The CK Daily – Dads are Rocks
Goooood Morning CK Fam!!
Here we are again on a Monday morning to take on the week!
First of all, to all the dads out there, hope you had a great Father’s Day. For those that have lost theirs, may yesterday have been a celebratory reflection of a man you remember fondly of.
Dads are rocks. They are a rock as you grow up in the form of loving discipline and learning to do so much to be like them. They are a rock in always picking up the phone regardless of how busy they may be. A rock in the way of those that love unconditionally regardless of the mistakes in life you make.
So too is our holy Father. Always be praying.
Thanks for tuning in, and have peace on your heart this week,

Big U.S. retailers line up deals to take on Amazon Prime Day frenzy – Reuters
Are you ready to hear about all of the incredible deals going on right now? There are quite a few retailers fighting for your attention! This article from Reuters explains which retailers are going head to head with Amazon’s Prime Day Frenzy!
Amazon.com Inc will face challenges from big retailers during its annual Prime Day promotion, as more merchants piggyback on the multibillion-dollar online sales event.
Target Corp, Walmart Inc, Bed, Bath & Beyond, Macy’s Inc, and Kohl’s Inc are some top American retail chains offering big discounts and promotions to coincide with Prime Day, which takes place on Monday and Tuesday this year.
The two-day sales event, which generated here $10.4 billion in gross merchandise sales for Amazon last year, is taking place earlier than its traditional July run date, as the e-commerce giant looks here to boost spending in what are historically slow sales days in the quarter.
And retailers are not missing the opportunity to get a slice of that pie.
Department store chain Macy’s is teasing customers with an “Epic Specials” event for two days starting Monday, while rival Kohl’s is promoting cashback and discounts on beauty, apparel, and household goods through its Prime-day coinciding event called “Wow Deals.”
Target has taken it up a notch this year, increasing the number of products and discounts on its website during Prime Days. This is in contrast to most U.S. mall stores, which have been cutting down on assortment and promotions this year, the data showed.
Home furnishing retailer Bed, Bath & Beyond is offering an “even bigger and better” challenger event to Prime Day this year, with same-day delivery on orders $39 or more and rewards that give customers up to $100 for future purchases.
Some of its top deals include 60% off on Crux appliances and 25% off on Graco Pack ‘n Play baby cribs.
Walmart’s competing sales event will start one day ahead of Prime Day and end on June 22. The world’s biggest retail chain, which launched its own subscription program called Walmart Plus last year, is offering deals on built-in Roku TVs and Roomba vacuum cleaners, among other electronic items.
Amazon Prime Day, which has grown into a two-day shopping bonanza rivaling the U.S. holiday shopping season, will see 20 countries participate this year. The event in India and Canada, however, has been postponed due to COVID-19.
Adobe expects Prime Day to top $11 billion in total online spending for U.S. retailers this year, surpassing sales generated on Black Friday and Cyber Monday last year.
Today’s News to Start Your Day:
- Shoppers booting up a web browser and expecting to see big discounts on Amazon’s Prime Day might come away disappointed. Experts say Prime Day deals this year could be particularly limited due to supply-chain obstacles and robust consumer spending that have left inventories lean.
- With chicken wings in short supply and prices rising, Wingstop is “hacking” its own brand by launching Thighstop, a virtual restaurant that will serve up crispy chicken thighs. Like the original Wingstop, customers can pick one of 11 flavors and opt for either a bone-in or boneless thigh. The new brand will be available for delivery or carryout in 1,400 locations nationwide via DoorDash or on Thighstop.com
- American Airlines canceled hundreds of flights this weekend due to staffing shortages, maintenance and other issues, challenges facing the carrier as travel demand surges toward pre-pandemic levels.
- A number of workers have used the freedom of working remotely during the pandemic to leave behind their sedentary housing and move full-time into vans. These remote workers drive from location to location in their homes, working off internet hotspots in their vans, spending their free time in nature, and exploring new places. As vaccines roll out and states start to open up, some workers are returning to their offices, but for many of those who’ve adopted the van life, there is no end in sight to their life on the road.
- Target is adding food and beverages to Deal Days, its sales event, and answer to Amazon Prime Day. The coming months will test whether Target and other grocers can convince consumers to keep filling up fridges and cooking, even as they make social plans and return to dining out.
