Target Offering Free Shipping On All Holiday Items

Originally posted on CBS Philly:

NEW YORK (AP) — Target Corp. is offering for the first time free holiday shipping on all items, including even $6 lipsticks, as the discounter throws itself in the ring to compete better with the likes of Amazon.

The Minneapolis-based chain said its free shipping offer starts Wednesday and will last through Dec. 20. The move is unusually early for a retailer — coming weeks before the official holiday season kickoff over the Thanksgiving weekend — and could squeeze Target’s profit margins. But the strategy underscores how retailers are willing to do whatever it takes to grab shoppers in the holiday shopping season, which accounts for about 20 percent of the retail industry’s total sales

“We know shipping costs play a big role in online purchasing decisions …. We believe our free shipping offer will create excitement and incremental sales for Target,” said Kathee Tesija, Target’s executive vice president and…

Serena Williams Suffers Worst Lost Since 1998, When She Was 16

SINGAPORE (CBSNewYork/AP) — Did that really happen?

Serena Williams was routed 6-0, 6-2 by Simona Halep at the WTA Finals on Wednesday in one of the most one-sided losses of the 18-time Grand Slam champion’s career.

The last time Williams managed to win just two games in a WTA Tour or Grand Slam match was in 1998 when she was just 16.

“Embarrassing describes the way I played today,” Williams said. “Very embarrassing.”

The loss in the round-robin match snapped Williams’ 16-match winning streak at the year-end championships, where she is the two-time defending champion.

The fourth-ranked Halep had never before beaten a player ranked in the top 3. In her previous two matches against Williams, both last year, the Romanian had won a total…
