LOS ANGELES - January 11, 2023 - (Newswire.com)

Ricardo London (www.ricardolondon.com), the e-commerce streetwear apparel company based in Los Angeles, California, has made the declaration to donate five percent of its profits divided amongst all 107 Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) throughout the United States in hopes of inspiring other black-owned brands, no matter the industry, to follow suit. The company made the conscious decision to contribute a percentage of its profits during the lifespan of Ricardo London's professional operations, etching in a socially conscious commitment.

It is no secret that most HBCUs are underfunded, but it is possible for small Black-owned businesses across all sectors to restructure their company's financial DNA to ease Black collegiate monetary burdens, and being a multi-million-dollar organization should not be the prerequisite for any company to do so, which is why the small team behind the young brand Ricardo London is implementing its giveback initiative immediately, and it will remain a mainstay as long as the e-commerce startup remains progressive in the streetwear market. 

When asked what inspired the community initiative to donate a percentage of its company's future revenues to HBCUs, Antonio Ricardo responded, "It was during Deion Sanders' 'Club Shay Shay' interview with Shannon Sharpe that Sanders asked what his distractors were doing on a regular basis to contribute to filling the funding holes that many Black colleges endure. It was in that moment that we decided to make giving to HBCUs on a quarterly basis part of Ricardo London's outreach." 

Ricardo London (www.ricardolondon.com) is an all-inclusive streetwear brand, but for its latest release, the "Shadow Alumnus Capsule Part 1", they decided to focus the capsule primarily on Black men and women as a way of sending a unified message of respect, loyalty, and commitment to Black culture. "Being that we are a Black-owned company, we felt the need to put our culture first and center, but all streetwear enthusiasts should expect future releases to encompass talent from all different walks of life," Antonio Ricardo stated.

Retailers meet in an discussion on Inventory Accuracy with RFID hosted by Carl Brown, President of SimplyRFiD

Carl Brown, founder and President of Simply RFiD, TikTok wonder, and RFID expert, hosts a weekly online roundtable "Transforming Inventory Accuracy." This roundtable brings up to six top retailers together to discuss how accurate inventory enables today's omnichannel supply chains - and, how to get there from here.

Quarterly inventories are obsolete. To compete today, inventories must be done daily or weekly.

Before RFID, the only choice was manual barcode counts that took days and were only 75-85% accurate (Source: Gartner Contemporary Retail Report, November 2021). Still, when RFID became viable around 2008, the value of RFID wasn't there because the concept of how to use a global accurate inventory didn't exist. Omnichannel and e-commerce are driving requirements for retailers. Store inventory must be connected to the web and it must be accurate.

This weekly roundtable explores the best practices for achieving 99% levels of inventory accuracy. "Store managers often think they have 95%+ accuracy - but, how do they know? Once RFID goes in, the truth is closer to 70%," says Carl Brown. "That's normal. It's impossible to measure without RFID - in this roundtable we discuss how to move from the unknown to the known, in an open format of sharing best practices and outcomes."

Retailers in previous roundtables include:

  • Nike
  • Adidas
  • Macys
  • Carters
  • Ralph Lauren
  • Urban Outfitters
  • Wal-Mart
  • Crocs
  • Dollar Tree

The next roundtable is February 7 at noon, Eastern. Roundtables are closed door. Press may apply to attend and audit, along with retailers at https://www.simplyrfid.com/mtb.

Carl can be reached for comment on TikTok, LinkedIn, and Twitter.
