los Angeles, Chicago, and Milwaukee markets. In April, the chain announced it planned to roll out the service to all stores in July.
“The nationwide rollout of the Amazon Returns program is our single biggest initiative of the year,” said Michelle Gass, CEO, Kohl’s chief executive officer. “Our top strategic priority is driving traffic, and this transformational program does just that. It drives customers into our stores, and we are expecting millions to benefit from this service.”
