Note from the editor

With Fourth of July coming up this weekend, Retail Dive will take a publishing break on Monday. Neither our daily newsletter nor our Retail Dive: Operations weekly newsletter will go out. We'll be finding time for our favorite food items, and we hope you do too.

We'll be back in your inbox as usual on Tuesday, July 6.
