A longtime business in Colorado Springs is shutting its doors. More than 150 people will soon be out of jobs.

Employees At CHEFS Catalog tell 11 News they found out about it in a meeting Friday. They say they were shocked and upset to hear the news. They did not want to go on camera.

CHEFS Catalog was purchased by Target in 2013. They sell kitchen accessories. The store is mainly based through a catalog and online. They also have a retail store in Colorado Springs near Centennial Boulevard and Garden of the Gods Road.

There are 160 employees who work at the main office in Colorado Springs and at the retail store. Twenty other people work at a location in California and will be out of a job, too.

Target officials say they are closing CHEFS Catalog and Cooking.com businesses. Target purchased both in 2013 but tell us they no longer align with the company’s direction.

Target said in a statement: “Target purchased CHEFS Catalog and Cooking.com in 2013 to help build new capabilities – like our recipe portal on Target.com – and to determine how guests might respond to broadened access to different brands. These businesses continued to operate separately from Target’s core digital business.

“Target’s digital business has strengthened and grown but as the company’s priorities evolved, CHEFS Catalog and Cooking.com no longer aligned with the broader strategy. Additionally, the results of these businesses did not meet our expectations.”

11 News talked to a customer who says she’s disappointed.

“It’s really sad since I just moved here and it seems like they have a lot of good stuff in there so, I would have been here more often if they were opened,” said Kristi.

Target tells us CHEFS Catalog should be completely shut down by early next year.

Here’s Why Amazon.com, Inc. May Launch a Clothing Line

Amazon.com (NASDAQ:AMZN) puts its brand name on its Kindle tablets, e-readers, and streaming television devices. It also has a line of products dubbed Amazon Basics, which includes everything from computer accessories to HDMI cables, batteries, kitchen accessories, and even pet supplies.

The Basics line tends to be a bit no-frills, but it’s well-priced, of decent or better quality, and in most cases offers a very good deal for consumers. In some cases, Basics is a house brand the way Whole Foods Market (NASDAQ:WFM) has its “365” products. Essentially, these are lower-priced choices that consumers can trust because Amazon has put its name behind them.

In other areas — specifically, the Basics electronics items — the online retail giant is offering a much cheaper alternative to expensive big-brand items. For example it sells a Lightning-to-USB charger for iPhone for $5.99 while the manufacturer charges $19 on its website.

It does not always work, but in some cases having Amazon offer an item in the Basics line has forced manufacturers to lower prices. It’s also very possible that the threat of having the retailer add an item to its self-branded roster might have been used to get a company to either sell its wares through Amazon.com or do so at a lower price.

Basics gives Amazon leverage it can use to make better deals, to keep companies honest, or even to bring reluctant brands to the bargaining table. That’s exactly the tactic the company appears to be taking as it considers entering the fashion industry.

Amazon is going to make clothes?
Amazon is likely to create its own private-label fashion line, according to Amazon Fashion VP Jeff Yurcisin, BuzzFeed reported.

“For Amazon, we know our customers love brands, many of the brands in this room … and that’s where the lion’s share of our business comes from,” he said at the WWD Apparel and Retail CEO Summit on Oct. 27. “When we see gaps, when certain brands have actually decided for their own reasons not to sell with us, our customer still wants a product like that. Amazon may get into private-label for those kinds of goods.”

Call it a threat wrapped up in a promise, but it’s clear that Amazon is putting the industry on notice. Do business with us at a good price, or we will make something similar and take business away from you.

It works for Whole Foods
Whole Foods generated $1.8 billion in sales in 2014 with its “exclusive brands” program — items only sold in its stores — equal to about 13% of the company’s retail sales. About half of the items in the program come from the 365 line, according to its 2014 annual report.

That means that about 6.5% of total retail sales are generated by the in-house brand, which gives the grocery chain leverage with its suppliers. WFM clearly has the ability to threaten to make a 365 version of a product if a manufacturer does not want to sell to it or will only do so on terms the company sees as undesirable.

There is no reason Amazon cannot use its own in-house fashion to create a similar situation where it generates significant sales while also giving the company power in its negotiations.

It’s not quite that easy
While Amazon has a huge customer base and sells quite a bit of clothing, customers look to it more for value than for high fashion. That’s something the retailer has been looking to change in recent months, bringing on higher-end brands including Calvin Klein, Levi’s, Kate Spade, and Steve Madden. Amazon also sponsored July’s New York Fashion Week for Men.

The retail giant is positioning itself as a purveyor of “contemporary fashion” rather than luxury brands, according to The New York Times. That keeps it away from the top-tier fashion brands, but it leaves a lot of room to work with major designers, or create its own answers to their products.

