New Shoe Boutique Opens Saturday in Cooper-Young

As retailers brace themselves for one of the busiest weekends of the year, a new women’s shoe boutique in Midtown’s Cooper-Young district is hoping to capitalize on increased traffic during Small Business Saturday.

Saturday, Nov. 26, marks the grand opening of Shoenista’s at 2294 Young Ave., in the 1,000-square-foot space that formerly housed Victory Bicycle Studio. Early bird specials will be offered between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., as well as discounts and giveaways throughout the store all day.

Shoenista’s owner, Toni Hayes, said she was operating solely online for about a year, but was missing the clientele that came with a brick-and-mortar store.

“We were shipping, but people here wanted to try on shoes and didn’t really want to pay for shipping, so we decided to open a small boutique,” Hayes said. “The thing that I like about us is that our shoes change every week because we only get one case of a particular style of shoe. We may have anywhere between 20 and 30 different styles, but it’s only 12 pairs of that one style of shoe. So, if they want it, they have to come in and get it because they go really fast.”

Hayes owned a shoe store a few years ago in Cordova that is no longer open. The second time around, she opted for the “intimate feel” of the Cooper-Young neighborhood.

“It’s a growing community, you’ve got a lot of great places over there, and it’s really easily accessible,” Hayes said. “To me, it’s right smack dab in the middle of the city. Regardless of where you’re coming from, instead of going to Bartlett or Cordova, it’s over there by Tiger Lane. I just thought it was so cute, it’s such a nice area and I love the Cooper Young Community Association.”

More On Schools Consolidation

 

The cover story in the current edition of The Memphis News looks at the coming local schools consolidation against the backdrop of larger changes in education philosophy taking place across the nation.

And along the way we examined some other factors while we are in the time between the establishment of the new countywide school board and the consolidation planning commission and the first decisions about consolidation.

Here are a few points that didn’t make the cover story starting with a planning commission member who joins the others in agreeing the consolidation plan the group comes up with could be transformative for the city and county as a whole.

But also like the others, he acknowledged the risks are also just as real if the consolidation blueprint isn’t solid.

And a Realtor sees a window, at least for now, in terms of the public’s verdict which will determine whether consolidation is a bust or a success.

Christian Brothers University president John Smarrelli Jr. is bothered by what he termed the enduring “demarcation” between those inside the city of Memphis and those outside the city. The schools consolidation, he said, should go after replacing that with a new mindset as a larger goal.

“It’s bigger than our schools. It’s a state of mind and if we don’t start educating our pre-k through twelve that this is a state of mind and we need to be living it, I think what we are going to be looking at is one big wasteland and potentially one semi prosperous area that is not sustainable,” said the planning commission member. “We’ll die slowly.”

Realtor Sue Stinson Turner has not seen the first indication of parental concerns translating into the kind of flight that preceeded and followed busing in the 1970s. But she is quick to point out that ongoing concerns parents have about education even without such a historic change are part of the equation in the real estate market.

“In all honesty, I think it’s always affected real estate in some shape, form or fashion,” she said at a recent “Master Your Market” forum sponsored by Chandler Reports that focused on the coming consolidation. “That’s not going to change.”

Turner says whatever concerns are out there among homeowners haven’t translated to for sale signs. And she added the difficulties in the market amount to “an inability to sell properties for what they were once worth.”

“I think too many times our community reacts on fear. We react on what we don’t know is going to happen and the fear that something might happen. And so, people jump before they find out what the reality of it all is,” Turner said.” “We sell what we’ve got. And let’s give this a chance and see what it looks like before we decide we’re moving to DeSoto County. Because guess what, DeSoto County’s going to have those same problems before it’s over with if everybody goes there.”

 

What we’ve got here is a failure to negotiate

The National Basketball Association is still dealing with a lockout as a result of players and owners butting heads.

A so-called supercommittee of congressional legislators has failed to come up with a deficit reduction plan that prevents even billions of dollars more in painful, automatic and across-the-board cuts from going to effect.

More broadly, Republicans and Democrats in Congress remain farther apart than ever on key issues like taxes and the role of government.

I’m starting to see a pattern here: What we’ve got here is a failure to negotiate.

The economy is in shambles and nobody is attending professional basketball games these days for one simple reason: people have forgotten – if they ever really knew at all – how to negotiate effectively.

The most fundamental element of any good negotiation comes from the great English philosopher Michael Jagger. “You can’t always get what you want.”

Imagine how differently the country would look right now if some of these deadbeat decision makers tried a few of these approaches:

- Start with numbers. The congressional supercommittee had 12 members. I say that’s 10 too many. Why can’t a deal be reached with two honest brokers, one from each opposing camp? Imagine how efficient it would be to try and jointly write one book with 12 authors.

- Those two dealmakers need to be given a framework. They need to be working toward a specific goal, not the idea of a goal. Even if lease terms haven’t been drafted when two sides sit down to arrange a property rental, the sides at least agree on why they’re there in the first place.

- Speaking of which: part of the trouble is this idea that compromise is bad – after all, add just one letter and compromise becomes compromised, which no one wants to be. But negotiating does not automatically equal compromise. Compromise is only an element of the larger process of negotiation.

It’s easy to say “I don’t negotiate with terrorists” until the life of one of your family members is on the line. It’s probably a no-brainer that the hostage in that scenario is going to prefer the outcome of negotiations with the negotiator who’s got a stake in the outcome as opposed to the defiant one – the one who has nothing to lose.

Memphis-based Carson Rotisseries gains more national recognition

Memphis-based Carson Rotisseries is spotlighted in Men’s Health magazine’s Holiday Gift Guide as one of the top gifts for men this year.

The portable rotisserie grill, which comes in a heavy, metal suitcase, comes in at No. 49 out of 103.

It’s just one more impressive bullet point that Carson Rotisseries can add to its resume of national recognitions. This past spring, the local Brazilian grill startup took home the gold in the 2011 About.com Readers’ Choice Awards for favorite charcoal grill.

Lexus of Memphis Gets Brighter

Tuesday’s real estate focus dives into the history of Judy McLellan’s annual customer appreciation party, from when the real estate agent held the inaugural event at her home 23 years ago to one that now draws a crowd of about 400 at the Lexus of Memphis, 2600 Ridgeway Road.

Friday, Nov. 18, marked the third year for The JudyMac Team to utilize the upscale venue. But the car dealership has been through its own transformation in recent times.

Lexus of Memphis is the seventh Lexus retrofit for Noribachi Inc., a Delaware-based lighting firm that specializes in informed grid interaction. Noribachi retrofitted metal halide lights in Lexus of Memphis’ show lots with a range of bulbs containing 144 Light-emitting diodes (LEDs) in the largest bulbs to 24 LEDs in the most economical.

The result was not only significantly reduced energy usage, but also improved color rendition of the Lexus of Memphis’ vehicles. The Noribachi LED bulbs used emit a 6500K color temperature, producing a cleaner, whiter light, which emulates daylight far better than any other artificial light source. For comparison, typical metal halide bulbs have a color temp of 4000K.

Noribachi also retrofitted 84 high bay fixtures in the service bays, where mechanics need the best light possible to work with minute pieces and complex engine parts.

Leonard Temple, director of IT services at Lexus of Memphis, called Noribachi LEDs “the closest to daylight you can get,” adding that the bulbs are not only effective in cutting costs, but in generating sales as well.

“There is only one person who doesn’t like our new LEDs: the car dealer across the street,” Temple said. “People keep coming over to our dealership because it looks so much better.”
