In an effort to expedite the completion of the American Dream megamall in NJ, Triple Five Group has put up the Mall of America as collateral on a $1.67 billion bond. Despite being plagued with delays—it was originally started in 2004 and taken over by Triple Five Group in 2014—the mall has said it will be partially open this fall. Even so, much of the design took place in a different era, before the rise of the eGaming industry and before virtual reality experiences in malls became so commonplace. It’s unclear whether the coveted GenZ customer is still interested in Angry Birds-themed mini-golf and shopping at The Gap.

In its most recent Target-does-it-again move, the retailer has announced it will be launching a proprietary grocery brand called Good & Gather. While select groceries have been available at Target for a while, customers typically pick up food items at the retailer as an afterthought—that gallon of milk you realize you need when you’re out shopping for makeup or office supplies. If done correctly, Target’s history of successful private labels could help it compete with Walmart and Amazon to become a single destination for all customer needs.

Invisible aligner company SmileDirectClub has filed for an IPO, seeking to raise $100 million. While the company boasts impressive growth, initially fueled by its SmileShops and CVS partnership, it faces challenges from dental professionals like the American Association of Orthodontists, which has filed complaints against the company in 36 states alleging that it is violating industry regulatory standards. This could spell trouble for Smile Direct, especially with its competitor CandidCo, which only works with licensed orthodontists as opposed to general dentists, nipping at its heels.

In a new campaign on TikTok, grocery chain Kroger is testing a sponsored hashtag challenge to tap into the college back-to-school craze. The campaign—the first of its kind on TikTok—will not only allow users to engage in user-generated-content on the platform, but also shop for all of their school needs. While this could be a way for Kroger to gain brand recognition with TikTok’s 16-24-year-old demographic, it is unlikely that it will gain the sales it is looking for from such a young customer base on a yet-to-be proven platform.