“What has a bigger reach than Amazon?” designer Rachel Zoe, who sells her clothes on Amazon.com, told the Times. “Amazon is a great destination for pretty much anything. They’ve been advocates of the collection and have put ads for it on taxis. It’s not five-page spreads in Vogue, but that’s the dream.”

Amazon should tread lightly
While the retailer has every right to use all the tools at its disposal to get manufacturers and designers to play ball, fashion is not food. Whole Foods can knock off a package of rice or create house-brand seltzer because many people just want to know the quality is there, rather than being loyal to a specific brand.

Amazon may find fashion a bit different from what the high-end food chain has successfully done. With clothes, and even accessories, brands matter. In the 1980s, when I was in junior high, Guess? jeans were all the rage with the girls in my class. A knockoff brand with a similar triangular logo, Palmettos, were sold at a much cheaper price, and some kids bought them.

The knockoff jeans didn’t carry the same cachet, though, and my classmates certainly took note of who had the real thing. That’s the risk Amazon is taking, but that doesn’t eliminate its leverage. It just makes it so the company should be careful which products it makes on its own.

This is an opportunity for Amazon to increase its product line, both by bringing on new partners and in some cases making its own clothes and accessories. It should proceed cautiously but use its selling power and enormous customer base to its advantage.

The next billion-dollar iSecret
The world’s biggest tech company forgot to show you something at its recent event, but a few Wall Street analysts and the Fool didn’t miss a beat: There’s a small company that’s powering their brand-new gadgets and the coming revolution in technology. And we think its stock price has nearly unlimited room to run for early in-the-know investors! To be one of them, just click here.

Popular dishes have value

Does this set of dishes have any value? This is only one piece of the collection. Thank you. — S. S., Barnesville, Ga.

Dear S. S.: The pattern in this case is known as “Blue Willow” or simply “Willow” after the prominent willow tree that is found in most of the patterns. This design originated in late 18th century England, but it was made deliberately to look like the origin was China.

It was patterned after wares made in Canton and Nanking and had a story about two young lovers with disapproving parents who attempted to elope. Pursued by the parents, the star-crossed youths prayed to the gods to be united forever, and as they crossed the arched bridge, they were turned into a pair of doves (yes, be careful what you wish for).

This was passed off by English merchants as a Chinese legend, but that was utter poppycock and was a thinly veiled concoction based on William Shakespeare’s “Romeo and Juliet.” The pattern was very popular, however, and it has been manufactured in many variations of the pattern.

This particular design was made by the Homer Laughlin Company, which according to their website was founded in 1871 by two brothers — Homer and Shakespeare Laughlin — in East Liverpool, Ohio. After Homer Laughlin sold his interest, the company moved to Newell, W.V., and produced a large portion of dinnerware made in the United States, including Fiestaware, but they produced many other patterns — including Blue Willow.

A mark on the back “H 44 N 6 or 8” means the piece was produced in August 1944 (“H” is the eighth letter of the alphabet and August is the eighth month) in plant No. 6 or 8 in Newell.

We have no idea what the value is, but Replacements Ltd. lists a teapot at $160. On the other end of the scale, a saucer is worth approximately $6, while a bread and butter plate should retail in the $7 range, and a dinner plate about $20.

Change your clocks

BOSTON – Clocks go back an hour Nov. 1. State Fire Marshal Stephen Coan advises changing batteries in smoke and carbon monoxide alarms when changing clocks. In addition, when changing your alarm’s batteries, check to see if your alarms need to be replaced. Smoke alarms last about 10 years and older carbon monoxide alarms last five to seven.

There are some new smoke and CO alarms that come with a sealed 10-year lithium battery. The batteries in these alarms never need changing, but the entire alarm needs to be replaced every 10 years. For more information on smoke alarms in Massachusetts, contact your local fire prevention office or go to www.mass.gov/dfs and type Smoke Alarms in the search box.

Steeple bell to ring again

The repairs to the steeple and bell are the first part of the church’s multi-year restoration project.

CommuniTREE ornaments

PLYMOUTH – CommuniTREE, which has the support of the town officials, is an effort by local citizens to have an ornament decorating the town tree for each of Plymouth’s service groups, charities, veterans groups, schools, churches, environmental groups and other community-focused organizations in the town, adding a special element to the traditional tree lighting Dec. 4 in Town Square and remaining on the tree through the holiday season.

Every community group in town is invited to create an ornament and have it on the tree. All ornaments need to be finished and ready to hang no later than Nov. 21. There are no limitations on the design of the ornaments, except to suggest that they be sufficiently large (about the size of a toaster), be ready to hang (hook, wire, etc.) and sturdy enough to withstand outdoor exposure.

