Coach Pilots Mobile POS in Factory Stores, Boosts CapEx to $184M
Coach has joined the growing group of retailers deploying mobile point-of-sale technology as it seeks greater productivity and transaction throughput in its factory stores. The retailer also boosted its CapEx spending by nearly 25 percent this year, with another significant investment increase planned for fiscal 2013, in part to support technology and digital enhancements. CapEx spending for fiscal 2012, which ended June 30, 2012, totaled $184 million, up from $148 million spent the previous year, according to Coach CFO Jane Nielsen. The retailer projects an even bigger increase as much as 35 percent – for the current fiscal year.
