Specifically, we deliver a promotional ensemble that provides a picture of potential trend changes and inflections. Our near term objective to dramatically improve our promotional signals by creating brand by brand business logic to truly help investors understand what constitute a steep discount, an extended sale, a flash sale, an unexpected promotion and more.