If you cannot make your own ornament, provide a design. A rough design will be produced and cut out of wood that you can then paint and embellish at a “paint party” beginning at noon Sunday, Nov. 1, at the SEMPBA headquarters at 204 Long Pond Road. You will be asked to make a donation to offset the costs of materials ($5 or more) if an ornament is made for you. Send your ornament design (logo, sketch, picture) to lunacarts@comcast.net.

Three Harts Farm restoration

PLYMOUTH – Matt and Karen Glynn, of Glynn Electric in Plymouth, have announced the next PowerCorps project.

The program at Three Harts Farm has been named “Nathan Hale Veterans Growing Opportunities” with the goal to provide veterans with a holistic healing practice and therapeutic gardens that will play a role in the recovery of veterans from physical, emotional and spiritual injuries.

Market Samples – Winston

For Winston-Salem Wine Market customers, Saturday visits are a must. Each weekend, the shop holds a complimentary wine and beer tasting. People sip and mingle, laugh and tell stories.

“We wanted the place to feel really comfortable,” says Bob Kniejski. He and his wife, Wini, opened the store in late 2013.

The location, in a strip of brick buildings off of Hanes Mall Boulevard, provided ample parking and gave the Kniejskis the chance to customize the space. They drew inspiration from the idea of an open market, making the most of the tall ceilings and light-colored interior. Racks of wine arranged by region are well-spaced with room to browse. Wine accessories, Stonewall Kitchen specialty food products, Ashe County Cheese, locally made truffles, and other gifts are also available.

Bob Kniejski works with store manager Beth Binder to select the market’s 650 wines, plus 80 craft beers. They taste 95 percent of the wine sold in the store. Both of them rank each bottle. Then they compare notes and decide which ones would be best for tastings.

On Saturdays, the market presents six reds, six whites, and five craft beers for sampling. Distributors and representatives from area wineries and breweries are often on hand to answer customer questions. Each tasting wine is available to purchase for 10 percent off.

The free tasting, along with the discount, encourages customers to try something new—as does the market’s WineStation, which holds 12 bottles of wine and dispenses them in 1-, 2-, and 4-ounce pours. Customers load money onto a wine card, slip it into the machine, and make their selections. The cards can be used on multiple visits and can be reloaded once the balance is depleted. (You can see the WineStation’s current offerings at wswinemarket.com, as the station offers a variety of styles and price points.)

One day, the station held a $250 bottle of Opus One from California. “It was not inexpensive for a 1-ounce pour,” Kniejski says, “but it gives people an opportunity to say, ‘Is it really worth that much extra?’”

Creating a positive experience for customers is Kniejski’s focus. The market’s motto—Explore. Experience. Enjoy!—is reflected in its myriad of tasting opportunities and its emphasis on customer service.

“[Kniejski and Binder] know a lot about wine, but what they know best is their customers,” says patron Valerie Jackson.

As a nurse who now works in medical sales and marketing, Jackson places a lot of value on customer service. The Wine Market impresses her. In fact, she hasn’t been to any other wine shop since the market opened in 2013. And she’s attended all of the market’s wine dinners except one.

“It gives someone like me a chance to experience different wines and beers, but it also gives you a chance to have a different social network of people from diverse backgrounds,” Jackson says.

Kendra Kidby, another Wine Market regular, passes several grocery stores on her way here, and a couple of other wine stores are equally as convenient. But she buys 90 percent of her wine at the Wine Market. Her reasoning is simple: “They’re definitely the most welcoming.”

Diane Keaton puts her stamp on Pacific Palisades renovation

Serial home renovator and actress Diane Keaton has put a Pacific Palisades house on the market at $6.995 million.

The Oscar-winning actress bought the property three years ago for $5.6 million and created a restful living space featuring subdued-tone interiors. Rustic accessories and dark wood floors give the 2009 house a classic yet relaxed ambience.

In a departure from her previous remodeling projects, which often involved older home restorations and attention to historic details, Keaton has redone a newer home and made extensive use of words and signage as artwork.

Giant street numbers draw the eye at the front door, a bathroom sports the words “Teen Town,” and massive decorative lettering adorns an outdoor wall.

A formal entry, living and dining rooms, a kitchen/family room, a wine room with more verbiage, a study, a home theater, six bedrooms, six full bathrooms and two powder rooms are within three levels and 7,800 square feet of living space. The master suite has a patio and roof deck.

The nearly quarter-acre corner lot includes a lawn, a swimming pool and an outdoor living and dining area.

Keaton, 69, will be in the holiday film “Love the Coopers,” due out this month. The “Annie Hall” Oscar winner is at work on the television miniseries “The Young Pope” and next year’s animated film “Finding Dory.”

