Nike digital strategy kicks independent sellers

A sports store in the Bronx was left in the dust after Nike announced it was cutting ties with the family-owned business after more than four decades to focus on digital sales and company-owned stores.

Moe Stein, the owner of Frank’s Sport Shop, called the move a “complete surprise” after making “in excess of $10,000,000 in business with them” throughout 40-plus years of being a Nike dealer.

Turtledove, the Chrome team’s proposal, wants to contain all auction dynamics within the browser. Sparrow, Criteo’s proposal, brings the auctioning outside of the browser and into an independent gatekeeper in part to increase transparency.
