NEW YORK—Responding to explosive changes and new technologies disrupting and revolutionizing home retailing, HFN is launching two weekly e-newsletters—Innovation & Inspiration and Omnichannel Retailing—published every Tuesday and Thursday, respectively.

In addition, HFN will publish Breaking News alerts so that home retail executives can stay on top of the most pressing industry news and events as they unfold. These new formats, the first of which you have received today, replace HFN’s daily e-newsletter.

“This is part of HFN’s repositioning and content and graphic redesign, which readers will also see in our January print issue,” said Maureen Azzato, chief brand officer of HFN. “We will be particularly focused on covering market disrupters and innovators who are shifting old retail paradigms.”

The Inspiration & Innovation newsletter focuses on cutting edge new product development as well as inspirational strategies that cutting-edge retailers, designers and manufacturers are bringing to market.

“By more heavily covering market disrupters and pioneers who are pushing into uncharted waters, HFN hopes to help all home retailers rise and remain more competitive and relevant in this marketplace also marked by unprecedented technology changes and digital commerce,” Azzato said.

HFN’s Omnichannel Retailing e-newsletter will deeply cover these new technologies and e-commerce strategies, particularly focused on home retailing.

“We view what’s going on today as no less than a total home retail renaissance,” Azzato said. “As HFN researched and studied all of the spectacular change going on in the market, our future role became abundantly clear. We realized that we had to not only change with you, but stay ahead of you so that we can better inform and prepare you for the many changes, innovations and sources of inspiration that could influence your strategic business decisions in the future.”