Aileen Comora and Paul Lester of the Agency are the listing agents.

A home away from the slopes

Olympic champion skier Bode Miller has listed his house in Coto de Caza for sale at $4.999 million.

The 10-acre-plus estate has 360-degree views taking in the mountains, ocean and scenery.

The 8,000-square-foot Tuscan-inspired home sits at the end of a tree-lined driveway. Living spaces include an office, a library, a bonus room, a butler’s pantry, a wine room, upstairs and downstairs laundry rooms, five bedrooms and 6.5 bathrooms.

There’s a six-car garage with a motor court.

The kitchen features high-end appliances including separate refrigerator and freezer, three ovens, three dishwashers, three sinks, two islands and a coffee station. It opens to the family room with sliding doors that access the backyard.

Miller, 38, was the overall Alpine Skiing World Cup champion in 2005 and 2008. He has won six Winter Olympics medals including a gold for super combined in 2010 at the Vancouver Games.

Stephanie Walling of Century 21 Award is the listing agent.

A sale is in his forecast

Dallas Raines, a familiar face in L.A.’s weather scene, has listed his house in Pasadena for sale at $3.498 million.

The hillside perch, with its panoramic views, has given the TV weatherman a great spot from which to access atmospheric conditions.

Set behind gates on more than an acre, the two-story home was built in 2007. The entry hall opens to formal living and dining rooms. The kitchen features stainless-steel appliances, black granite counters and a bar. A breakfast room opens to a family room/den with a fireplace.

Three bedrooms and five bathrooms are within the nearly 4,700 square feet of elegantly appointed interiors. The master suite contains a sitting area and a stone fireplace.

A putting green, sports court, fire pit and swimming pool with a spa are among the outdoor amenities. There’s a pool house with a kitchenette, bathroom and bedroom.

Raines, chief meteorologist at KABC-TV Channel 7, came to the Los Angeles station in 1984 from CNN.

He bought the property in 2008 for $2.9 million, public records show.

Laura Berns and Jason Berns of Keller Williams are the listing agents.

Late actress’ Irish home

Actress Maureen O’Hara sold her longtime home in County Cork, Ireland, for an estimated $1.8 million about a month before her recent death.

Two private islands are part of the 35-acre coastline property, known as Lugdine Park. In addition to the main house, there’s a guest cottage and free-standing swimsuit changing rooms. Views take in Glengarriff Bay and the mountains beyond.

Although O’Hara was caught up in the charm of the local village, scenery and rural setting in selecting the home in 1970, her then-husband, Charles F. Blair Jr., saw the nearby water as a “perfect place to land a seaplane,” she was quoted as saying in the property brochure.

Bay and dormer windows and a pitched roof add character to the 3,665-square-foot, five-bedroom main house, which is surrounded by a driveway.

Excluded in the sale but available for separate purchase were the household furniture, machinery and “the chattels within the house.” That’s Irish for personal possessions.

More than two dozen “ladies walks,” or nature paths, crisscross the grounds. Real estate descriptions don’t get much quainter than that.

Marketing details further noted that “the property is fully alarmed.”

O’Hara, who was 95, starred in more than 60 movies including “How Green Was My Valley” (1941), “Miracle on 34th Street” (1947) and “The Quiet Man” (1952). She received an honorary Oscar last year for her contribution to film during her 75-year career.

Sherry FitzGerald, a Christie’s International Real Estate affiliate in Ireland, handled the transaction. Roseanne De Vere-Hunt was the selling agent.

T.O.’s latest completion

Former NFL wide receiver Terrell Owens has come up a few yards short in San Fernando Valley, selling his home in Sherman Oaks for $2 million — $200,000 less than what he and his estranged wife, Rachel Snider, paid for it last year.

Built in 2013, the East Coast-inspired Traditional house is highlighted by French white oak floors, dove white wall siding and double-hung and picture windows. A wide porch with a swing wraps around the lower level of the two-story home.

Interior spaces include a step-down living room with raised ceilings and a fireplace that opens to a formal dining room and a chef’s kitchen with a wide center island. A family room, a den-office and a sun room are also within the 4,888 square feet of living space.

Five bedrooms and 5.25 bathrooms include a master suite with a sitting room, fireplace and massive walk-in closet. French doors off the master bathroom open to a private patio.

Outdoors, hedged grounds include a covered patio, a large expanse of grass and a swimming pool and spa with a waterfall features. Elsewhere on the grounds is a three-car garage.

Owens, 41, played 15 seasons for the 49ers, Eagles, Cowboys, Bills and Bengals, making five All-Pro teams. His 15,934 receiving yards rank second only to Jerry Rice (22,895) in NFL history.
